Short description

The Javanese is a very loyal and loving companion, that follows her owners like a dog in order to get the cuddles that she wants. Therefore, she does not like to be left alone, a second cat is recommended. If she does not get enough attention she can become quite the diva, and communicates her discomfort quite loudly. Overall, she is very communicative and needs a lot of attention.
