Javanese Kittens For Sale

The Javanese cat was developed by crossing a number of established breeds in the Oriental family such as the Balinese, the Colorpoint Shorthair and the Siamese. The distinctive result is a cat which is considered almost identical to the Siamese except for its color-pointed, longhaired coat and exquisite plumed tail. The Javanese cat is not from the Indonesian Island of Java. It was given the name because of its genetic ties to the Balinese, another cat named confusingly to represent the sister island of Bali, where neither cat originates. At first, the launch of the Javanese cat breed was considered a unique strain separate from the Balinese cat by TICA (The International Cat Association), but has since been declared a division of the Balinese by that organization as well as the Cat Fanciers Association.

The Javanese cat is one breed within the hybrid "designer cat” category that is styled after the Siamese, including the Colorpoint Shorthair, Balinese, Oriental Longhair and Oriental Shorthair. Each of these breeds share similar personality and conformation traits. What differs among them are the coat colors and patterns, length, and (in some cases) the feline association within which each is recognized.

The Siamese comes in four point colors, which are blue, seal, lilac, and chocolate. The Colorpoint Shorthair is a version of the Javanese cat with a coat of abbreviated length and pointed colors outside the Siamese's traditional colors. These include cream, red, lynx, and torti points.

Although the Colorpoint Shorthair and Javanese cat could be considered the same cat, the Cat Fanciers Association defines them differently. It is the only registry that does so. The others consider the breed part of the Siamese and Balinese breeds, with special color specifications. The Javanese cat was recognized by the Cat Fanciers Association in 1987.

Long and lean with refined features and a slender, delicate build, the Javanese cat looks like a Siamese cat but has a silky, single-layer coat of medium length and a stunning plumed tail. The head is wedge-shaped, the eyes are deep blue, and the large ears represent the Siamese influence markedly. The Javanese cat can have red and cream, tortoiseshell, or lynx points outside of the traditional Siamese-colored markings, or can show the Balinese color points of chocolate, blue, seal, or lilac, similar to the Siamese. In adulthood, the Javanese cat weighs between 5 and 10 pounds, with females slightly smaller, usually between 5 and 7 pounds.

Get ready to be entertained – and to have your feline companion (make that child) demand your constant attention. The Javanese cat is exceedingly loving, very intelligent, and noticeably vocal. This cat loves to play, will demand attention at every moment, and will follow you around the house to get it. Frequently compared to similar cats, this breed is considered by many to be identical to the Siamese except for coat color and length. Although it vocalizes at a somewhat lower volume than the Siamese, it is every bit as assertive.

When your cat talks to you, be prepared to listen – because it will most certainly expect you to! This adorable cat makes eye contact and implores you to pay close attention – truly conversing with you as if you should understand cat language.

Fortunately, the Javanese cat is as loving as it is intelligent. Not a difficult pet to have as long as you are willing to give it a special place in your life, it will wait patiently for you to return home from work, if you must. Just make sure you shower your cat with plenty of love once you get home. It's also wise to get another cat – another Javanese cat if possible, but another of the feline persuasion would be just fine, too – to keep your pet company so that it won’t feel abandoned. While you may enjoy having a cat that is highly entertaining, extraordinarily vocal, and athletically gifted, if you don't have that much time to spend with your pet, it's wise to get another, more independent breed. The Javanese cat truly must have a lot of time to interact with you, or will suffer the consequences of despondency otherwise.

One thing of note: The Javanese cat is a great jumper. This is not usually a problem in cat households with owners who understand that cats will be… well, cats, but it's something to keep in mind if you're not used to having a cat around. In case you are not aware, cats have "staff," not "owners," and even a very loving and attentive breed such as the Javanese cat will not necessarily always abide by your rules.

Proper Environment
As with most cats, life in an apartment or a house is equally acceptable. A single devoted owner or a large active family will also suffice as long as the cat receives the attention it needs.The Javanese cat is very fond of children and even other pets (including dogs) as long as all parties respect its authority.

Although the Javanese cat is a mixed breed rather than pedigreed cat, it's still prone to some health difficulties similar to those that affect the Siamese. Health problems, some of which are rare, include the effects of protein deposits in body organs, especially the liver; crossed eyes; genetic heart defects; asthma or bronchial difficulties; gastrointestinal disorders; progressive retinal atrophy; a tendency to overgroom themselves which causes hair loss; and involuntary rapid eye movement caused by a neurological disorder. With proper veterinary care and treatment for any disorders, the average lifespan for the Javanese cat is 10 to 15 years.

You'll be pleased to know that because the Javanese cat does not have a thick downy undercoat, its beautiful, silky coat is very easy to care for. You shouldn't need to bathe your pet (do so very rarely if at all) and a thorough combing with a stainless steel comb should be enough to remove loose hair, twice a week. Brush the teeth daily if possible, or at least once a week. If the eyes have any discharge, wipe them with a damp cloth, and check ears for dirt every week; clean with cotton balls dipped in mild solution, not cotton swabs.
