My main purpose in breeding Korats is the future and survival of the Korat breed. I'm very interested in population genetics and have a large database of pedigrees. I try to do my best to keep myself informed about the latest knowlegde and research about cat health and genetics. My cattery is small and my cats live with me in my apartment. I don't normally give away the cats after neutering, because they are my family members. As I cannot keep a large amount of breeding cats I try to work closely with other breeders. I firmly believe in the benefits of sharing information so I want to be open about all the aspects on my breeding. Feel free to ask about anything. I don't mind sharing information about pedigrees or the health problems of my cats or Korats in general.


The kittens must be at least 14 weeks old when they move to their new homes. Often the actual delivery is a bit later, because I want to be sure that their vaccination program is completed before the delivery. I don't mind keeping a kitten longer, if it's more convenient for the kitten or the buyer.


The normal price of a Korat kitten is 800 euros. This includes registration, two or 3 vaccinations, microchipping and transfer certificate if necessary. If there are additional costs like rabies vaccination or travelling costs these may be added to the price.


I always use written sales agreements that state the rights and responsibilities of both the buyer and the breeder. With the kitten you will get:

  • Sales contract
  • Official pedigree
  • Microchip number
  • Vaccination certificates
  • Health certificate from a vet
  • FeLV & FIV-certicates of the parents
  • Proof that the kitten is free of GM
  • Certificates of DNA-tests for recessive colours if the cat is meant for breeding and there is a risk that it's a carrier.
  • Written instructions on feeding and care


    I cannot guarantee lifelong health for my kittens. When dealing with live animals anything can happen. I do my best to avoid genetic problems and diseases, by using DNA testing when available, by checking the health of the parents and by avoiding inbreeding. If a kitten gets sick, I will compensate for the purchase if the kitten probably got an infectious disease from my cattery or if a genetic component is probable. You may get a new kitten or I might return some or all of the kitten price. This depends on how long the kitten has been in the new home and how severe the heath problem is.

    In general Korats are healthy and live long lives. There are few health problems I have encountered in my breeding. Korats have a genetic disease called gangliosidosis (GM). The carriers of GM can be detected by a DNA-test. If two carriers are not mated, there is no danger of kittens being affected. Most of the breeding stock in the world is already tested and found negative for GM. I will provide proof to kitten buyers that my kittens cannot be affected by this disease. Korats in some of my lines also seem to have a tendency to develop asthma. This usually affects older cats, so it is difficult to take into account when choosing breeding stock. Asthma may be inherited, but it has a very complex mode of inheritance just like allergies. Asthma is quite treatable and usually does not shorten the cat's lifespan if it is diagnosed early. If any of my kittens gets asthmatic symptoms, I hope the owner will contact me for advice on treatment and for breeding purposes. Other things that I have had in my Korats are arthritis, diabetes and kidney failure, which are not uncommon in older cats in general.

    A cat's health highly depends on it's living conditions. The owner should take care of vaccinations and deworming regularly and have the cat checked yearly by a veterinarian. Any teeth or gum problems should be taken care of. Also the cat's diet should be suitable for it. Overweight subjects a cat to many kinds of health problems. When purchasing a kitten you get intructions for feeding, but it is sometimes necessary to change the diet when the kitten matures to maintain perfect health. Don't hesitate to contact the breeder for advice! I have an open mind about feeding, raw or commercial, whatever suits the cat's and the owner's situation.


    I cannot guarantee future show success of my kittens. Show success depends on many things: the cat's show temperament, type, coat quality and colour, eye colour etc. Some of these features develope slowly in Korats. I also prefer the cat to be a family member and a loved pet first. If the cat is shown, this is nice, but show success should not be the main purpose of purchasing a cat. I am rather experienced in assessing the potential of kittens, so I can usually tell if the kitten has good potential to develop into a beautiful Korat. I also do guarantee that the kittens sold as show quality don't have white spotting, clear tail fault, abnormal bite or other defects that would prevent it from getting a certificate in a FIFe show. If something like this later appeared in a kitten the buyer would be compensated.


    Normally I do not export pet kittens to distant parts of the world. I do not want to subject the kitten to all the extra stress of air travel and also I like to offer support to my kitten buyers throughout the cat's life and this may be difficult over long distances. I also want to meet all kitten buyers personally, which might be difficult to arrange. I suggest that you first try to find breeders closer to you, and I will be happy to help with my contacts. There's a list of breeders worldwide available at:


    I only export kittens for breeding after careful consideration. Normally you should be an established breeder that I have been in contact for some time. If you are a new breeder you should have a mentor that can recommend you or we should be in contact over some time to work things out. This does not mean that I do not trust people or that I don't want new breeders to start working on our breed. Korat breeding requires persistency and dedication. This is a very small breed so it may be difficult to find partners with a suitable pedigree. Outcrossing Korats to other breeds is not accepted. All Korats must be descendants of original Thai cats. Also we have some genes that should be avoided and DNA testing may be required in breeding. I also want to be sure that cats from my breeding are only used to breed officially registered Korats. I do not want to support “backyard breeding”. If I decide to export a kitten to a breeder, I also want it to be the best quality or have an exceptionally good pedigree, so you may need to wait for some time.
