Can anyone tell me the difference between a Ragdoll and a Balinese kitty?
When I saw the Catster COTD today, Louis Cheng-McKenzie, I thought he looked a LOT like Pixel! I did a search for Ragdolls, and a LOT of them look like Pixel ~ at least in build, length of fur, even the attitudes in resting, sitting, standing. Is there a difference?
Thanks to all,
Katharine (& Pixel!)

Here are the links to the breed standards:
I am no expert on Ragdolls or Balinese but I have had two Siamese grace my life. It appears from a quick scan of the breed standards that a Balinese is a Siamese with a long coat. While a Ragdoll may have the coloring of a Balinese it is a bigger, heavier, larger boned, more muscular cat with a more rounded head (not the oriental wedge head) and oval eyes.
I hope this helps.
