He is homeless and has been for a large period of his life. But he has someone special to take care of, who he cares for more than he does himself.
Loong Dum is never certain where he will find his next meal. But whatever happens, no matter what that meal might be, his four-footed feline sidekick is fed first and well fed at that.
Loong Dum sells limes in Thailand to help keep himself and his cat fed. His sign reads “20 baht per bag, profits will pay for his stray cat’s food expenses.” As well as his own cat, he feeds other stray cats too.
The kind-hearted man’s story is making its rounds on the net by people who admire his love for his cat.
“I’m fine with skipping meals, but the cat needs to eat,” he said in the article.
Warunya Wattanasupachoke, who publicized the story after meeting the man herself, says that this is a great lesson in seeing past people’s looks.
“We shouldn’t judge someone based on their appearance,” she said, according to Coconuts Bangkok. “Take Loong Dum for example. Though he is homeless and rugged-looking, he has a big heart.”
This short and sweet tale is a beautiful reminder that humanity comes in many different forms!
