Korat Cats & Korat Cat Breeders
Korats are a slate blue-grey short-haired pedigree cat with a small to medium build and surprisingly heavy for their size. They are intelligent, playful cats and form strong bonds with people.
Among Korats' distinguishing characteristics are their heart-shaped heads and large green eyes. They are one of a few breeds where individuals have only one color.
The Korat is a natural breed, and one of the oldest stable cat breeds. Korats originate in Thailand, and are known colloquially as the "good luck cat" and are given in pairs to newlyweds or to people who are highly esteemed, for good luck. Until recently, Korats were not sold, but only given as gifts.
The modern Korats now exist due to the diligent efforts of a few breeders inside and outside of Thailand.
