Breed of the Week: Balinese

By February 12, 2013

Follow me on:

Take a svelte, graceful Siamese cat, add a medium-long silky coat, and you have a Balinese. Every bit as lively as its shorthaired relative, the Balinese is equally affectionate without being as noisy. Its single coat makes it easier to groom than other longhairs, and does not take away from the exquisite lines of its body.

Much like the Siamese, the Balinese standard has changed over the years, but a strong force of lovers of the traditional Balinese still fight to preserve the breed.
