據當地媒體報導,貓咪飼主Thammapa Supamas表示一開始發現雪白色的貓身體上似乎有被感染,採取較為傳統但安全的治療方式,將整隻貓塗抹薑黃以確保沒有遺漏任何有可能遭受感染的部位。

According to local reports, Thammapa Supamas, the cat owner, claimed that she first noticed that her snow-white cat had a fungal infection so she took a more traditional approach to cure the animal by applying turmeric to its entire body.

雖然薑黃富有薑黃素可以消毒、消炎,然而使用過後因其顏色較為鮮豔,容易附著在使用者身上。

Though turmeric contains “Curcumin” which has antioxidant, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties, direct contact turned the animal’s fur yellow-ish.

貓咪的新造型引發網友熱議,許多人紛紛在照片下表示「貓咪真的太像皮卡丘了!」,而熱心的網友也特別為貓咪P圖,使他瞬間成為泰國版皮卡丘。

The cat’s new look has earned the love of netizens, with many drawing comparisons between the poor animal and Pikachu, leading to numerous attempts to transform the cat into a live-version of the Japanese anime.
