Scientific name: Felis catus
Origin: United States
Coat Length: Long Hair
The Balinese is also known as the purebred long-haired Siamese, since it originated as a natural mutation of that breed, and hence is essentially the same cat with a medium-length silky coat and a distinctively plumed tail.
They are sociable, vocal, playful and inquisitive, and considered among the most intelligent of all long-haired breeds.
