Long-Haired Siamese is Not From Bali
Contrary to its given name, the Balinese cat is not from Bali or Indonesia.
The breed is actually a Siamese with long hair, which was once considered an abnormality until a couple of cat fanciers decided to start breeding the line with a focus on this long-haired oddity.
So, how did the new breed get its exotic name? Some might consider that the only odd thing about this much beloved feline.
As with any pet, be sure to regularly consult a veterinarian for routine care and medical advice for your four-legged friend.
