Cats abandoned on Phi Phi Island

In other news, over 1,000 of cats have been stranded on Thailand’s Phi Phi Island,left behind by their owners after COVID-19 killed the Island’s tourism industry.

The cat’s owners, who were working people and entrepreneurs, left the islands at the start of the pandemic, thinking it would only be temporary. The situation, however, has never really improved.

Only some came back to retrieve their feline friends, after it was clear tourists were not returning to the resort islands any time soon, according to Suda Klinchuen, a volunteer.

The authorities have tried to control the feline population through mass sterilization, but to no avail.

As a result, every day a large number of cats are seen on the roads of the islands, waiting to be fed by cat loving volunteers. The feeding started in March last year, according to Suda.
