Flame Point Balinese?
by Beryl Brillant
(Lee, Maine USA)
We were given a beautiful long haired cat which we were told is a flame point Balinese. She is white with a muted flame color tail and ears, her fur is soft & feels like rabbit fur and her eyes are a pale blue turning to red when light hits them.
He name is Amber because of her coloring.
Thanks for sharing. Your cat does indeed look like a flame point Balinese. The fur looks dense and semi-long but the tail - fluffy and plumed, confirms for me that this is a long haired Siamese (which is what the Balinese essentially is).
There is a lot of discussion as to what is the true look. It is obvious: it has to be the "normal" appearance and Amber is just that.
You can see a Flame Point Siamese on this page.
One last point. You need papers - written evidence of pedigree - to prove that Amber is a purebred cat and only purebred Balinese cats can be called a "Balinese cat". I am sure you know that.
