The generally accepted explanation for the origin of this breed is a natural mutation for long hair in the Siamese cat breed. In fact, this coat length is the primary difference between the Balinese and Siamese.
Although longhaired Siamese kittens had certainly been making occasional appearances in litters, the first real breeding program for this breed didn’t begin until the 1950s.
