                                                Balinese
The Balinese cat is a well-balanced animal with head, ears and neck carried on a long svelte body,
supported on fine legs and feet and with a tail in proportion.

The head - frontal view and profile - is wedge-shaped, neither round nor sharp. Alert and intelligent
expression.

HEAD                Wedge-shaped, long and well proportioned, carried on an elegant neck, with good width
                    between the ears, narrowing in straight lines to a fine muzzle. The wedge starts at the
                    tip of the nose and flares out in straight lines to the tips of the ears, forming a triangle.
                    Straight profile and strong chin.

CHIN                Strong

NECK                Elegant.

EARS                Large and pricked, wide at base.

EYES                Oriental eye shape, pointed at inner and outer corners. Set well apart and slanting
                    towards the nose. Eye size medium, neither protruding nor recessed.

BODY                Medium in size, long, svelte and elegant.

LEGS                Proportionately slim, hind legs slightly higher than front legs

PAWS                Small and oval.

TAIL                Long and tapering.

COAT                Coat medium long, fine and silky in texture, without woolly undercoat, lying flat along the
                    body. The ears may be tufted, and the tail plume-like.

                    Remarks:
                    1. Coat lies flat along the body, with the exception of the areas around the chin, neck
                       and tail, where there may be tendency to frill, thereby disguising the underlying bone
                       structure. By smoothing back the coat, it is possible to study the lines of the bone.
                       Absence of a frill is to be preferred.

                    2. Kittens, being born with short coats, do not normally achieve full coat until they are
                       adults, and allowance should be made for this.
