The fur of the Balinese is shorter that that of many of the other semi-longhairs, and lies smooth over the body. The cat is consequently easy to maintain. it is of medium build, but long-limbed and lithe, with the distinctly wedge-shaped head and long, straight nose of the Siamese. The mask is complete over the face and linked to the ears by traces of darker colour (except in kittens). In C=character, the Balinese is bright and very active but loves its comfort.
