#18 Korat – $600-700
Depictions of the Korat date all the way back to the 13th century. It’s known as the “good luck” breed in Korea, though more of these cats are registered in the U.S. then anywhere else in the world. Just like those almond-shaped emerald eyes and muscular build, the Korat’s complex personality remains unchanged throughout the centuries.
As kittens, they follow their owners everywhere but shy away from other people and animals. At the age of 12-18 months, these short-haired, majestic cats start to be more territorial then most dogs. They also enjoy spending time outdoors and often exhibit primal hunting instincts. This phase usually lasts for about two years, until the feline reaches maturity. After that, Korats become loyal and affectionate – the perfect “lap cat” breed.
