The cat sanctuary at Wat Pa Pao needs your help.
Khun Dee, who isn’t a monk, has about two dozen cats/kittens. If you’d like to take home one or more, please do so. Wat Pa Pao is along the north road around the moat, just before you hit the northeast corner, along the outside of the old city. Once you go inside, turn left at the food stall and go on back. The cats live in the temple building on your right, in the back. You should see a few cats, they sleep everywhere. There are twenty or so and they love visitors.

Please donate food and/or flea treatment either directly to the Wat, to any branch of Gecko Books, or to Tuskers Bar and Grill. If you wish to donate cash to the spay/neuter/vaccination fund, you can do so at either Gecko or Tuskers.

Wat Pa Pao: 58 Maneenopparat Road, 053 418 046
