The Korat is a natural breed, originating in Thailand, where it is known as the "good luck cat". Traditionally and until recently, they were never sold, but only given as gifts. The Korat cat is silver blue-grey in color with short hair and a small to medium, muscular body. The breed has a heart-shaped head and large green eyes.
Korat cats are known to be intelligent and playful. They reportedly crave affection from humans and form strong bonds with people.
