The Burmese is cat is thought to have been originally brown in colour but years of the selective breeding of the Burmese cat has meant that today the Burmese cat can be found in many different colours including black, lilac and even ginger.
The Burmese cat is best known for its beautiful soft fur, which is normally in incredible condition. The Thai name for the Burmese cat is subh-bha-lak , which means fortunate, beautiful and splendid in appearance.
The Burmese cat is a very intelligent animal and is constantly curious and inquisitive in its surroundings. The Burmese cat is also one of the more vocal breeds of domestic cat, along with one of the most elegant.
