If you’re a person who loves animals, especially cats, it’s best to start planning a trip to the Bukit Bauk Forest Reserve because it recently opened it’s very first cat park.
Besides creating a safe space for cats and cat lovers alike, another purpose of the Dungun cat park is to ensure less stray cats at public places.
As of right now, the park hosts 30 stray cats, most of which were rounded-up from public eateries and markets, and they are currently being taken care of by passionate animal lovers.
According to Dungun Municipal Council (MPD) president, Lizan Che Mat, in an interview with Free Malaysia Today, the park is set to accommodate 150 cats at one time and is currently being run by two MPD employees. These employees will be provided with courses on how to manage the cats by the Terengganu Veterinary Services Department.
The park also contains isolation units for the cats as well as periodic medical care and check-ups that are provided by the Terengganu Veterinary Services Department.
The best part of the park is that all visitors are allowed to enter for free to visit these cats and are even encouraged to donate food, medicine, equipment and funds to sustain the needs of these furry cuties.
We can’t express how wholesome it is for this park to take on the initiative to save stray cats from the streets and give them a better home. We hope that the cats will enjoy their stay at the park and that more people would visit them once the CMCO is lifted.
