Long Coated Siamese / How the Balinese breed began in the 1950's

The Balinese breed was developed by two Siamese breeders in the United States. The breeders noticed that there were "long coated" kittens in their litters.  They started a new breed to develop the beautiful long coats and named them "Balinese".  Occasionally we have long coated Siamese which have the appearance of the  Balinese. They are really very stunning.  They have  fabulous silky flowing coats and all the wonderful qualities of the Siamese.
