Unfortunately I can't set you up with a link to yahoo (can't figure out why either). Go into yahoo and search for cat breeds. It'll give you and A-Z of different breeds.

The price of a Russian Blue or Korat all depends on the breeder and the quality of cat you're looking for. Show quality is more expensive while pet quality is a little more reasonable depending on the breeder. Some breeders will retire studs and queens, spay or neuter them and sell them as household pets. That's probably your best bet.

I had a Korat that was rescued out of a NYC Kill Shelter. He was wonderful. I showed him in cat shows as a household pet until he became tired of it. Here's a picture. He had a great temperament although he could be "goofy" at times. He now lives as an only cat and has a great life with two people (friends of mine) who love him alot. His name was Tucker.

Good luck in your search. Please let us know how you make out.

Usually, for a pet quality (not used for breeding or showing) will cost around $500+. :tounge2:

You can get a cross like Tucker in rescue (you can see Tucker's eyes are the wrong color for a purebred Korat and he has a locket, which is also not allowed in show)and many of these cats have the personality of the breed they resemble. Most of the breeders I know will let a pet go for anywheres from $400 to $600, depending on age, and which breed you choose. I too have a domestic who appears to be a Russian Blue cross - he has the green eyes and proper shaped face and is a small boned cat. Judges have seen both Donna's Tucker and my Karma and have said the same - they strongly resemble their respective breed. So it really depends on what you want - if you want to show, then by all means go to a breeder - if you want a purebred but don't care if it is a kitten or showable, go to the individual breed rescue and if you don't care if it is completely purebred, check out the general rescues.
