European Burmese

Details

It is very difficult not to immediately dislike Burmese cats. Burmese are intelligent and playful, and they are incredibly sociable with humans and quickly learn to play interactive games, such as fetch and catch. They also make excellent ambassadors for anyone who claims to be “non-cat”, thanks to their affectionate, almost canine personality and their giant, expressive eyes, which make Burmese cats look like they’re straight out of a Margaret Keane painting. So this will differ slightly, depending on where you live. In fact, there are two Burmese cats. Although they come from the same stock and most cat registries do not consider them to be genetically distinct breeds, there are distinct differences between the American Burmese and the European Burmese.

This will differ slightly, depending on where you live. In fact, there are two Burmese cats. Although they come from the same stock and most cat registries do not consider them to be genetically different breeds, there are distinct differences between the American Burmese and the European Burmese.
The European Burmese (sometimes called “traditional”) is the slimmer of the two, with a wedge-shaped head, small pointed ears and almond-shaped eyes. The American (or “contemporary”) Burmese, on the other hand, is noticeably stockier, with a broader head, slightly broader ears at the base than the European, and much rounder, more expressive eyes. Originally, all Burmese were sable coloured, but by the mid-20th century, Burmese cats were seen in colours such as fawn, blue and lilac. Today, the British standard recognises the solid colours brown, chocolate, blue, lilac, red and cream, as well as the tortoiseshell pattern on a brown, chocolate, blue or lilac base, while the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) standard still recognises the Burmese only in solid colours sable, blue, champagne (chocolate) and platinum (lilac).
