A pictorial record of cats in Bankok
and Southern Thailand

As a lifelong enthusiast of Siamese cats, I have always wanted to observe these cats in their original forms.The following is a record some of the interesting cats we met on our trip in April 1997.

 Some etchings of my siamese cat can be found here.

Although historically the Thais have been enthusiastic categorisers of feline form, there is such variety within the native gene pool with regard to colour and form as to defy hard definitions.

Rather they are all points along a continuum which embraces the following extremes:

Vichien Mat
Thong  Daeng
Khoa Manee
(White Jewel)
Moew Se Sawat
(9 colour cat)
