What is the special trait of this breed?
Your fluffy shadow
The social Burmese is extremely human-oriented and will not move from your side. A great mate, always there for you. It will always make sure to be nearby and needs social contact throughout the day. Alone at home comes close to punishment for a Burmese, which is why they should never be a single cat.
They like living together with fellow cats, dogs or children and will blend effortlessly into existing structures, if everything is prepared accordingly.
Burmese cats are mostly balanced and calm, however they will always be happy to play – even at an advanced age. With an imposing voice, they will make sure their wishes are heard – they may not be quite as dominant as a Siamese, but are definitely known as very audible communicators!
What are the unique traits of the Burmese?
As an Oriental beauty, the Burmese scores points with its looks alone. Fine-haired and shimmering, the short-haired coat has a silk-like quality and fits close to the body. The colour hues are unique to this breed. Ears and face are accentuated and the underbelly is of a brighter colour than the legs and back.
However, good things take their time and the little ones are initially of a very light colour after their birth. It takes up to 24 months until the respective parts have darkened and the coat has acquired its sophisticated look.
At exhibitions, the golden-eyed Burmese are winning most of the awards. Obviously also shape and expression play a role. According to “FIFe category 3 Bur (Burmese)”, the breed must have big, wide set eyes with a vivid and luminous shine to them.
