Klang is about to welcome its first stray cat park very soon

Currently being built in Taman Bandar Klang and set to open this August, the government-led initiative aims to provide a safe space for stray cats.

The park will house stray cats caught by the Klang Municipal Council and may also allow the public to adopt these animals.

Although there isn't much information on what else to expect, the cat park appears to already have containers, a sand pit, and large grassy areas where the cats can roam freely.

This isn't the first stray cat park in Malaysia

A similar one was built by the Sepang Municipal Council in Taman Tasik Cyberjaya in February 2023 to provide protection for street cats around the Sepang district.

Cats rescued from the streets are taken in and assessed by a veterinarian to determine if they have any health issues. They are then vaccinated and cleaned before being housed in the cat park.

At the park, there's an Intensive Care Unit equipped with cat medication and supplies. Additionally, a veterinarian checks on the cats a couple of times a week.

Visitors are free to adopt the cats once they have fully recovered from any health problems. Donations for cat food and litter are also welcome.

According to the Selangor State Legislative Assembly, this initiative of providing animal protection centres is one of the ways to address the issue of stray dogs and cats in Malaysia

Through an animal adoption programme, the public will be able to adopt these animals from the shelters. In addition, the state government also plans to implement and increase awareness programmes for pet owners to neuter their pets.

Hopefully, we'll see more of these safe environments for strays in the coming days!

As another great initiative, Selangor plans to ban all pet stores from selling cats and dogs, encouraging people to adopt pets from shelters instead:

Adopt, don't shop! With many furry friends around that need a home, let's consider adopting instead of buying:
