The Korat Cat Breed

Known for hundreds of years in its native Thailand (Siam) as the Si-Swat, the Korat even in Thailand is rare and are prized for their beauty and reputed power to bring good luck.

There is no registration record of Korats until 1959 when a Bangkok breeder sold a pair to the United States. A breed club was formed to protect and develop the breed, as well as to preserve its heritage. A standard was written based on the appearance of the original native cats and by 1969 most North American associations had given championship status to the Korat.

Certainly, they are unique, with a heart shaped face, set off by huge luminous green eyes and tall ears. The coat is glossy, short to medium in length and close-lying, of a silver-blue color tipped with silver giving a halo effect.

The muscular, semi-cobby body has the feeling of hard-coiled spring power.

Korats make intelligent and loving pets. They have sweet, gentle dispositions and pretty, rather quiet voices. They form exceptionally strong attachments towards their owner, and prefer a quiet one-cat home amongst calm, soft-voiced humans.
