A VERY SPECIAL CAT
The cat is of the Wichian Mat breed and will be on both large and small bags to be distributed for promotional purposes.
The Wichian Mat breed has brown fur with black and white tints and blue eyes.
THAILAND'S MOST FAMOUS CAT
This sought-after Siamese cat has 9 distinguishing marks, which makes it unique among Siamese cats. It is a breed that was known by many foreigners even before Siam became Thailand.
In the reign of King Rama V, His Majesty presented a Wichian Mat cat to the British Consul-General before he departed Thailand.
The Whichian Mat cat also won a cat contest in London, which led to the founding of a Siamese Cat Lovers Club overseas.
