Colorpoint Shorthair/Balinese/Oriental - The personality characteristics of these breeds are virtually the same. The Siamese is the parent breed and is one of the world's oldest natural breeds of cats, and comes in the colors blue, seal, chocolate, and lilac pointed. The Colorpoint Shorthair was created in the 1940's by breeding Siamese to American Shorthairs because breeders wanted to expand the colors of the Siamese to red points, tortoiseshell points, and lynx points. The Orientals were created during the process of creating the Colorpoint Shorthair breed. Balinese are a medium sized cat with females being between 5-7 pounds and males between 6-8 pounds. They are the ballerina of the cat fancy and although they look very skinny, they are extremely muscular and athletic. They require very little grooming as they have a close lying single coat. I recommend a weekly brushing with a rubber brush and trimming their nails every week to two weeks. The longhaired varieties require minimal grooming as well. These breeds are often called "Velcro kitties" as they demand to be around you at all times and do everything they can so that they are snuggled up to you as close as they can get. They are also extremely intelligent and talkative.
The average pet price range for these breeds of cats is $850-1250. We occasionally have young retired adults available, and their price range is from $400-700. We raise a wide variety of colors/patterns of these breeds, including solid points, parti color points, and lynx points, and in Orientals we raise solids, tabbies, parti-colors, pointeds, and bicolors.
