The Korat breed comes from Thailand where it is also known as SiSawat. In Thailand the Korat cat is considered very good luck and for many years could only be given as a gift to someone who was deemed worthy. In Thailand cats and dogs are rarely kept as pets. Instead, they roam the streets scavenging for food. Purebred cats and dogs are very rare so importation of Korats from Thailand is extremely difficult. Korats were first brought to Australia in 1969 and the breed remains rare around the world.
