MISTYBLUE CATTERY (TICA).
The silver-blue cat with the Thai passport.
The eyes of the korat are like those of no other cat...as sparkling as
the 'dewdrops on a lotus leaf'. As newborn kittens the eyes are blue,
changing to amber with a green tinge around the pupil during
adolescence, and then, when the cat reaches two to four years, the eyes
are luminous green.
The roots of the hair are a
light bluish color, darkening before the ends become silver-tipped.
Korats are silver blue from their first day to their last; a cat of any
other color is not a Korat. Their coats consist of one layer, without
an undercoat and is soft and close-lying.
Korats form an exceptionally
strong bond of affection with their owners and respond warmly to
cuddling. Korats are gentle pets, moving softly and cautiously,
disliking sudden, loud or harsh noises.
Korats are considered a symbol
of good luck by the Thais because according to the Thai tradition they
are the color of silver, signifying wealth; they are the color of rain
clouds and with eyes the color of young rice, meaning good crops. The
gift of a pair of Si-Sawat cats to the bride ensures a fortunate
are some pictures and information about our Korats.

||Picture of Anakin and Balki taken on 25 march 2013. Anakin is Casey's boy born on 23 december 2012, he is a little pistol, growing and getting into everything, a typical Korat kitten. On this picture he is helping Balki get through the tree house tunnel, "come on you can do it, here's a little push."
Here is Anakin, ready to pounce on one of the adult cats. Being an only kitten in the litter he plays with the adult cats, and also the only dog. Cats make do with what they have. This pic was snapped on 3-25-13. Our beautiful bad, sweet, loveable, feisty, playful boy.
|| A picture of Casey with her handsome boy, they were grooming each other, getting ready for a nap.
A picture of the latest addition to our Cattery here at Mistyblue. She is from Maleza Cattery and was born on 25 Sept. 2010. Her registered name is Maleza Galena of Mistyblue and her everyday name is Casey. She is a typical Korat kitten, into everything but also so very sweet when she looks at me and gives me that little tiny "meow". She likes attention from her human family, likes to be held, when she chooses to be held, and brings back her toy to be thrown again and again, she loves chasing after it. This pic was snapped on 5 Feb 2011.

|| Another picture of the new girl with our own SGC Mistyblue Artemis. They are getting along now, at first we heard some hissing and growling but that was expected, bringing a new little one into the house. The kitten's papa is CH Skarraghbrae J.A.T.O. of Maleza and her mama is CH Maleza Blue Sea Atea.
Here is an updated picture of Mistyblue Artemis taken on 5 Feb 2011 at the Reading, PA cat show. Artemis is our most laid back Korat, she is not an outgoing girl at the shows, she would rather be home. She's sweet, gets along with the other kitties in our house.
Artemis did not care for the photo session, unlike her friend, Galena, who was a little ham.

A photo of Casey taken by the Animal Planet photographer at the Central New Jersey TICA show in January 2012. "The AnimalPlanet.com website is currently under a complete redesign, so you will not see your cats on our website until later in June/July". I do not know if Animal Planet will use this photo of Casey, they did two settings, first time she was too active, so will wait and see which photo they use. This is the one I chose for my free photo for them taking the pictures of Casey for their website. I want to thank Animal Planet for this beautiful photo of my little girl and I am honored she will represent the Korat breed on their site.

|Here we see a picture of our Mistyblue Niobe aka Whimsy with her litter of one. This boy was born on 11 March 2011. He is a typical little Korat kitten except no sibs to play with. He seems like he will be a laid back guy and a very handsome one at that. This pic was taken on 13 April 2011. Niobe is very protective of her boy and just as proud as she can be. Papa is Mistyblue Niran of Koratopia.
|| Here is our handsome Korat boy as an adult. He is RW QGCA Mistyblue Balki, The International Cat Association's Best Korat Alter of The Year for 2012. RW QGCA Balki is also Eighteenth Best Alter of the Year 2012 in the Mid Atlantic Region. Balki is a delight to have in our home, loves to play, loves his people, he is a wonderful companion. Niobe can certainly be a proud mama.
