F.I.Fe. Korat Standard

catgif2.6.3 KOR (Korat)

The FIFe shall not recognize any other colour variety than blue in the Korat.

The FIFe will not encourage any person or federation to produce colours other than blue in the Korat.

When breeding Korats:

  • only blue KOR shall be used, and only blue offspring from blue KOR parents can be registered as Korat (KOR).
  • Offspring in a colour variety other than blue shall be registered as XSH/XLH.

When breeding Korat:

  • Korat cats used in breeding must have a DNA-test for GM, unless both parents are proven to be free from GM.
  • These breeding principles are to be followed:
    • GM-free x GM-free
    • Non-carrier x carrier – provided that all offspring are GM-tested.
  • If a desired mating is not completely covered by points above, the National Breeding Council mustapprove such a mating in advance after having received a well-founded application. The BreedingCouncil states all conditions if the application is granted.
  • The cats that will need to be tested according to this rule must be identifiable by microchip or by tattoo.
  • The seller must inform buyers of Korat cats about the GM-diseases and the registration policy. A certified veterinarian certificate regarding the GM-status must be attached to the pedigree.

Appearance: alert appearance
Size: medium


Shape: Viewed from the front the head is heart-shaped with good breadth between and across the eyes. The eyebrow ridges form the upper curves of the heart and the sides of the face curve gently down to the chin to complete the heart shape. Jaw pinch is undesirable.
Nose: Length in proportion to the face with a slight stop in profile. There is a slight downward curve at the tip of the nose leather (lion-like)
Jowls/Muzzle/Chin: Jowls and chin firm and well developed, forming a good balance for the profile and for the completion of the heart shape. Muzzle neither sharply pointed nor square. Chin neither weak nor receding which gives a pointed shape to the head.


Shape: large, broad at the base, slightly rounded at the tips. Inside of ears slightly covered and outside well covered with extremely short and close hair.
Placement: Set high on head to give an alert expression


Shape: large, round and well opened, rather oversized for the face
Colour: luminous and expressive Brilliant green colour is preferred, but amber is permissible in kittens and young adults up to 2 years of age


Structure: Semy-cobby but still elegant, muscular, supple, powerful but not heavily built; heavier in weight than appearance suggests. Back curved.
Legs: in good proportion to the body. Hind legs slightly longer than front legs.
Paws: Oval
Tail: medium long, heavier at the base tapering to a rounded tip


Structure: short to medium in length, lying close to the body, single coat. Glossy and fine. Inclined to break over the spine as the cat moves.
Colour: Silver-blue only, without shading or tabby markings; no white hair or patches are allowed; each hair should be lighter at the root, then shades to darker blue and ends with a silver tip the more silver the better. At the extremities where the coat is shorter, the silver is intensified; silver effect restricted only to head, legs and the paws is undesirable

Nose leather/Lips:

dark blue-grey or lavender; some loss of pigmentation should be tolerated in older cats

Paw pads:

dark blue-grey to lavender with a pink tinge; some loss of pigmentation should be tolerated in older cats

Faults leading to disqualification:

Any other colour than silver and blue.
