He may have been forced to resign after leading Thailand’s oldest political party to embarrassing defeat at the polls last month, but the former leader of the Democrat Party still has one thing going for him.

Abhisit “Mark” Vejjajiva is surrounded by pussy – from fancy breeds to tabbies and calicos alike.

The 59-year-old recently outed himself as a cat slave via his official Line account to promote his daughter Prang Vejjajiva’s virtual cat cafe called Cat Garden by Tiggu (which does not seem to be a real place).

That’s meant posing for many adorable photos with kitties, which one observer pointed out might have helped a few weeks earlier: “You should have posted these photos BEFORE the election.”

“Next time (you run for PM) please establish a THB30 treat for every cat policy,” another cheeky netizen wrote.

Prang, who identifies herself on Instagram as a “Bangkok-based cat artist” has quite a catalog of watercolor cat renderings, which are another internet rabbit hole to fall into entirely.

The New York School of Visual Arts MFA grad wrote on Instagram yesterday that they have a baffling 26 cats.

She said her father didn’t like cats at first and was more of a dog person but grew to love them after he entered into their service.

But enough background. You came here for the cat photos. Enjoy. Some of Prang’s cat watercolors follow, but they’re exactly what they sound like.
