Namdee Witta's Khaomanee Museum

For many years, these signs to “Royal Cats (Dimond-Eye [sic]) Park” were a distinctive landmark on the main road West out of Bangkok to Nakhon Pathom. The red sign was viewable from the east and the blue sign was viewable from the west. Namdee Witta here showed Khaomanee cats in gilded cages that were ostensibly descended from 18 cats belonging to his mother that were favourites of King Rama V*. However, the museum now appears to have disappeared, at a guess, affected by the severe flooding of late 2011.
