Kuching White Cat ready for Gawai 2024

White Cat decorated with Dayak gear ahead of Gawai celebrations

To mark the festivities of Gawai Dayak, the famous Kuching White Cat statue at Jalan padungan is now donning the traditional Dayak costume for 2024

This years decoration was made posible by the Council of the City Kuching South (MBKS) in collaboration with Sar-Alam Indah (SAI), resulting in recycled materials used to create the festive decorations.

According to the plaque on location, the eco-friendly decorations were also made using used tires.

Such move by both MBKS and Sar-Alam is to reflect both organisations commitment towards celebrating festivals in a more environmentally responsible manner that supports sustainable community.

The White Cat is often used to showcase major celebrations and events in Kuching as MBKS takes the lead to change the cat’s dressing every now and then to highlight such events.
