What if I find a cat in need?

Thanks for caring! Mother cats have a habit of leaving their kittens in unlikely places such as drainpipes, plant pots, old kids paddling pools etc. The mother is usually not far away. Unless the kittens are clearly ill they are best left where they are.

However, sadly there are many cats and kittens in Chiang Mai that urgently need help. Alone, abandoned, sick kitten(s).

A sick or injured cat or kitten should receive medical attention as soon as possible. The climate in Thailand means that a sick animal can die of dehydration very quickly. If you find a cat that is obviously sick or injured, please take it to a vet. You can find a list of our recommended vets and other advice on what to do by following the link below.

For other needs, or to see if there is space in the shelter you can contact us or write to the Facebook group.

Back in 2004, Liz and Mel Purdue met Khun Lek (Rampang Puangping) in Phuket. Sharing a love of animals, they started helping the many stray dogs and cats on the island (and a few stray children as well). Following the death of Mel Purdue, Liz and Lek moved to Chiang Mai, bought land in Mae Rim and built a house.

Kitten rescue in Mae Rim started with a kitten called Smokey found at the side of the road in early 2017. She was our first adoption. More followed! Today we have a shelter at the house in Mae Rim for around 40 cats and kittens, a facebook group with more than 500 members from all over the world. We have rescued and homed hundreds of kittens, helped a number of badly injured kittens and sterilized untold numbers. We have developed an excellent relationship with a number of local vets, have invaluable support from WVS Thailand for our sterilization program and have a network of Thai and Western people working to improve the lives of stray cats in and around Chiang Mai. Khun Lek’s family continues her work in Phuket and Phitsanulok.
