‘Long’ time no see, Chadchart tells former feline staffer

Like a diamond bullet to our hearts, Chadchart Sittipant knows how to blast his way past our skepticism. Just write a disarmingly sincere diary entry about a cat.

The former transportation minister was removed from his cabinet post in May, but that didn’t stop him this morning from checking in on an old friend and employee, Long the cat.

“I stopped by the Lat Krabang airport link station to visit Long,” Chadchart wrote. “Haven’t seen him for months. I brought him two steamed mackerels.”

Chadchart said Long was looking well.

“He got fatter and seems to be in a good mood today. He let me hold him (Maybe because of the fish I brought),” he said.

In closing, the minister who launched a thousand memes invited well-wishers to say hello to Long in person at the ticket booth, but remember the kitty only works weekdays.

Chadchart introduced Long to the world in January and has also dished on high-level discussions with the kingdom’s top American diplocat.
