Korat

Well it’s Saturday and it’s the beginning of the new featured breed today!! Many people have asked me if Babyboy is a Russian Blue. I’d like to say yes he is lol but he is not. I don’t know exactly what breed he is but I did do some research on it. He’s certainly not a full breed but he is very close to the Korat! His body build, fur, facial features, ears and tail as well as color of fur are so close to the Korat breed that if he didn’t have that white spot on his chest he could certainly pass as a Korat. A little history on the Korat (courtesy of wikipedia) The Korat is a natural breed, and one of the oldest stable cat breeds. Originating in Thailand, it is named after the Nakhon Ratchasima province (typically called “Korat” by the Thai people). In Thailand the breed is known as Si-Sawat, meaning “color of the sawat seed”.[1] They are known colloquially as the “good luck cat” and are given in pairs to newlyweds or to people who are highly esteemed, for good luck. Until recently, Korats were not sold, but only given as gifts  korat006

  1. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that.

  2. Penso che sia il fattore di anonimato. Un lettore normale si sente come una parte di una comunità, e quindi, anche se non sono d’accordo, sarebbero più inclini a farlo civilmente.

  3. Gracias por su maravillosa publicación! Yo realmente disfruté de leerlo, usted podría ser un gran author.I se recuerde marcar tu blog y, finalmente, volver algún día. Quiero animar a que continúe su buena escritura, que tengas un buen día!
