Burmese Cat

The Burmese cat, originating from Thailand, is a domestic cat breed developed in the United States and Britain. Although the two breeds are not considered separately, the way of breeding this cat by the U.S. and Britain are drastically different in standard. Head and body shape are what sets these two standards apart as the British is slender with a longer muzzle and the American is stockier with a flatter muzzle. Similarity can be found in the Burmese cat’s short, glossy coat, uniform color (with slight gradation), and large innocent eyes. The Burmese cat is social and energetic, maintaining kitten-like play well into adulthood.

The typical Burmese Cat has an overall height of 10.0”-12.0” (25-30 cm) and body length of 15.0”-18.0” (38-46 cm). An average Burmese weighs between 6-14 lb (3-6 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 16-18 years.
