Javanese Rescue Information: A Javanese is a Siamese with a genetic mutation resulting in a luxurious, thick coat and unusual coloring. Javanese are intelligent and loving lap cats. Javanese have very communicative facial expressions, meows, and body language. Javanese are playful, graceful house cats.
Javanese Trivia: Javanese cats are named after the island of Java. Javanese result from a genetic accident resulting in Siamese with long hair. Javanese have a single coat, rather than the double coat more common in long haired cats, which makes grooming easier. Javanese are not as vocal as Siamese Cats. Javanese do not have the traditional color combinations of Siamese; long haired Siamese with traditional coloring are called Balinese. (The island of Bali is next to the island of Java.)
