Balinese, including Javanese

The ideal Balinese and Javanese are svelte cats with long tapering lines, very lithe but strong and muscular. Because of the longer coat the Balinese and Javanese appear to have softer lines and less extreme type than other breeds of cats with similar type.

The slender lines and flowing coat hide a rock hard body capable of amazing feats of acrobatic proportions. Highly intelligent, they become familiar with their human's routine. They will "talk", gently reminding when you are late with meals or play time, joyously greeting you whenever you have been away.

Despite the regal bearing and aristocratic appearance, the Balinese and Javanese are clowns with hearts as big as a circus tent. While the Balinese might not have specific personalities linked to each color, the Javanese most definitely do! They "speak" their minds freely and entertain you with their antics.
