The Balinese cat is very much like the Siamese cat in characteristics but the Balinese cat generally has longer hair and is more likely to have markings on its fur. The Balinese cat is about the same size and weight as the Siamese cat and also tends to be found in similar colours.
The Balinese cat is a popular longhair household cat as the Balinese cat does not need grooming as much as other long-haired cats, such as the Himalayan cat and the Persian cat. The elegant features of Balinese cat also make it a popular breed in Western households.
