Care of Balinese Cat
The Balinese is generally a very active, intelligent, affectionate and particularly social, medium-sized cat. Balinese kittens enjoy playing and are very curious, so it is important that you have lots of toys, scratching posts and enrichment ideas ready to keep them entertained and stimulated.
They also crave company. They are not a cat that would suit being left alone for long periods at a time, and this could result in them becoming distressed and possibly exhibiting destructive behavior. With proper introductions, they are a breed that can live well alongside children, dogs, and other pets. They are often a popular choice as a family cat.
The Balinese has a medium length, silky coat, and while they do shed seasonally, their coat does not require too much maintenance. They don’t have an undercoat and this means they are not so prone to getting tangles or mats. A good brush out of any loose, dead hair around once a week should be enough to keep their coat in good condition.
With their bright blue eyes, large ears, impressive plumed tail, and muscular physique, they are a strikingly beautiful and athletic creature. Their large ears may need a little more attention paid to cleaning than some cats though.
Some Balinese lovers claim that they are a hypoallergenic breed. There is no scientific basis behind this though. The fact that the Balinese does not have an undercoat means that they shed less and this could minimize a potential allergic reaction, but it is certainly no guarantee.
Diet and Nutrition
Balinese, like any cat, should be fed a high-quality diet that is appropriately portion-controlled to avoid any weight-related health problems. They are known for being picky eaters so you may find they are more inclined to eat a wet diet than dry kibble. If they are on a wet diet, they may need a more regular dental hygiene regime to prevent them from developing gum disease.

If these are not provided, the Balinese will make anything tall her own special perch; her slender figure conceals a powerful jumper. You may find her leaping effortlessly to the top of your refrigerator, bookcases and even the tops of doors.
