This selfless and generous man from Tḩᶏіℓᶏᶇɗ has been living on the streets for many years but that doesn’t stop him from feeding the stray cats on a daily basis.
Meet Loong Dum, who has fluttered thousands of hearts online by feeding wild cats on the streets of Tḩᶏіℓᶏᶇɗ even if he can afford a decent meal himself
Loong, who has been homeless for years, makes money selling lemons at the Mo Chit BTS station in the bustling city of Bangkok.
The revenue from selling lemons has always been for the purchase of feral cat food
According to Loong, he is not afraid to have no food but his heart will break when he sees a hungry stray cat
“I’m fine with skipping meals, but the cat needs to eat,” Loong said in an interview.
His touching story first went viral on social media after a young woman named Warunya Wattanasupachoke saw Loong selling lemons at a train station.
In the photo she took, Loong was holding a board made of cardboard that read “20 baht a bag, profits will pay for the cost of wild cat food”.
“We should not judge someone based on their appearance,” Warunya said.
“Take for example Loong Dum. Even though he is homeless and looks rude, he has a big heart, ”she added.
There was a time when people turned away from him just because of his bad looks. However, Loong does not notice it as long as he earns a few pennies to buy food for the cats.
At the end of the day, when Loong makes enough money to buy stray cat food, he usually gets two bags of wet food or a can of tuna.
If he has more money, he will use it to buy food for himself.
When asked why he sacrificed such feral cats, he said that the feral cats he kept every day were his family and that they rely on him for food.
Fortunately, donations started pouring in after Loong’s story went viral on social media.
Thanks to the kindness of netizens, who were touched by his story, Loong has received tons of cat food.
Some people even donated some items for his personal use while some would buy lemons from him when they saw him at the train station.
Generous donations don’t stop there.
Some of the kind strangers even got him a new haircut, new clothes, and other items
Loong may still live on the streets and sell lemons to make money except for wild cat food, but he knows it makes his heart satisfied.
