The sweet animal mentioned in this article is a yellow cat, and the iconic Pokémon is technically a rat, but still, something in the way the cats look reminds us of the famous cartoon star.
"Pikachu is real and can be found in Thailand," tell people raving about a cat that resembles one of the iconic cartoon creatures.
There is no reason to be worried about this cat's health and why it has a lemon color. It is not a rare breed or an exotic animal, and it wasn't being painted yellow. The cat is just being covered with turmeric.
Turmeric is a prevalent spice mainly used in curry and also for flavoring or giving color to the mustard, sugar, milk, and of course, curry powder.
The plant has many other health benefits besides being useful in the kitchen.
Turmeric is an efficient natural plant and has various medicinal properties. It is considered an excellent natural medicine for treating high fever, or for high cholesterol, treating insomnia, a type of liver disease, and itching.
One of the most popular uses of turmeric is a treatment for inflammation and pain disorders, such as osteoarthritis, because turmeric contains chemical curcumin, which reduces swelling.
Thammapa Supamas lives in Thailand, and she is the cat's owner. She used turmeric as a home remedy to treat the fungal infection of her kitty.
Thammapa put a paste made from turmeric powder all over the cat body, and the wound healed as hoped. As you see, the side effect of this treatment was that the once white cat turned into yellow. The color of the animal will return to its original color after a few months when a new fare will grow.
