Here are the detailed photos.

Here is "Saem Sawet" in the Samut Khoi. Only the Khlong* manuscripts have this cat. Its place in the list in the Kaap* metres is taken by a dark phase dilute called Parort (Mercury) and the very old Klon* manuscript has Khao Plort (all white).

Epilogue: Laurie and I attempted to collect cheek swabs, but this turned out to be very challenging. It's not known whether they were tested.
