ARE ANY OF THE TIGERS HERE DRUGGED?
Most visitors came and spend a relatively short time in Tiger Kingdom, more than often they would encounter that these tigers are always sleeping. But cats are cats and they sleep up to 18 hours a day, just like kitty at home. Please do not assume our cats are drugged. To make the most of your visit, our staffs will play with the tigers during the day. And our cats are also trained to sleep and rest at night.
The Phuket Tiger Kingdom might not be to everyone’s taste but we however took an hour to stop over and see for ourselves if animals were at least well treated. It allows you the opportunity to get up close and personal with several Indochinese tigers of varying ages and sizes. This Tiger Kingdom is located just next to the well-known and long established Go-Kart race track, just before climbing the hill leading to Patong Beach. The place is surprisingly large, clean and very well organized.
HOW TO TOUCH THEM
Our Big Cats are handled, stroked and petted on a daily basis, so even the roughest of petting will not bother these Big Cats. It’s normal to them and that is why our cats are so relax when you play with them.
If you gently stroke the cats,it will feel ticklish and irritated,especially to a sleeping tiger. The best method is to cuddle and stroke the cat firmly to make it feel comfortable.
Baby Tiger are playful and likely to play with you. Sometime when playing it tend to be a bit rough or bite, so do be careful when handle with them.
