ORIENTAL SHORTHAIR (OSH) - ORIENTAL LONGHAIR (OLH) - SIAMESE (SIA) - BALINESE (BAL)



ABOUT THE BREEDS

Home

Siamese, Oriental Shorthairs, Balinese, Oriental Longhairs.
These four breeds are closely related and can even turn up in the same litter.
Siamese and Oriental Shorthairs have short fur and the difference between them lies in the Siamese's blue eyes and particular coat colour, which is darker at the extremities (nose, ears, paws, tail) than on the rest of the body (This type of colouring can also be found in other breeds, such as Birmans or Ragdolls.).
Oriental Shorthairs, on the other hand, are coloured right through, have patterns or one or more colours, can be with or without silver/smoke, and always have green eyes.
Balinese and Oriental Longhairs only differ from Siamese and Oriental Shorthairs in that they have a longer coat: both breeds have semi-long, close-lying, silky fur and bushy tails. More simply, Balinese are Siamese with longer hair and Oriental Longhairs/OLH the longhair variety of Oriental Shorthairs/OSH.
