Balinese-Javanese Cat Breed

The Balinese, often referred to as the Javanese depending on the colour and pattern of its coat, may appear majestic and aristocratic but is really just a curious cat at heart.


Although this breed may seem to be the epitome of refinement, the heart of a playful kitten beats inside its graceful form.

Javanese and Balinese people adore people and long to be among them. For those who have the time and desire to appreciate this most knowledgeable, engaging friend, this makes them superb company.

Like the Siamese, the Balinese and Javanese are chatty. Being extroverted, they get along well with young people and other furry family members.


The Balinese and Javanese are identical to Siamese in every way except for their medium-length, silky coat, and they both have beautiful tail plumes. This long, lanky cat has huge, triangular ears, a head in the Siamese style, and is graceful but powerful.

Colour Collection

Colorpoint Balinese coats come in red, seal, chocolate, cream, blue, lilac, and tortie points. Lynx Point features a variety of patterns and shadings, as well as Javanese.

Hair fall

With a medium-length coat and no undercoat, the Balinese and Javanese are a breed that sheds moderately. Her coat simply has to be brushed once a week to eliminate stray hair and keep it looking tidy.


Despite being a generally healthy breed, Balinese and Javanese can have feline acromelanism, which can cause changes in coat colour in response to temperature fluctuations, and lysosomal storage disease. Additionally, they could get strabismus (crossed eyes), hereditary hepatic amyloidosis, and progressive retinal atrophy (PRA).

Breed History

The Siamese cat breed underwent a natural mutation that resulted in long hair, which is the commonly accepted theory for the origin of this breed. In actuality, the main distinction between Siamese and Balinese dogs is their coat length.

Despite the fact that longhaired Siamese kittens had undoubtedly occasionally appeared in litters, the first significant breeding programme for this species didn’t start until the 1950s.
