The Balinese cat is smart, gentle. If you ask the owners why they love their pets, then you risk listening to a long monologue.
Indeed, despite the aristocratic posture and proud appearance, a loving and faithful heart is hidden under them. And to assess the level of intelligence, it is enough to look once into the sapphire eyes, you will see attentiveness and hidden curiosity.
These cats are friendly and sociable, they love to be in the company of people, although they are attached to one person.
They are beautiful, sweet, and curious. Their voice is loud, just like that of Siamese cats, but unlike them, soft and musical. The only one between the Balinese and the traditional Siamese cat – coat length. They are long, graceful cats, but strong and muscular. The body is pipe-shaped and covered with wool of medium length. Sexually mature cats weigh from 3.5 to 4.5 kg and cats from 2.5 to 3.5 kg. The body is long, slender, and thin paws. The movements are smooth and elegant, the cat itself is graceful, it was not for nothing that it got its name. Life expectancy is 12 to 15 years.
The head is medium in size, in the form of a tapering wedge, with a smooth forehead, wedge-shaped muzzle, and ears set wide apart. The eyes are like those of Siamese cats, blue, almost sapphire color.
The brighter they are, the better. The shape of the eyes is almond-shaped, they are widely spaced. Strabismus is unacceptable, and the width between the eyes should be at least a few centimeters.
The voice is quiet and soft, and not as persistent as that of Siamese cats. If you are looking for an outgoing, musical cat, then Balinese for you.
The cat has a coat without an undercoat, soft and silky, 1.5 to 5 cm long, close to the body, so that it seems shorter in length than it really is. The tail is fluffy, with long plume-forming hair. The plume is proof that you have real Balinese. The tail itself is long and thin, without kinks and bumps.
Since they do not have an undercoat, you will play more with the cat than combing. A long coat makes it rounder and softer in appearance than other breeds.
Color – dark spots on the eyes, legs, and tail, forming a mask on the face – color-point. The rest of the parts are light, forming a contrast with these spots. The color of the points should be uniform, without light spots and unevenness. The palette includes redpoint, cream point, tabby, cinnamon, fawn, and others. Other feline associations have also joined. Balinese cats need a lot of attention and should not be left alone for long. It’s easier to entertain with a game, they love to play. They turn any object, a sheet of paper, a child’s thrown cube, or a dropped hairpin, into a toy. And yes, they get along with other pets as well.
Mettle is wonderful, the cat loves people and is attached to the family. She will be the best friend who wants to be with you.
It doesn’t matter what you do: lie in bed, work at the computer, play, she is next to you. They definitely need to retell you everything they saw, in their tender feline language.
