A verse on the Korat reads:
The hairs are smooth with roots
like clouds and tips like silver.
The eyes shine like dewdrops on
a lotus leaf.
The Korat is of medium size, muscular and athletic body. They are very like the Russian Blue in appearance, but have a single rather than a double coat, are more rounded in shape and have peridot green rather than emerald eyes. Females are daintier than the males.
The Korat has a quiet, sweet nature but is very intelligent and playful. They make ideal household pets and can be devoted to their human companions. They get on extremely well with children but do prefer a quiet home as opposed to an unruly household.
