Balinese basic information

The Balinese was named after the graceful dancers on the island of Bali because of their sleek, elegant beauty and grace. Known most commonly as a Siamese with long hair, the Balinese shares many traits with the Siamese, and yet remains its own distinct breed.

A small to medium-sized cat, the Balinese averages approximately seven to nine pounds, fully grown, with a slim, streamline body. The head is average and slightly triangular, like the Siamese, with large, pointed ears and deep blue, almond-shaped eyes. The sleek body rests upon long, slender legs and is covered by a beautiful coat, which is marked the same as a Siamese, only long and soft, with an exquisitely plumed tail. The coat colors range in the same variations as the Siamese: blue, seal, lilac and chocolate. The soft, medium-long coat has no undercoat, as other longhair breeds, and therefore rarely mats and requires much less grooming.
