The Korat cat is a medium-weight shorthaired cat. It is also called Si-Sawat, which consists of the Thai words si and sawat “good luck cat”.
The name Korat comes from the region in northeast Thailand where the cats thought to have originated. The silver cats with the green eyes date back to the 14th century based on their depiction in literature. Korats were favourite gifts and had a particular purpose when given to brides because of their connection with prosperity and fertility.
They are incredibly loyal to their owners. As a result, they give their full love and high respect. The cat is either going 100 km/h or is in “slow motion” mode. The cat wants to be with you, near you and helping you all the time.
The Korat is a “unique” breed that has yet to be found by many.
