The Burmese is thought to originate from Burma, Thailand and Malaya and is renowned for its beautifully soft, glossy coat – stroke it until your heart’s content. Cats are not always known for their active role in family life, but these furry felines love being the centre of attention. Despite their graceful demeanor they are playful pets and enjoy being sociable. Originally Burmese cats were often a rich brown color but now there are a whole spectrum of colors including gray-blue, orange, cream, gray-pink and even mixed e.g. brown tortie (brown with a hint of red).
