Bijou is a Balinese/Siamese mix with long silky hair and bright blue eyes. We got him at 6 weeks, but went through many names before we settled on his; and the reason we waited to name him was because we wanted to give him the perfect name.
He loved to "kiss" us on our faces, so we named him Bijou which is French for either "kisses" or "jewels" according to how you spelled it, and it was exactly right. His eyes look like bright blue jewels and he still kisses us all the time so there ya go!Reply from Liz (Editor):
What a gorgeous cat, he looks like he's sitting on a throne! I am a real sucker for long haired cats and Siamese cats - Bijou is the perfect combination! I love his name too - very well chosen. Many thanks for your photo and contribution.
