Balinese Cats & Kittens for Sale

The Balinese is an incredibly graceful breed first bred in the 1950s after Siamese breeders noticed that some long-haired kittens were being born in their litters. Originally known as long-haired Siamese, the name was changed to Balinese by Siamese breeder Helen Smith, to reflect the elegance of the breed that reminded her of Balinese Temple dancers.

Meet the Balinese Cat

The Balinese breed is elegant in both appearance and movement, with a fine bone structure, long tubular body and an impressive long plumed tail. Their heads are triangular, with the shape running down from their long pointed ears to their narrow muzzles. The striking blue oriental eyes of this breed slant downwards towards the nose and give them their signature alert and curious look. Balinese cats are medium sized, ranging from 3-4.5kg and reaching up to 18 inches in length. Males are generally significantly larger than females.

As Balinese cats are closely related to the Siamese breed, they look very similar. However, there is one distinct difference – the coat. Balinese cats boast a medium length silky coat that lies flat against the body. As these cats do not have an undercoat, their grooming needs are fairly low compared to other long-haired breeds. Their coats come in a wide variety of colours, however the face, tail, ears, and paws are always darker than the rest of the body. Recognised coat colours include chocolate point, seal point, and lilac point.

Balinese Cat Temperament

Bengal cats are known to be incredibly affectionate and chatty, just like their Siamese counterparts. They love to be involved in family activities and have no issues following you around the house; whether you are working, cleaning, or chilling! They form very strong bonds with their owners and do not like to be left alone for long periods, so they are not suitable for people who are out of the house for most of the day. Balinese cats are thought to be one of the most intelligent breeds on the planet so they enjoy the mental stimulation that comes with learning new tricks and they respond well to clicker training. They also love to be involved with family games and are known to be able to make a toy out of anything – from a mouse to a dried leaf that has blown in from outside!

These energetic cats need plenty of exercise to remain happy, so it is a good idea to invest in cat trees and shelves if you are planning on adopting one of these beautiful felines. Although they have slightly quieter voices than Siamese cats, they are certainly just as opinionated so they make the perfect pet choice for people looking for a chatty and interactive companion.

We also ensure they are fully vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped, so you don’t have to worry about it. Instead, you can simply enjoy the companionship of your new feline family member! Balinese cats are susceptible to developing certain diseases later in life so we make sure all of our kittens come from parents that are DNA checked. We also DNA test the kittens to ensure they do not have any genetic mutations that may predispose them to health conditions. If no issues are present, you will know that your Balinese is unlikely to develop any detrimental health problems during its life. Our kittens are at least 10-13 weeks old before they are allowed to leave their mother and siblings, which ensures that they have been appropriately weaned and socialised.
Can I see the parents of a Balinese kitten?
Absolutely, in fact, we recommend it! We can arrange a video call between you and the breeder to show you the kittens with their mother or both parents.
Will I receive the pedigree documents of a Balinese kitten?
Yes, all of our Balinese kittens come with internationally recognised pedigree documents such as GCCF, TICA, FIFe. The exact registration will depend on the location of the breeder. For example, in Great Britain, most kittens will be registered under GCCF.

Yes, The Pedigree Paws only offers kittens from the very best breeders in the industry who adhere to the strict breeding and animal welfare policies set by internationally recognised cat organizations. Our breeders are passionate about animals and work hard to protect their health and wellbeing. We also follow a comprehensive breeder selection process that ensures all of our breeders treat their animals like family members and care for them in their homes, rather than in a commercial breeding facility. This way, we know that the kittens are fully socialized and well taken care of. This process will also give YOU the reassurance that you are purchasing a kitten who will grow into a well-mannered cat that will display the very best qualities of the Burmese Breed.
When can I receive my Balinese kitten?
We know once you've chosen your kitten, you will want to meet them straight away. However, early weaning can be detrimental to a kitten's health and development. We prefer that they stay with their mother and siblings until they are 10-13 weeks old. However, this is just a guideline, and you can discuss the exact time scale with the breeder.
How can I help settle my Balinese kitten into their new home?
Balinese cats are highly social so they should bond with you fairly quickly. However, as with all cats, they can be a little resistant to change and can become nervous in new environments. Here are a few ways you can help your Balinese kitten to adapt to his new home: Firstly, we recommend that you ask the breeder to send your kitten along with a towel or blanket with their mother's scent. The feline pheromones the mother cats give off are incredibly calming and can help your kitten to feel safe and secure. Only allow your kitten access to one room of the house at a time. Once your kitten appears comfortable, you can then slowly introduce them to other parts of the home under supervision. Do not invite any guests around until you're confident the kitten is feeling settled. With Balinese kittens, it is essential that you offer reassurance as much as possible and make sure you introduce new family members and other pets slowly so they have time to adjust.
