The color of the Balinese is called color-point, popularly "Siamese". Points - areas of the body of a cat with a bright, rich color of the coat: ears, "mask" on the head, lower limbs, tail. All other areas of the body, and this is mainly the torso, are as light as possible and should clearly contrast with the points. On the body, a slight shade to match the color of the points is acceptable. The “mask” on the head completely covers the entire muzzle, including the mustache pads, and comes into contact with the ears, but does not merge with them. The "mask" should not turn into a "hood" and go to the back of the head. Marks on all parts of the body should be evenly painted over and of the same color. There should be no white spots or individual white hairs around the points. Older balines have a tendency to darken the whole body.The experts are condescending to this.

Initially, only four colors were recognized for Siamese and Balinese cats: black point, chocolate point, purple point and blue point. Over time, the range of colors has been expanded and now there are more than fifty, including tortie, tabby and white.

In the American standard, the color variants derived from the shorthaired color point are further considered a separate breed known as the Javanese.

The nature and temperament of the Balinese cat

The character of balinese is distinguished by sensuality and sociability, one of its main features is a strong affection for the owner. Balinese cats love human society. They like it when people pay attention to them, play, talk to them. But if no one has a desire to deal with a cat at the moment, then she will always find a suitable occupation for herself.

Balinese cats love to "talk". Their gentle, melodious voice is reminiscent of the cry of doves. Children and Balinese cats understand each other perfectly and will always figure out how to have fun. Balinese want to participate in everything that happens in the house. They can be quite persistent in their requests for attention.

The need for movement in these cats is very high, especially in kittens. They love walking on the street, they easily get used to the harness. They jump very well, both in height and in length. It is believed that the Balinese cats have the highest intelligence of all long-haired breeds.

Fearless defenders of their territory, gentle friends of their master, and patient toys in the hands of children. However, they are wary of strangers. They hate loneliness, so if you don't want to come home from work to find a pogrom at home, take care of toys (especially interactive ones) for your pet. Since this is a fairly jumpy breed, you need to get a taller and more complex cat house. This, of course, will result in additional expenses, but you will save on repairs and the purchase of new furniture, curtains, clothes, flowers, etc.

Have self-esteem. Get along well with dogs and other cats. Balinese people love to roll on their shoulders and play fetch the mouse. Give them a ping-pong ball and they will play football with it for hours.

When you sit down, the balinese will curl up in your lap, and at night he will lie in bed with you, under the covers, resting his head on the pillow. Balinese cats often roll around under their feet, so it is not recommended to keep them in a home where elderly people with sore legs live using a walker, cane or crutches.
