Javanese Cat Breed

src:wikipedia. A Javanese cat

Originating from Japan, Javanese cats are distinctively different from the Balinese and the Siamese in that the long-haired coat comes in dozens of colors.

The Javanese still maintains the grace and beauty of the Siamese, and the silken feel of the Balinese coat. The Javanese cat was named for the island of Java near Bali.

Intelligent, armed with the capability to problem-solve, the Javanese cat will instantly add adventure to your life.  They can open up drawers and cupboards, turn on water spigots and quickly wind their way into your heart.

As vocal as the Siamese cat , Javanese love to talk to their owners, but their tone is quieter than that of the Siamese.  According to The Cat Fancier’s Complete Cat Book edited by Mordecai Siegal;

Javanese have specific personalities linked to each color.”

To paraphrase;

Tortie points speak their minds freely and entertain you with their antics.

Red and cream points exist solely to love you…

Lynx points vary from regal to dignified to becoming part monkey and squirrel, creative and always entertaining.”

Javenese are long and lanky cats. They are excellent jumpers. Their faces are distinctively oriental with large, pointed ears,  high cheekbones and slightly slanted round eyes.
