balinese cat and kitten

Our family has been breeding Traditional Siamese cats for nearly thirty years and two generations, and we are proud to have selected our breeding stock for their intelligence, loving and calm temperaments, robust health and beauty.

Recently, we've begun to breed the silky-haired 'cousins' to Traditional Siamese, the Traditional Balinese which, in our opinion, is the only breed to rival the Traditional Siamese for being the finest of all companion cats. (For more information on Traditional Balinese history and traits see Traditional Balinese History, Temperament and Characteristics).

Traditional Balinese cats and kittens are not only loving and playful, but extremely intelligent, being ranked most intelligent among all longer-haired cats while their silky non-matting coats shed minimally, the least of all medium-haired cats.

This makes the Traditional Balinese ideal for people who love the outgoing intelligence and the cuddly robust body type of the Traditional Siamese and also love the silky touch of longer fur. Traditional Balinese are much like a Traditional Siamese wrapped in silk. To see a Balinese is to want to touch it, to pick it up, to hold it to your cheek.

We have found the Traditional Balinese irresistible and people who visit us agree that the Balinese combines the very best traits of both long and short-haired cats.

Our Balinese cats are family members, loose in our house with us. We raise very high quality Old Fashion Balinese. Our kittens are hand raised friendly and affectionate companions, unafraid of children or the activity of a household. Their personalities range from lap cats to clowns. Our goal is to match you with the kitten that suits you best.

Our kittens my go to their new homes beginning at 10 weeks old. We feel that 10 to 14 weeks is the optimum time for a kitten to bond to their new people.

No destructive, neurotic or cross-eyed cats are ever used for breeding, and these traits do not appear in our cats.

Show Record. At this time, Traditional Balinese are shown only in cat shows that recognize the traditional Balinese such as the 'Traditional and Classic Cat International' (TCCI). Cosset, one of our queens, was 1997 Best Traditional Balinese. In 1998 one of our Balinese kittens received the prestigious 'Morris Award' as Best Kitten In Show. In the 1999 show, one of our kittens was again Best Kitten in Show and the father was Best Traditional Balinese and Best Traditional Seal Point Balinese. In the most recent 2002 International competition one of our cats was Best Cat In Show and our kittens placed second and third Best Kitten In Show as well as many other first places.

We are proud to say that historically our cats and kittens take many first prizes in various classes including Best Seal Point, Best Chocolate Point, and several of our kittens usually place in the top five.

Our Balinese kittens and cats will be featured in a video entitled "Kittens and Stuff," released in 2001.

References. We have a well-documented reputation for raising top quality, superbly socialized kittens in immaculate conditions. References from previous customers are available upon request.

Health Care. From a veterinarian-conducted inspection we received a perfect score on all criteria to receive certification as a "CFA Cattery of Excellence" and a TCCI Supreme Cattery of Excellence." All cats are up to date on innoculations and are guaranteed free of Leukemia and FIV as well as any genetic defects. Written health guarantee provided. All kittens are free of both internal and external parasites and will have at least their first shot before leaving the premises. Cats from our family commonly live between 18 to 21 years.

Transportation. Because of the unusually calm and reasonable nature of our kittens, they have been shipped all over North America with no difficulty and we are happy to do so, conditions permitting.

Stud Service. To be absolutely certain of the health of our cats and kittens, under no circumstances are outside cats permitted on the premises, and therefore no stud service is available.

Price and Registrations. General price range is between $600 and up with exceptional individuals priced separately. References and photos are available. Our cats are registered CFA and/or TCCI and come with a 5 generation Pedigree. We guarantee our kittens to be pure and authentic Traditional Balinese of the highest quality.

Goals. Our goal in raising the Traditional Balinese is to keep this noble and highly intelligent breed alive and to share them with other Traditional Balinese lovers. It is extremely important to us that you and your cat are a 'love match' and, since we are fully acquainted with our kittens' individual personalities before they leave us, we can often match you with exactly the right kitten for your particular situation.

Here, let's realize How the cycle life of Balinese. Hence we will known.

The Banjar, Social Hub of Village Life :
Bali is not a place where each seeks his own - it is a place that requires collective participation in almost every aspect of political, social, economic, and religious life. The extended family itself acts like a social organization, but beyond that the most immediate and intimate organization for every Balinese is the banjar.

Calonarang
Calonarang drama first appeared in fourteenth century Java, but it gained poplularity in nineteenth century Bali, Calonarang existed in Gianyar district in 1825.
Caste and Clan
Of all the aspects of Hinduism, Caste is the least understood and the most execrated. Caste is the social codification of dharma. Clan provides yet another social structure in Bali, sometimes overlapping caste division, sometimes forming a separate but equal network.

Cock Fighting
Cockfighting is a very old tradition in Bali, and before the Indonesian government banned gambling in 1981 the sport attracted huge crowds to the public wantilan arenas.

Family Life
In the real life on the island is not all spectacle as draws to the visitor's attention to large. People spend most of their time at home, doing the thousand-and-one trivial things that occupy families the world over.

It is an important category of the Panca Yadna ("Five Rituals") that every Balinese Hindu absolutely must have performed to insure an orderly transition of his or her spirit from birth to death and later reincarnation.

Topeng Balinese Dance

Witchcraft and Magic
Magic is an important aspect of Balinese culture that penetrates almost every act and through of most of Balinese people. Yet it is something that the casual visitor to Bali will probably never realize even exists.

Traditional Balinese Orchestra
Visitors to Bali almost always come away with the sounds of the unigue and flamboyant gamelan ringing in their ears. The tradition of the gamelan is certainly an old one. But nothing in Bali sutvives unchanged for long.

The Balinese Languages
we're in Bali it is not enough to speak Balinese like a native. To know aome basic linguistic rules and pronunciation hints, is to look some aspects of the language that offer clues to Balinese culture and society.

Rice and Ritual
In Bali a complex governmental and village infrastructure organizes and supervises rice growing and irrigation, and a large body or religious observations, prayers, ceremonies, offerings, festivals, and obligations penetrate all aspects of Balinese rice farming. Rice and rice ritual occupy a major portion of the time, energy, and money of the people of Bali.

Food and Spices
Bali has own character of cuisine's menus. It isn't far from the sea, and so fish is another source of protein. The favorite variety, or at least the cheapest, is dried or salted fish, if one lives away from the sea.

Drama Mask
Drama masks are used in four traditional Balinese dramas and processions (:Topeng, Barong, Wayang Wong, Calonarang). Their types used in this dramas depict humans, animals, and demons.

Religion
There are the family temples that Bali Hindus have temple in their homes. Each temple holds a festival, that range from a simple affair in a family home to a lengthy celebration with many performances and offerings attended by worshippers from all over the island.

Women
