Thammapa Supamas, a Facebook user from Thailand who also happens to be a cat owner, recently posted some images of her cat on social media that left everyone confused, even herself. The post quickly went viral and gained thousands of shares, likes, and comments from people around the world.
It turned out that this unfortunate cat was suffering from a fungal condition. Turmeric, an Indian spice and medical plant used to treat infections, was accidentally used to heal the ringworm, resulting in the cat being accidentally colored a bright yellow.
When asked about her cat’s condition in an interview with Bored Panda, Supamas expressed concern about the situation. She did everything she could think of to get rid of the ringworm, but nothing worked. As a result, she turned to her mother for advice, who recommended that she utilize turmeric. However, instead of only covering the damaged region, she decided to cover the whole cat’s body.
“My cat Ka-Pwong had ringworm, we did everything to cure it, but nothing worked. It was at that point that my mum came up with the notion of utilizing turmeric. The ringworm was the first place she used it, but since there was so much left, she decided to paint the whole body in order to avoid future fungal infections,” Supamas said.
The turmeric scrub appears to have worked very effectively, and the feline’s badly paws are beginning to mend. But regrettably, it affected the hue of Ka-Pwong and converted her into somewhat of a Pikachu doppelganger.
Moreover, it was not easy to wash the distinct color off as it wouldn’t wash off.
Although the outcomes aren’t precisely what Supamas had in mind, you have to agree that they are very adorable.
Supamas even went so far as to alter some of her cat’s images in order to make him seem even more similar to Pikachu.
“It’s possible that my cat is completely unaware that it is becoming yellow now. “The cat is now lively and consumes a large amount of food as is customary,” Supamas said.
Turmeric is well-known for its ability to lessen the effects of ageing and inflammation. Despite the fact that it decreased irritation and prevented licking of the wound region, we believe that it should not be repeated without first contacting a veterinarian.
Supamas is hoping that the color will disappear and that her cat’s hair will alter as a result of the treatment. In the meanwhile, I am hoping that the fungus has been treated and that my cat will become white as well.”
