Balinese

Description:

The Balinese cat breed is a semi-longhaired variant of the Siamese breed. Its coat is of medium length and very silky and fine. Balinese kittens are found in the four solid point colors associated with the Siamese breed. It is also found in other colors and patterns, such as red point, cream point, lynx  point, and tortie point. These are sometimes referred to as "Javanese"

10 - 14 years.

Balinese Colours:

Allowable colours vary depending on  cat club but generally the Balinese come in the same colours in which  Siamese come in, including Tortie and Tabby Points.

 

Suitable for:

Balinese are suitable for all family situations as  they are easy going and get along with children and other pets.

Personality:

 

Balinese cats are smart, sweet, and fun to be around. Like the Siamese they are known for their ability to communicate vocally, sometimes nonstop, and therefore this breed is not for everyone . Highly social, Balinese are sensitive to your moods and feelings and are more than willing to cheer you up with some happy chatter.

They are  leapers and will often ride on their people's shoulders. They love to play and easily learn to fetch, bringing the ball or toy back for repeated throwing, but possess a loving disposition as well. They can be quite assertive in their requests for attention, but also possess a special dignity particular to the Balinese and Siamese breeds.

Activity Level:

Balinese are lively, playful and full of energy, especially around other cats and with their people. These are muscular, athletic animals and should not be thought of as delicate or frail, simply because of their elegant appearance. They do enjoy relaxing on cushions or couches, especially after a good frenzied frolic around the house.

History:

The early history of the Traditional Balinese is the same as the history of the Siamese. The Siamese is considered by many to be a natural breed  that is to say, one that developed without the intervention of man.

The first Siamese cats appeared in the West in the mid to late 1800s. Photographs from the late 1880s of some of the first cats to be imported from Siam show the thick, round heads and solid, muscular bodies that distinguish the Traditional Siamese from today's modern Siamese that dominate the modern show ring.

Many say that Balinese kittens have always appeared now and again in purebred Siamese litters. Some attribute a pure Siamese appearing with a longer coat to be a simple mutation and say there are examples of early drawings that depict pointed cats with what seems longer fur. Another opinion is that it was an outgrowth of the domestication of the Palas cat who originated in western China and has a very dense coat which comes in a wide variety of colors. Others say that the longer coat is a result of the early British breeders crossing them with the then popular Angora or Turkish Angora, a cat with a tremendous history as a companion cat
