In Thailand, people enjoy watermelons to cool off just like anyone else in the world. The difference is that if you go to the right part of Thailand, you may find a white cat named Pearl guarding the watermelons.

Pearl keeps an eye on the watermelons while they’re stacked to make sure no one grabs one without paying for it first. If the thought of stealing a watermelon sounds tempting, just imagine the scratches you’ll get if Pearl catches you trying to take one illegally.
