The story of Loong Dum from Thailand proves that you don’t really need to have a lot of money to be kind and have a big heart to help others in need, whether people or animals.

Loong lives a tough life in the streets, with the train station as his ‘home’. Most of the time he does not have any money and could barely eat a good meal, yet Loong takes good of stray cats that have become his family. To earn money to buy food for the cats, Loong sells lime.

He does not also earn much as people tend to shun him for his unkempt appearance, but Loong does not mind as long as he gets a few coins to feed the stray cats.

Because money is hard to come by, he feeds the cats first. If there’s extra cash, he gets to eat. But for Loong, that does not matter as long as the cats are full because he feels responsible for their well-being, treating them more as his children than just mere strays living in the streets.

I’m fine with skipping meals, but the cat needs to eat,” Loong said.

A young woman named Warunya Wattanasupachoke saw Loong and his sign. She was impressed that this guy would put the stray cats first, knowing he surely missed a lot of meals just to make sure the cats get to eat. So, every day, he tries to sell lime in the streets.

Warunya not only bought some lime, she also encouraged netizens to buy from Loong to support the cats – and many answered the call! Aside from buying lime, many also brought food for Loong and his cats, making the homeless man dance with joy. Awwww. It was so sweet.

To help Loong look more presentable so he could sell more lime, someone also gave him proper clothes and a haircut.

He certainly deserves this for having such a kind heart…
