The Thai is a medium-sized feline that can weigh around 8 to 10 lbs. The female appears daintier than the male, who is heavier. However, a female should not be undersized because regardless of its gender, the Thai cat has a firm and muscular body. It also has a medium-sized tapering tail to a rounded tip.
At the feline’s frontal view, a heart-shaped head with a width between its eyes. It has a well-developed muzzle with a short nose slightly curving downward. The ears are large with rounded tips, completing an alert look. The Thai cat’s coat is short to medium in length and appears glossy, close-lying coats. It has a very little undercoat. The Thai cat has two colour classifications:
- Thai Blue Point has an off-white body colour. Aside from the shading on the points, it can also have shading on the back. Its eyes are brilliant blue.
- Thai Lilac, true to its name, is dressed in a lilac coat with silver tipping. Its eyes are vivid in green colour.
Being a short-haired feline, this breed requires less grooming with only a weekly brushing necessary. You only need to give grooming more attention when the Thai sheds the most during spring. Complete your cat’s grooming routine with regular nail trimming, teeth brushing, and ear cleaning. The earlier these grooming routines are introduced, the better.
