Thai basic information
The Thai is a wonderful choice in a cat for any fancier. It's calm temperament makes it well suited for multiple environments, be it apartment living or a country setting. They are patient with children and calm enough to make good pets for seniors as well.
The Thai is similar to the Siamese, yet its appearance is much rounder and it has a more moderate body and head. The Thai is a medium sized cat weighing 11-15 pounds for males, and 8-12 pounds for females at maturity. The accepted colors are also similar to the Siamese, being blue, chocolate, lilac and seal point colors. Point refers to the areas of the tail, paws, face and ears. The Thai kitten will be born almost entirely white, with its points developing as it matures. This cat is muscular and athletic. Its dazzling blue eyes add an extra sparkle to this already handsome breed. They are a healthy breed and typically live 15-20 years. It is not rare to find a Thai cat over 20 years of age.
