The Balinese breed- breed under the magnifying glass


The Balinese breed is a slender cat. Elegant, refined, medium-sized. With long hair and a thick tail. It has lines that give discreet and well-proportioned shape to the body.

Besides the attention it strives to achieve in any way, a Balinese cat is easy to maintain.

Take a Siamese cat and dress it in a nice fur. You will instantly get the Balinese breed .

The cat is sociable, vocal, playful, curious and intelligent.




Short history

Balinese has a relatively recent history. In the middle of the 50s, the breeders were intrigued when a long-haired chicken appeared in the pure Siamese nests. Of American breeders, some were impressed by long-haired Siamese. They have decided to standardize the race. All the necessary steps have been taken to recognize it. At the end of the ’50s, the race was named Balinese. Due to the resemblance to Balinese dancing exotic. With the Balinese years, he won the title of champion at various competitions organized by US cats associations. In 1970 CFA (the largest association in the US) recognizes this breed. But only in the classic colors of Siamese: with the black point, chocolate, blue or purple. Since 1979 CFA also recognizes Balinese with a red point, cream, tabby, and torte, but under the name of Javanese.


During the ’70s, the breed started in England too. In 1978 the Balinese Cat Society was established. Race becomes more stable and stronger. FIFE recognized the Balinese and Javanese breeds in 1986. Specimens of this breed have won the title of champion.


At the moment

Balinese, as we know it today, is the result of some great efforts and the dedication of a group of breeders. Short hair Balinese are grown in renowned felines. They are intertwined with quality Siamese to perfect the guy. Cats resulting from this pairing are called Variants. They have short hair and fur has the texture of the plus. They have value invaluable in the Balinese breed growth program. They are carriers of the long hair recessive gene. Transmit the gene when it is mated with long hair baldness or another variant.

How are the Balinese

If you ask someone who has such a cat, what is so special about Balinese, he will answer everything. After that, he will keep a monologue that ends when the speaker is exhausted.

Mother Nature decided that Siamese is already famous, it can increase its fame. Thus, a spontaneous mutation of the Siamese cat appeared. The length of the hair is the only difference between Siamese and Balinese. Siamese has soft and soft hair, and Balinese has a fine, long, silky coat. Balinese has a bushy tail.

Balinese has a single layer of hair without a fluff. Unlike other long hair breeds. The fur is lying down, close to the body, falls naturally and follows the direction of growth.

The cat has a royal outfit and an aristocratic appearance. But also full of life and affection. He is intelligent. Her sapphire-colored eyes shine with untidy curiosity. It has a warmer voice than Siamese and is less charming. Balinese breeders claim their cat is the most elegant and noble of all races.

Balinese is an excellent companion, a loving friend, and a playful partner for the job. They are easily accommodated in a new environment. He understands well with other cats and is ideal as an apartment cat.

Balinese loves his master and engages his soul in everything he does. Either read, cook or wash your teeth. They are very “talked” and can comment on any subject. If the owner is sad, he’s crying with him. If he’s sick, he suffers more like him. If he is happy, he will enjoy and play even more. Balinese love to play.

The boy cats is particularly affectionate and “sticky”.

Proper eating and exercise are essential. The body of Balinese should remain elastic, tubular and silky. The perfect Balinese resembles a silvered steel arch.

Unlike other breeds, many Balinese cats are proud when they reach the ring for competitions. I know how to impose in front of the referees and get under the skin of the spectators.

If the breeder offers you an older chick or an adult, do not hesitate.
