Description / History
The Traditional Balinese (aka Applehead Balinese) cat combines the unique personality and intelligence, robust body type, pointed coloring, and the minimal shedding 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.
Medium length, fine, silky without downy undercoat; lying close to the body; tail hair spreads out like a plume.
The Traditional Balinese are only accepted in TCA.
