About The Balinese Balinese are longhaired versions of the Siamese, with a semi-longhair body and dramatic plume of a tail. They are bred in the traditional four colorpoint patterns of seal, chocolate, blue, and lilac, as well as red, cream, tortie, and lynx (tabby) points.

Although a bit less active than their parent breed, the Siamese, they have the same extroverted, devoted, assertively affectionate nature. Balinese need activity, and will find their own if none is offered. They will play with anything and open anything -- shoelaces, bags, drawers, boxes, or things you might not wish them to have. They love to climb and be up high; scratching posts and trees are a must. Balis don't like being left alone and don't thrive as "only" pets. Balinese shed very little, but contrary to what's often published on the Internet, they are not hypoallergenic.
Did You Know? Balinese who had non-traditional colors and patterns such as red point or lynx (tabby) point used to be classified as Javanese by some associations. Today, all colorpoint patterns and colors are folded under the Balinese breed.
