Thailand is home to a unique race of cats with very distinctive looks. The most common Thai cats found in the west are Burmese cats, Siamese Cats, and Tonkinese cats. But, there are many types of cats in Thailand, beyond these.
In Thailand, Burmese cats, Siamese Cats, and Tonkinese cats, and all the other colors found there, one breed. Depending on their color, they are called by different names, Wichienmaat (Siamese), Thong Daeng (Burmese ), Suphalak, or Korat, etc. These names simply indicate the color of the cat. These beautiful cats comes in a kaleidoscope of color, black, brown, pointed, tan, tortoise shell, white, and everything in between. Their eyes can be yellow, green, or blue.
Truly, the hallmark of these cats is their extraordinary personality. They are best described as COGS, dog like cats. They are a dog minus the walk. Indeed, they go for walks, ride in the car, play fetch, will take the elevator to go with you to collect the mail, and are hopelessly obsessed with their owner. In this way, they are most unlike the aloof European cat. Anyone who has had a cat of Thai descent will tell you, if you want a companion, get one of these cats. They provide the best pets services around.
