Burmese Cats & Burmese Cat Breeders

The Burmese is a domesticated cat breed that is split into two groups: the American Burmese and the British Burmese.  It is sometimes confused with the Birman.  While many cat registries do not recognize the difference between the two, those that do formally refer to the the British Burmese as the European Burmese.


Burmese cats are well known for being highly intelligent, very friendly with humans and enjoy company.  They are a people-oriented breed and form strong bonds with their owners.  Because of this, Burmese are not as independent as some other breeds and need a reasonable amount of human attention.  They should not be left alone for extended periods of time.  Burmese are also very vocal,  like the Siamese but have softer, sweeter meows.  


The Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) breed information on the Burmese implies that all survival instinct of flight or fight seems to have been bred out of them. However, other sources note that, while rarely aggressive with humans, Burmese cats can defend themselves quite well against other cats, even those larger than themselves.


Originally, all Burmese cats were dark brown or sable in colour but are now available in a wide variety of colours including blue.  The coat is glossy, with a satin-like finish and does not need additional grooming.   Burmese are live longer than many other breeds, often reaching 16 to 18 years of age. They are small to medium in size and usually weigh around 4–6 kg.


Burmese have a number of dog-like characteristics, and can be taught to play fetch and tag. The breed is comfortable with dogs and children.  They are suitable as an indoor breed of cat and will usually stay more affectionate if kept indoors. Burmese keep their kitten-like interests and energy throughout their adulthood.


"Blue" cat breeds have become increasingly popular and given the differences - particularly in temperament - see this article for more information if you're interested in the blue burmese - British Shorthair, Russian, Burmese or Korat - Which Blue Cat is that?
