Features of care for a cat of the Javanese breed

The Java breed of cats appeared relatively recently as a result of breeding measures to increase the number of colors of balinese, which, strictly speaking, was achieved. However, along with a variety of colors, the new cats received other significant differences in the form of a different head shape, large paw pads, a special structure of wool and a noticeable fluffy tail, which made it possible to distinguish them into a separate rare and expensive breed - yavanezy.

The price of a kitten depends on color, sex and pedigree, and starts from twenty thousand rubles. Of course, an animal without a pedigree and with exterior deficiencies can be purchased cheaper - for eight thousand, but you can just love it, but in order to exhibit and breed, you will have to fork out for at least a hundred thousand rubles. For several years, Russian breeders have been breeding this interesting breed of cats.

Historical data

Let's start with the "mythical", according to which the breed appeared on the island of Java,as a unique case of the birth of long-haired kittens in an ordinary short-haired animal, which was the impetus for the development of the breed, called the Javanese by place of origin. Objective and having evidence, two versions of breeding can be considered:

The experiments were carried out almost at the same time, so both options, European and American, is nothing but the same breed - yavanez. By the way, the name of the new breed is similar to the ancestor (balinese-yavanez).

External Data

The appearance of Javanese cats combines the features of the main ancestors - Balinese and Orientals, which gives them uniqueness and originality, and you can distinguish Yavanza from others by the following features:

  • various varied variations of colors;
  • prominent paw pads;
  • even triangular head;
  • unusual structure of wool;
  • outstanding fluffy tail.

This slender cat with a flexible and elegant, but strong muscular body. Limbs are proportional to the body, also elegant, however, like the tail with the neck. A medium-sized, triangular head with a straight, long nose, widely spread ears, large at the base, and almond-shaped, slanted eyes are green, less often blue.

Cats have a peculiar long and silky coat, which is gradually shortened towards the head, so the backside of the animal looks more fluffy. There are breed imperfections in the form:

  • round head, broad head or muzzle;

Animal traits

The nature of javanese is complicated, because they tend to be in the center of universal attention and adoration, but at the same time they have a strong attachment to their master. In addition, traits of Javanese cats include:

  • demanding and jealousy;
  • impatience and stubbornness;
  • thirst for leadership in the family and control over all households.

Yavanez will never be bored, even when left alone - he will be engaged in research. Therefore, when leaving home, he is advised to leave toys so that the apartment does not turn into ruins during the absence of the owners.When there is someone from the household at home, Yavanez will try to pull all attention to itself, armed with its own qualities - activity, playfulness and restlessness.

They are wayward animals, but trained in the simplest tricks. They quite easily perceive the harness and leash for walks on the street. They love open space and active games, which requires good living conditions in terms of footage.

They get along with other living beings, including dogs, with whom they can spend some of their energy. If you meticulously put everything in its place, like peace and quiet, then the Javanese cat is definitely not for you.

How to keep yavana?

Any action on Javana does require consultation with a physician.
