Photos From Soi Dog Foundation’s Post


This is a tale of three little kittens. No, they hadn’t lost their mittens…it was much worse than that. They were found abandoned in a rice field, all sick with flu and their poor little eyes infected. One didn’t make it, but two – a boy and a girl – did.

This post focuses on the little boy, Thungyah. But before you read on, will you please consider joining our Care for Cats Club? Just click this link: https://bit.ly/yes_i_want_to_save_kittens.

Pledging whatever monthly gift you can afford will help kittens and cats in trouble like these babies were.

Or if you prefer, you may make a one-time gift. Anything at all will help kittens like Thungyah and his sister, Thungnar. We’ll tell you all about her in an upcoming post.

Thungyah and his sisters were found by a kind woman on her way to Soi Dog Foundation to have her pet sterilised. She and her friend happened to spot the tiny babies in the rice field, where they’d apparently been dumped by someone too heartless for words.

This wonderful animal lover arrived at Soi Dog and told us about the kittens. We quickly went and collected them. There was no mother in sight, and the kittens were in desperate shape. Rice fields are very watery, so the poor things, only 12 weeks old, were lucky they hadn’t drowned.

Thungyah had the cat flu, a common and highly contagious disease in unvaccinated cats of all ages. It tends to be particularly severe in kittens.

But he also had an equally concerning problem: a severely infected, swollen eye. The condition is called buphthalmos. In Thungyah’s case, our vets acted quickly and managed to save his eye. He is blind in it, sadly, but it didn’t have to removed, and he still has one eye he can see out of.

This poor baby was also understandably depressed. His mum was gone, his human had dumped him and his sisters, and he was too young and small to be able to fend for himself.

Thungyah and his sister are safe at Soi Dog now. Thungyah is receiving treatment for his depression; the symptoms of his cat flu; diarrhoea and the mild dehydration probably caused by it; a combination of dermatitis and a fungal infection; and hair loss. He has also been dewormed.

This baby kitty could not have been treated for his issues, and his life saved, without the wonderful animal lovers who give to our Cat for Cats Club.
