The Traditional Balinese combines the outgoing personality, intelligence, robust body type, pointed coloring, and rounded moderate style of the Traditional Siamese, with a softer voice and a silky coat.

They are extremely intelligent, curious and loving. Agile, swift, muscular and extremely intelligent, they love to play fetch or to make up other games. They get along easily with other cats and with dogs and yet are independent enough to adjust to periods of being alone.

While they still 'talk' like their Siamese cousins, their voices are far softer and they speak only when they have something they feel is important to say. They are very alert to their owners and surroundings, but not a hyperactive cat. Rather, they maintain an easy balance of playing and napping depending on the circumstances.

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

The Balinese are found in the four solid point colors associated with the Siamese breed (seal, blue, chocolate and lilac point). See Javanese for other colors, such as red point, cream point, lynx (tabby) point, and tortie point.

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 is an active, very affectionate, talkative, and inquisitive breed. It likes to get underfoot and be part of everything its owner does. There is no job that two hands can do that a Balinese will think two hands and four paws cannot do better.
