The Balinese cat is a graceful, lively and loving feline. This cat is medium in size with a tubular body and a long triangular face. They range between eight and 12 pounds with blue eyes and a coat that is medium to long in length. The extremities of the tail, legs, ears and face are darker in color to give them that unique special appearance. They are very similar in stature to the Siamese cat as they are descendants but with a coat soft as ermine. The friendly staff at your local Rockford area Petsmart or Petco as listed below (or one closest to your home) can help you with special tips on caring for a Balinese cat as well as help you with all its necessities.
It is unsure just how the Siamese inherited the gene in order to produce this longer-coated breed of cat. The Balinese cat was not intentionally created but was quite a surprise to breeders in the early 1900s. There was a lot of controversy among other cat Fanciers until the 1970s when this breed was finally recognized by all major North American associations of cats.
The Balinese cat is a very outgoing breed of cat, known as graceful dancers, and requires being the center of attention. These very talented cats are very vocal and have a way of communicating with you. Sometimes with the demeanor of a dog, it is not unusual for this kitty to greet you at the door after a long day away from home. Because of their talents and extreme jumping abilities, you will have to go the extra step to cat-proof your home.
If you are looking for the typical independent breed of cat, the Balinese cat is not the right choice for you. They are very interactive with you, love to play games and make great companions. Being very social, these cats are in tune to your feelings and emotions. If you’re angry or sad, they are right there to cheer you up. They dislike being around disarray and arguments and shy away from being scolded. They are not real happy with being left alone for long periods of time.
The Balinese cat is a relatively healthy breed of cat. Some of these cats can have a problem with gingivitis and cardiomyopathy. Because they are a slender-boned cat, it is important that you take care to avoid obesity.
The grooming needs of this cat are minimal. Because this cat does not have the downy undercoat of longer breeds, their coats typically do not get matted. A weekly brushing should suffice. Of course, remember to keep the ears clean, the nails cut and brush the teeth often.
If you choose the Balinese cat to add to your family, do your research and adopt from a reputable breeder who can provide you with a health guarantee on your new pet. Once you get your new cat, be sure to visit with your regular veterinarian for complete examination, vaccination regimen and a schedule for getting your cat spayed or neutered for its health and well-being.
If you love cats and dogs alike, this is a great breed of feline. They make wonderful friends and family members to add to your home, are loving and loyal to anyone who will give them attention. He will give you many years of joy and adoration.
