Woman Accidentally Dyes Cat Yellow After Applying Turmeric Treatment

Woman Accidentally Dyes Cat Yellow After Applying Turmeric Treatment

A cat owner who applied a treatment to her beloved pet to get rid of a fungal infection accidentally ended up dyeing the poor moggy completely yellow.

As anyone who has ever cooked or eaten a decent curry knows, turmeric can be a difficult stain to shift.

However, it also has some pretty decent properties, including - apparently - being a treatment for fungal infections in cats.

So, with that in mind, Thammapa Supamas, a cat owner from Thailand, liberally applied some of the magical plant extract to her cat when it developed an infection.

Instead of covering just the affected area, she coated the whole cat in it, dyeing it bright yellow, and turning it into something of a Pikachu lookalike.

So, it's not exactly what she intended, but the results are pretty cute, you'd have to admit.

The best news about this whole thing is that she's documented the whole process on Facebook, right down to actually making the cat look like the famous Pokémon character.

Don't worry, the stripes and red cheeks were added after the fact, using a filter.

As you can see, the cat was originally a lovely white colour, but now is set apart from all the other cats on the street due to this treatment, which was - admittedly - applied with good intentions.

You see, turmeric has an active component called curcumin, which is known to reduce signs of ageing, and - crucially - decrease inflammation.

It is also responsible for the yellow stains that you get on your hands and clothing if you're not careful when cooking or eating anything that contains it.

Anyway, her overly thorough application of the treatment means that her cat is going to be yellow for a bit just yet.

Luckily, this story has a happy ending.

The treatment seems to have worked pretty well, and the feline's poorly paws are starting to improve.

Given the amount of the stuff she's used, it's unlikely that any other flare-ups will be occurring anywhere else, too.

She's shared a few pictures since the incident that show the cat's paws before and after the yellowing happened.

So, despite the fact that this tale - or tail, as the case may be - has worked out well, it's worth pointing out that we are not recommending that anyone should head for the spice rack and start covering their pets in turmeric.

You shouldn't be resorting to any leftfield home remedies without first getting your pet checked out by a qualified professional.

Also, don't go dyeing your pet to look like Pikachu. It can't consent to that and will probably just scratch you.
