The Javanese is a longhair breed of domestic cat developed in North America. The name Javanese has nothing to do with Java, Indonesia. The only relationship this breed has with Asia is its close relationship to the Siamese. The only differences between them are the colors and the long hair of the Javanese.They are medium-sized cats with muscular body, wedge-shaped head, large ears and medium sized almond-shaped eyes in deep blue color. The hind legs are higher than the front legs and oval paws. Their coat is long with a silky texture and a plumed tail. Their coat comes in a variety of colors, including red, cream, lynx point, seal lynx point and seal-tortie point.
The Javanese are intelligent, sociable, playful, loyal and communicative. They create special bonds with their owners, following them all around and participating in any of their activities. They have the personality of the Siamese cats that is why they are demanding ones. They need your attention, your care to pet them and your time to interact with them. If you do not have the required time, you better not adopt a Javanese, because without attention, some kind of activity or entertainment, they would not be happy.
They get along well with children, because they would keep them busy somehow and get their attention easier, as well as with other pets, especially another one cat of their kind.
They are a healthy breed in general, facing the same health issues like the Siamese: breathing problems, gastrointestinal problems, crossed eyes. Annual vaccination is absolutely necessary.You need to brush and comb this cat at least once per week, keep their litter box clean, because with their longhaired coat they are prone to become dirty easier than other cats. This could result your Javanese cat stop using its litter box. Nail trimming, ear cleaning and teeth brushing would be great.
The most important thing you should know before you adopt one: this cat really needs you to be happy. He hates to be left alone and will be unhappy if he doesn’t get the attention he needs. So, think twice if you can meet a Javanese cat’s requirements or not.
