Korat Cat Personality

The Korat cat is amongst the most engaging and intelligent of all cat breeds. A Korat has a sense of its own place in the world. It will often adopt one person whom it bonds with great strength. I have been fortunate to be such a person — a remarkable experience and privilege. The Korat is also highly inquisitive and aware of every tiny thing around. Move an ornament and when a Korat enters the room it will notice the change in an instant. The Korat cat personality is truly special.

The Korat Cat

The Korat greatly enjoys human contact and handling. When visitors come to the house they will become highly involved and will probably try out different laps for comfort. Also, though very gentle, a Korat will often play with children. Having had enough, it will return to its favored lap for a rest.

Korats make a remarkable range of sounds. Talking with you is one of their favorite activities. Do not even consider having a Korat if you are not prepared to have lengthy conversations. A Korat may also insist in sleeping in bed with you. My own, Hattie, always slept back-to-back with me. She was tiny and I am over six foot tall.

Korat cat personality includes remarkable intelligence. Cheryl Coleman tells the story:

My first Korat knew how to change the radio to the station she liked. We’d set it in the morning to one station, and when we got home it was on “light jazz.” After the second time, we left it on the jazz station and it stayed on that channel. So, when she birthed her kittens she had the music SHE liked!

Sounds extraordinary? Having lived with a Korat–I would never say owned–I believe this. Hattie would regularly wake me up by jumping off a chest of drawers beside the bed onto my head. Mirrors obsessed her. She would look at the reflection of herself for hours – something that only primates are supposed to do.

Korat Cat Personality: see them in action

Korats have a written history documented from the 13th Century. They are remarkably little changed over the years. They are also cherished with an almost mystical fervor in their home country and considered  good luck. The Korat Cat personality is much in keeping with its ancient origin.

  1. I too have been one of the chosen ones these extraordinary and unforgettable cats claimed as their own. I recently lost my little lady very suddenly and the whole atmosphere of the household has changed, no more little squeaks to wake me up in the morning….and those cuddles…….it truly was a priviledge

  2. Jo B . . . so sorry for your loss – I know you were blessed during the years you were so loved and adored.
