To be honest,I cannot remember seeing any cats in Phuket...??...Maybe it was just me,as i am not interested in cats at all and took no notice of them....

Hope this phobia does not prevent you from holidaying in Phuket or anywhere for that matter....??...

The Thais like their animals and don't harm them, ive seen cats but more often dogs esp stray ones but they are cared for by locals, that is all over Thailand not particulary to the panwa area. You will prob find very few cats as the hotels will/do have a neutering programme and dogs are more often seen around beach front, shops and roadsides.

I have stayed at Cape Panwa in 3 different resorts over the past 18 months and can't remember seeing any cats at all, looking forward to returning soon.

There are a few cats around Cape Panwa, but they seem to stay away from people unless approached. They arent the over friendly sort that wrap themselves around your legs like some of my friends cats do, I am sure you wont have any problems staying away from them.

Would you recommend Radisson Blu Jem and are there any water sports on the beach?

Many thanks

I prefer cats to most people I meet, so perhaps I'm not the one to comment. There are a few cats near hotels because people (like me) feed them. It's not that there are dozens of them. However if you don't like them, simply don't go near them. Believe it or not, cats know that you don't like them and they won't come near you, not like dogs. You don't have stray cats in Glasgow?
