Farmers In Thailand Use Soft Toys In Prayer To Rain God |

Farmers in Thailand have adapted themselves to use soft toys featuring cats and cat characters while praying to rain God. Traditionally, they worshipped using real cats by caging and splashing water on them. Over the years, people have moved on from using animals in the ritual which would anciently involve black cats being splashed with water until they cried, which would symbolise them pleading and attracting rain.

Now, the country has reportedly went ahead with the anti-animal cruelty move by introducing cat-themed soft toys. Toys of characters like Doraemon and Hello Kitty replaced real cats being used in the ritual dedicated to summon rains. It is said to have started in 2015 where a few villagers switched to this amid the increasing concerns of animal abuse in the country.

Media outlets reported the incident by stating that Thailand is using plush toy versions of the Japanese cartoon character such as Doraemon or Hello Kitty to summon rain in rituals to replace real cats to avoid distress. It is learned that the recent way of following the tradition and keeping in the lines with animal welfare is impressing people.
