History and Origins

The Korat cat, a symbol of good fortune in its native Thailand, is one of the oldest and purest breeds. Named after the Korat province in northeast Thailand, these cats are celebrated in Thai culture as bringers of luck, prosperity, and long life. Depictions and descriptions of the Korat can be traced back to the "Tamra Maew" or "Cat-Book Poems" believed to have been written in the Ayutthaya Kingdom between the 14th and 18th centuries. Unlike breeds that have been developed through selective breeding, the Korat's appearance has remained largely unchanged for centuries, a testament to its natural heritage and enduring appeal.

Personality

Korat cats are renowned for their loving and gentle disposition, often forming a strong emotional bond with their owners. They are known to be particularly sensitive to their human companions' feelings, offering comfort with their presence. Despite their serene nature, Korats are playful and enjoy interactive games, demonstrating intelligence and curiosity. Their vocalizations are soft but expressive, communicating their needs and desires in a melodious tone. The Korat's loyalty and affectionate behavior make them excellent companions for those who appreciate a close bond with their pets.

Nutrition and Feeding

A balanced diet is essential for maintaining the health and vitality of a Korat cat. High-quality cat food rich in protein supports their lean muscle mass and energy levels. Due to their moderate activity level, it's important to monitor portion sizes to prevent obesity. Providing both wet and dry food can help meet their nutritional needs and ensure proper hydration. Regular meal times and fresh, clean water available at all times are important for their overall well-being.

Grooming and Care

The Korat's short, single-layered coat is relatively easy to care for. Their distinctive silver-blue fur requires minimal grooming; a weekly brush is sufficient to remove loose hair and maintain the coat's natural sheen. Korats lack an undercoat, which minimizes shedding and makes them somewhat hypoallergenic. Besides coat care, routine nail trimming, ear cleaning, and dental hygiene are important to keep your Korat healthy and comfortable.

Specific Needs

Korats thrive in environments where they receive ample attention and affection. They do best in calm households where they can be close to their human families. Due to their strong bonding tendencies, Korats may not adapt well to being left alone for long periods. Providing a safe, engaging space with toys and climbing opportunities can help keep them entertained and stimulated. Regular veterinary check-ups are crucial to address any health concerns early.

Training

Korats are intelligent and can be responsive to training with the right approach. Positive reinforcement techniques, such as treats and praise, are effective in teaching them desired behaviors and tricks. Early socialization is beneficial, exposing them to different people, environments, and situations to foster a well-adjusted and confident cat. Their agile nature and keen intelligence make them quick learners who enjoy interactive play and mental challenges.

Need to Know

Prospective Korat cat owners should be aware of the breed's need for companionship and interactive engagement. Understanding their grooming needs, dietary requirements, and providing a nurturing environment are key to their care. Korats are well-suited to families and individuals seeking a deeply bonded pet relationship. With proper care and attention, Korats make loving, loyal, and joyful additions to any home, embodying the grace and tranquility of their ancient lineage.

Adopting our new kitten from Purebred Kitties was a wonderful experience. The process was smooth and clear, leaving no room for confusion. Alona's kindness and genuine care shone through as she promptly answered all my questions. Thanks to the whole team, our new furry family member is now home and already cherished beyond words!

Purebredkitties has been absolutely wonderful. They made everything so easy and stress-free. Adoption specialist Kim A was fantastic, always going the extra mile to help me. She even responded to my email at 3 am her time! 😊 This whole experience has been truly heartwarming and rewarding.

Our experience with Purebredkitties was wonderful! Communication was great, and we even got to FaceTime with our kitten before bringing her home. She was exactly as we expected and is already doing great with our family after just two days. One small note is that pedigree papers weren't included and cost extra, which was a bit pricey since she arrived spayed. Overall, even though it was expensive, it was worth it. The quality and size of our kitten are amazing!

The whole experience of adopting a pet with this fantastic team has been nothing short of wonderful. Now, I have the joy of being a devoted pet mom to a gorgeous kitten I named Princess. I'm already looking forward to adopting another fur baby with Maria's help in the future. I'm absolutely thrilled and can't thank you all enough!

Proud mom of four Sphynx kitties! I adopted all of my adorable feline friends from Maria at purebredkitties.com, and I couldn’t be happier. Each one is a treasure, and working with Maria has been an absolute delight!

The whole journey to bring our fluffy bundle of joy home was fantastic. Maria is incredibly kind and always ready to answer all our questions. I really appreciate how seriously they take the health of the cats. Our kitten arrived with a minor case of the sniffles, likely from the airport travel, but it was easily and quickly resolved. Plus, the video call we had to meet our little guy beforehand was a wonderful way to get a glimpse of his personality and feel confident in our decision. I'm definitely recommending Purebred Kitties to all my friends who are looking to get their own Maine Coon.

I recently welcomed my second Sphynx from Purebred Kitties, and just like my first experience, everything went perfectly. This time around was just as smooth and delightful. I adore both of my cats—they're healthy, have amazing personalities, and are absolutely precious.
