Wichien Cats in Chiang Mai?

Dear Editor
I am looking for a Wichien Maat (or Siamese) kitten and I wonder if you know of any such source in Chiang Mai ?
I have been told that there is a lady who breeds them who lives near the Tapae gate, but as we live in Chiang Rai I have not been able to check this out yet.
Please email the editor at [email protected] if you know where I can find a Wichien Maat kitten.
Regards
Cat lover


Potholes!

Dear Editor,
Is it me or are the potholes getting worse? The roads are filled with them of late, and while I realize the city is limited in what they can do now that the rains have started, surely getting some of these monsters filled in should be a priority. Is there a pothole reporting hotline? Do they even know about these death traps? And while I am on the subject of death trap potholes, when the rains are heavy and the roads filled with overflow from backed up drains, these potholes are impossible to see and even more dangerous. Not everyone drives a car, many of the city’s residents are on motorbikes and these rain filled holes are a bike driver’s worst nightmare!
The roads are deteriorating right before our eyes it seems and I can only shudder to think what will happen when the real heavy rains start.
Yours,
Up to here with potholes!


Dangerous signs

Dear Editor
It seems to be election season every other month of late and I must say these campaign signs on the sidewalks are very dangerous. My Thai girlfriend nearly drove into one sticking out into the lane as she turned her motorbike around a corner. They make walking along already difficult pavements that much more difficult and they often block important lines of sight when driving, making it nearly impossible to see oncoming vehicles in some locations.
I realize that the campaigns must continue but surely some kind of restrictions on their placement and size must exist? I know that getting laws enforced are difficult enough as it is but why can’t such a simple thing be enforced? These are the people who will be running the local government, surely they should respect their constituents’ needs?
I love living in Chiang Mai and am tolerant of many of the idiosyncrasies of life here but these signs are a menace and I find it rather sad that it is people running for elected office that are putting people’s lives at risk.
Signed
Fed up with signs!
