Burmese basic information
If the Burmese's personality does not win you over they keep another trump card up their sleeve. Their sleek athletic bodies and silky dark coat give these felines a grace and beauty to compliment their tenderness. The Burmese tends to be a stocky cat with well-formed muscular development and short legs. They are a medium sized breed but can be deceptively heavy. A round head with a short muzzle plays a wonderful backdrop for their hypnotically large golden eyes. The silky short coat of the Burmese is very fine and tends to lie close to the body. The traditional Burmese wears a solid dark sable brown coat, but is also accepted in champagne, blue and platinum. Burmese that are not sable are often referred to as Malayan. A pear shaped face with limited nose break usually is associated with traditional Burmese, while contemporary cats have a more rounded face and short pug like nose. With their large brilliant eyes and silky coat the Burmese strut gracefully into the hearts of many.
