A pet owner in Thailand accidentally transformed her cat into something resembling Pikachu with a turmeric scrub.
Thammapa Supamas, was worried after she noticed her feline had developed a fungal infection on one of its limbs. To treat the infection, she decided to apply a turmeric scrub on the white cat.
While turmeric is prized for its antifungal and antibacterial properties, it also stains easy. Ms Supamas learned first-hand just how easily it stains when she ended up dyeing her cat yellow with the turmeric scrub.
Pictures of the cat have gone viral on social media. After being pointed out that it resembled Pikachu, the owner shared more snaps of the transformation.
The good news, however, is that the remedy seems to have worked, for Ms Supamas also shared photos of the cat’s limb healing after the turmeric treatment.
