The Balinese gets its name from its sinuous flowing movement, which reminded early breeders of Balinese dancers. Its oriental body type, with a long, tubular body and a wedge-shaped head, is softened by the semi-long coat that graces its body. The head type is the same as the Siamese and includes a flat profile and flared ears. Traditional colors are seal, chocolate, blue and lilac points. Red, cream, lynx and parti-color points are registered as Balinese in some associations, and as Javanese in others. The rascally long-haired version of Siamese is not only beautiful, but extremely intelligent and affectionate as well. Wondeful with both children and other pets, Balis just seem to make friends with everyone.
