Short description

The Khao Manee, which translates to "white gem"", is a very balanced and human-oriented cat, that likes to live in a home with other cats. Because she does not like to be left alone, she needs a lot of attention and devotion from her family. Owners should offer her many opportunities to play and challenge her mentally as well. "
