Feline Paradise on Earth

Yes, it does exist. Its existence makes you realise that there is hope yet in this crazy world we live in....

This is my Mama's account:
A chance visit to the northern island of Langkawi gave us an opportunity to visit this wonderful place called LASSie (Langkawi Animal Shelter and Sanctuary Foundation) currently occupying the grounds of Bon Ton Resort. The organisation was set up to receive, rehabilitate and care for neglected, abused and needy animals. I saw some woofies lounging in the enclosures but what made me sing is that the cats are allowed to roam free. Lovely photos will make you drool, peeps.
Look out for this marker along the road from the airport to Pantai Cenang, drop by for coffee or tea, lunch dinner or breakfast at this lovely resort. There's a lovely shop selling all sorts of creative crafts where proceeds will go to the shelter.
Hmmm...reception committee awaits...complete with head butts and leg wraps.
Yusuf...beautiful, regal and friendly...ok...maybe a bit gender confused. A she with a he name...
Mama says Yusuf will be Brad's new bride. Lulu is free for others now...teeheehee....
Mama says this little lady reminds her of me when I was a little girl...
.....and...action! They really know how to pose for the camera.
And who says cats hate water?
When cat ladies meet....they talked toys...environment friendly cat toys to be precise.
The Bon Ton Resort offers a unique experience of staying in Malay village houses...complete with resident cats, of course.
Beautiful landscape at the resort...purrrfect setting for Brad and Yusuf's wedding I must say.
Mama says next time we'll stay here.
Visited the shelter proper, those staying in the enclosure are either sick or new arrivals, not fit to roam the grounds yet.
Guess this kitty's name? Hint: moustache.
aaahhh....what a life...
Oh...the kitties need forever homes too...They can't stay in the shelter forever...

Angelina's note: Check out and for further information. A quick glance tells me you can contact them to make a donation, make a booking to stay at the resort, or even if you want to volunteer at the clinic and shelter. purrr.....meow!!!
