This ancient, rare breed was originally found in Japan and throughout most of southeast Asia. Javanese have a long, silky coat, that comes in a variety of colors. These cats are ranked among the most intelligent and affectionate breeds of cat, and because of this they are known to become depressed if they are left alone too often.
These long, lanky cats have very sleek and powerful legs that make them very adept at running and leaping. They are generally very playful pets but they do however have a tendency to become overweight if they do not receive adequate exercise. Javanese are also quite vocal, and most will "talk" for no particular reason.
Javanese have a unique tail which looks like a pom-pom - the result of a distinctive combination of curves that is unique to each cat. The Javanese has a distinctive oriental look that is given by high cheekbones and slightly almond-shaped eyes. This exquisite cat comes in a rainbow of colors and coat patterns in both long-haired and short-haired varieties.
