Short description

The Korat is a suitable indoor cat, but still needs a lot of space and possibilities to climb. If you do not engage her in different activities, she can develop unwanted beavior. She likes a calm environment, but nevertheless, would prefer a home with more cats as she is very social. Although she is very calm, she also likes wild games. Be careful with little children, becuase she can also use her claws when she feels mistreated.
