The Korat or Si-Sawat cat (see-sa-what) as the Thai people call them are medium sized cats weighing 6-10 pounds (2.7-4.6 kg). They are muscular slightly cobby cats with large peridot green eyes. They are slow to mature taking up to five years. Their eyes slowly change from a yellow green to peridot green over 2-4 years.
The Korat cat coat is a single layer, with no undercoat that makes them easy to groom. They have a heart shaped head.
Korat cats have a lifespan of 10-15 years.
Korat cats are constant loving companions that often attach particularly strongly to one or two people in the family. These intelligent cats were often given in pairs, because of this strong need for companionship.
Korat cats are known for walking on a leash, playing fetch, and learning tricks. They are energetic cats, but not hyper. This cat will definitely let you know what he is thinking with a variety of different sounds.
Other: Korat cats were described in a book of poems in Thailand going back at least since 1700, in which they were described as one of seventeen lucky cats.
This breed is recognized by all major organizations.
