I mean this is hands down one of the prettiest cats I have ever seen.

Due to him having a fungal infection.

She took a few before pictures, and we're glad she did.

The medicinal herb is fantastic at treating infections.

And saves more than a few dollars on vet bills.

Supamas experimented with a turmeric scrub to see if it would help clear her cat's infection.

Before moving on to more expensive treatments.

And it seemed to have worked.

Although as you can see, the bright yellow stain seemed to have ruined her cat in the process.

And this is the result:

One user commented that the cat looks like Pikachu.

And since then, the pictures have grown in popularity.

The owner decided to photoshop Pikachu features onto her cat...

...And post them on Facebook.

I have to admit it's kind of cute.

Even though I do feel kind of sorry for her.

She doesn't seem too bothered by the dye-job.

And if anything, Supamas doesn't need to worry about losing her cat now.

She seems to be getting used to her new color.

And her leg is healing nicely.

She actually seems pretty chilled about the whole experience.

We're just glad she's feeling better.

Let's just hope it washes out soon.
