Thai


When cat lovers first see the Thai, they often recall the Siamese cats they lived with as children. Often referred to as the “old-style” Siamese, the Thai features the beautiful pointed coat and distinctive blue eyes on a moderate, rounded body. A native of Thailand, the Thai forms close bonds with its owner and enjoys “talking” in its distinctive voice.
