The Korat Cat

Author: Ailurophile

Korat is amongst the oldest and the few natural cat breeds around currently. It traces its origin to the land of Siam, or Thailand, many centuries ago. There it has been revered for a long time and is considered an emblem of good luck. It is known as Si-Sawat cat in the native language. Korat was brought over to the western countries by the end of nineteenth century. However it was not until the beginning of later half of twentieth century that Korat was formally introduced as a breed in United States and United Kingdom.

A medium sized feline, Korat is surprisingly heavy for its size. It packs a lot of energy in its muscular, somewhat stout physique. Coat is single layered and seldom sheds or tangles. It occurs in a uniform bluish silver color and is not seen in any other color or pattern. Hair are bluish at base and become tipped with silver, giving rise to a unique glow from the shiny fur. Head is famous for its 'heart-like' shape, with beautiful amber eyes that become brighter as the cat ages.

Korats are greatly valued in their land of origin. They are seldom commercially sold and are given the status of a national treasure by Thai government. They are therefore very hard to import from Thailand and as a result quite rare in most parts of the globe.

Gentle and sweet cats, Korats are well suited to a house with other pets and children. They are quiet and not overly demanding. Korats have very well developed senses and are startled by sudden loud noises. They are alert and active cats and take little time in developing strong bonds of affection with their humans. Cuddly and adoring felines, Korats are very people-oriented and enjoy company of their owners very much.

I have eleven cats now and two of them are supposedly "Korat" cats... so my neighbors tell me.  Nevertheless, all of them are utterly useless...all they do is eat, pee, sleep, sh>it and F>ck.  Yesterday I had a snake in my yard.ngu gap pha..otherwise known as a viper.  Scared the living crap out of me... the cats were just staring at it. This was the first time I had ever seen a snake in my yard.  I asked the neighbor to come over to help me get it out of the yard.. He brought over this huge wooden pole and bashed the living crap out of the serpent.  We put it in a bag and I stuck it in one of my trash cans.  Today the trash truck made it's usual pickup.. I can only imagine their reaction seeing that snake in the bin lol.  Seriously though...I'm fortunate my son wasn't wandering around the front yard because he could have easily been bitten.  These snakes are dangerous.

I should imagine it has already been cooked and eaten :)
One time we had a 10 wheel truck on a job to clear some land, the staff killed a 1 meter long Thai cobra, for a laugh they shoved it down the exhaust pipe of the truck, end of the day we are all standing behind the truck sorting stuff out and the truck driver starts the engine, out shot the poxy cobra, that got everyone moving :)
