WW99 WW00 EC EP Primprau's Meo Hao

The Korat is a native of Thailand, and has been revered in that country for centuries. Their bluish-silver color examplifies the exalted stature they demand, so it is no wonder they are considered a symbol of good fortune by the Thais.

Consider yourself of equal good fortune if you find yourself "owned" by a Korat. They will reward you with years of affection, loyalty, and love.

Breed Brief:

Body: Semi cobby, with a distinctive torso. Muscular and supple, while being neither compact nor svelte.

Breeder Camilla Baird, Primprau's Korats, owner: Donatella Mastrangelo, Jadeye Korats).The photo of "Meo" was used with permission, and her breeder describes her perfectly: "Meo is a unique Korat in many ways. She is the first Korat to achieve the prestigious title FIFE World Winner - and she did it two years in a row!

Meo has a very strong personality which radiates from any pictures of her. She is a beautiful cat - large round *green* eyes, beautiful short close-lying *silvertipped* coat - these are all requirements for show quality Korats, but in Meo all these elements combine in a uniquely stunning way!"
