In their native Thailand, the Korat — another of the three breeds that come in only blue — are considered good luck.
“In earlier times, their blue coat reminded people of thunder clouds, and they were often walked around fields in rainmaking ceremonies,” says Keiger. “Thai people held these cats in high regard, and they were often given for good luck.”
An athletic cat with a very muscular body, their coat is pale at the root, shading to an even grey at the ends. The hair shaft is luminous, reflecting the light in an even glow.
“Their head is made of a series of heart shapes,” Keiger says. “The outer portion of the head, including the ears, the head itself, then across the brow ridge, and the tip of the nose. You will even see a heart shape in the cat’s chest area.”
This talkative breed enjoys people and loves their owners.
