Korat Cat Personality
Korats are not as vocal as their Siamese comrades; they have other ways of getting their wishes across. At dinnertime they'll wrap themselves around your ankle, clamber up onto your shoulder, and perhaps give you a nip on the shin if you don't hurry up with the cat food, but given something important to say, they speak their minds.
On the cat activity level scale, they are an 8: social, playful, and full of life, but not bouncing-off-the-walls hyper. They are also reported to possess high intelligence.
Like the Siamese, Korats are fetchers of tossed toys, cats whose favorite game is the one in which you take an active part. Korats crave affection from their humans, and will scheme to gain possession of your lap, your arms, and your heart.
Korat Cat Breed Traits
Coat and color, as well as a muscular and semi-cobby body type, set this breed apart. The coat is a solid, even, silver-blue color with no tabby markings or shading, but the hair shafts themselves are lighter at the roots and shade to a darker blue just before the tips. The fur is tipped with silver, giving a silvery sheen or 'halo effect' to the coat. The Korat goes through an 'ugly duckling' phase and doesn't attain its true beauty until two to four years of age. The eye color is not usually true until the cat matures.
