Javanese Breed Information
The Javanese is a recognized breed of cat. Javanese
have a long, silky coat, that comes in a variety of colors.
Javanese cats, like their Siamese relatives, are noted as being
very intelligent and talkative. Similar in coat style to the
Balinese, Javanese are pointed
cats that fall outside of the typically accepted point colors seen
in Balinese cats (seal, blue, chocolate and lilac). Instead,
Javanese are referred to as colorpoint cats, showing odd or rare
colors, such as red or white, as well as patterns such as tabby and
As they are directly related to Siamese and Balinese cats, they can suffer from some of the same genetic defects. Generally, these defects are bred out of the active lines and are becoming rare. They are very social cats which can become depressed if they are left alone too often. They are generally very playful pets, and are markedly good at jumping. However, they do have a tendency to become overweight if they do not receive adequate exercise. Javanese are also quite vocal, and most will "talk" for no particular reason.
