The Burmese was developed in the United States in the 1930’s. The foundation breeds were the Burma cat and the Siamese and became listed in The Cat Fanciers’ Association registry.

It is a medium sized feline, muscular with a sturdy bone structure. Though dense in weight this cat should be slender in stature. The head is round with expressive eyes and the ears are rounded at the tips. The coat is short, flat and is allowed four colors, champagne, sable, blue and platinum.

Kittens are quite playful and should only be purchased from a reputable breeder. The environment should be clean. The kittens should be curious and healthy. The future owner should be sure to see the parents of the litter to be sure the female has not been over bred.

These cats make good family pets and will tolerate a family dog. The Burmese loves people males are more docile than females who tend to take center stage.
