The aspect of the Korat
remained practically invariato during the course of the centuries.
The description of the ancient manuscript perfectly wearing to the
Korat of the days ours. This race has crossed the centuries without
to never endure interferences and the only one perhaps not to have
been coupled with others breeds. Its morphology remained immutata for
all this time perhaps thanks to the isolation of the region in which
developed and to the distance of those lands, and today extremely
important, for who it raises them, to conserve this important
characteristic of unicit and purity.
"... Its soft hair, the

One of the important devout
characteristics of this race the shape of the head. Sight of

the Korat are sproporzionati regarding the head. They must be

To raise the Korat perhaps
still devout impegnativo because of the character, not just to the
capacity of all, this race.
The females usually go in
heat rather soon (around to the 5-6 months) and theirs vocalize are
truly worthy of famous. The males can become fertile also to 6

HYGIENE And BEAUTY
The condition of the hair a
fundamental pointer in order to not only appreciate the beauty of a
cat, but also in order to characterize of its state of health.
Naturally not sufficient to have cure of the hair to outer level for
being sure of the well-being of just the cat. It must also feed it
in corrected way, sottoporlo to visits veterinaries of control to

possible one avoiding stress to which also they, often, are
But returning to the cure
and the hygiene, the Korat cats, being to short hair, do not have
need of particular aesthetic sagacities or particular products.
Sufficient Sar the use of a cloth of humid fallow deer once to the
day in order to remove from the cape the powder that to unavoidablly
is hidden you and, if necessary, potr to use a tight tooth comb in
order to melt eventual small nodes or to remove of the dead hair.

Next to the rest they with a careful and methodical cure think.
For being able to wash it
sar necessary to accustom it from much small. It does not love the
water, even if it passes hours to play with the drops that exit from
the tap, and therefore if prover to dip it without avergli before
made to make a little practical, to make us sure to remember to have
to us tried...
I would begin endured
saying that the Korat not adapted to all. She knows to adapt to all
the inhabited situations, this, but she develops a strong tie with
just the landladies and if these do not succeed to understand of the
requirements and the particolarit, not sar easy life for the two.
The Korat has a character a
lot dominant and stretches to submit anyone, animal or person, to
the own wishes. An attitude from tyrannous small that goes therefore
educated from one person from the determined character.
The master of a Korat must
succeed at par to having with this animal a relationship, of mutual
respect and confidence.
Cos the tender devout
aspects of these cats will only be able to come in surface and they
will be able totally to be appreciated.
The master of a Korat does
not have to leave it single in order time too much. Rather he would
be preferibile to carry it with s. The Korat does not have problems
to travel and sopportano easily also long travels in car or

Online general the Korat
has a character much fort. A cat without fear, a cat that nearly
puts to uneasiness with some its attitudes. E' much independent one,
and does not love conditionings or impositions.
It adores to play with the
children and with other animals purch it is granted to it of having
the last word. Curious E', much intelligent one until the point to
learn to copy the human behaviors, above all those that can be
revealed useful... E' much difficult one that a Korat you pull
outside the claws in order to assault. Neanche when it is found in
particularly delicate situations. It prefers to face eventual
problems sfoderando vocalizes mozzafiato and with of the movements
that remember so much those of the martial limbs it orients them.
But also and above all a
cat extremely giocherellone, also from adult or ahead with ET, much
clever one and loves to drive crazy to make jokes and trabocchetti
it is to other animals that to the persons. Lively and chiacchierone
but not nagging. Much easy one to understand when what wants one.
Its vocalize and its posture are extremely eloquent.
There are, however, of
reading differences between the character of the males and that one
of the females.
The females, are sterilized
that integral, they are a po' devout independent and enterprising of
the males. They adore to undertake true and own games of force with
the master. They will come from you when they want it very rarely
and when glielo you will ask. They will be threaded by force, and
secretly, under your blankets, they will open the drawers of all
house, in order it even makes a joke you, and they will make to find
the television you or the light ignited to yours I re-enter... Then
they will watch like saying "who to you, I..."
The males are instead
devout calm and affable, above all if he castrates to you. They will
not pull themselves to one good dose of coccole never GO BACK TO LIST. They
are of the incurable ones giocherelloni, but they do not have the
malizia of the females, cos that it becomes extremely pleasant and
relaxant to play with they. Like the females, they are much delicate
in playing and much difficult one that they break off of the objects
for house. They could trotterellare between tens of ninnoli of china
or crystal without not to graze of one!
The Korat is, reassuming,
of the fascinating cats and winning. Anyone has possessed some or it
possesses one, it considers it only and irreplaceable. A true feline
from the reduced dimensions that it has, for the greater part,
conserved several of the characterial features of the wild cats us,
sweetened, com' natural, from centuries of cohabitation and mutual
respect with who has known them to appreciate.
