About The Korat The Korat (pronounced ko-RAHT, not KO-rat) is a small cat known for its sleek, silvery blue coat, heart-shaped face, and prominent peridot green eyes. They are a slow-maturing breed, and don't reach full size until they are 4-5 years old. Korats originated in Thailand, where they are regarded as "good luck" or "si-sawat" cats.
Korats are playful and devoted, and like to think they're in charge of everything and everyone, including "their" humans and all other pets. They are somewhat clannish and prefer the company of their own kind, and some care needs to be taken mixing them in households with other cats (they generally do fine with dogs). An "only Korat" may do fine, but two Korats in the same household as a non-Korat cat may gang up on the "outsider". That said, Korats do not like being left alone and should have both human and animal company.
Did You Know? In Thailand, Korats were never sold. They were given away as gifts only to the most favored family and friends.
