I’ll buy one when I have my home!
The Korat has a sweet nature with all the natural instincts untouched. They will try to win the top of hierarchy, but if they do not feel that this position is threatened the Korat is an active, charming, mild and very trusting cat, with its very personal way of seeing the world – everything revolves around it!
The true Korat temperament is a mild cat with a will of iron! A Korat is not afraid of anything – is convinced that it may do anything it has not previously been told not to – adapts quite easily to new situations – has a good self confidence – its feeling of self worth is not impaired in any way – has its own opinion about the people who come to the house. In spite of this very independent character a Korat is easy to train with love and firmness.
The ‘sex-drive’ of the Korat is very strong. It is recommended to neuter cats you are not using for breeding. On the other hand, the Korat is very good at birthing and taking care of its young. The females can easily give birth on their own, but appreciate the moral support of (at least one of) their humans. A Korat mother thinks of her kittens first when it comes to food and attention – when the kittens have had their fill, she will take what is left! She keeps an eye that nothing happens to her kittens, but had complete faith that her humans will take good care of them!
In all ages the Korat has a special way of bonding with its family. Humans are very important to them. But Korats tend to prefer their own kind and thrive best in homes without too many different breeds. A Korat will greet you at the door, where you sit, sleep along side you or on top of you. It will not let you out of sight but will follow you in everything you do. Because of their unique bonding skills Korats are ideal pets. The curiosity of the Korat and need to be close to its owner does that you have to be careful that it does not ‘shoot’ out the door or an open window when one is in the garden. The Korat is very fast, quiet and sleek – sometimes even a bit manipulative….
