Balinese (Chanan)The Balinese cat breed is a semi-longhaired variant of the Siamese breed. Its coat is of medium length, and very silky and fine.

Balinese kittens are found in the four solid point colors associated with the Siamese breed (seal, blue, chocolate and lilac point). It is also found in other colors and patterns, such as red point, cream point, lynx (tabby) point, and tortie point. These cats used to be registered as Javanese in CFA, but these are now considered a color division of the Balinese

Although longhaired Siamese kittens appeared in some litters, it was not until the mid-1950s that longhaired cats of Siamese type and coloration were actively bred. The breed was first accepted for championship status in 1961 by CFF.

Like its parent breed, the Siamese, the Balinese personality very active, affectionate, talkative, and inquisitive. Balinese likes to get underfoot and be part of everything its owner does.

Some breeders work with a more traditional, round-headed and heavier-bodied variety, based on the Traditional or Applehead Siamese. They are available in the same colors and have a similar personality to the show-style Balinese. If you are more interested in this body type, look for breeders who advertise "traditional type".

Assocations: The Balinese cat breed is accepted by most associations.
