The Burmese kitten is a strong, athletic and elegant short-haired cat. They have small bodies which carry surprising weight for their size and have often been described as “a brick wrapped in silk.” Burmese cats have fine, glossy coats which are very short and satin-like in texture and require very little grooming. The Burmese is a compactly built cat with a small round head and wide-set eyes which are yellow or golden. They come in an array of colors including brown, blue, chocolate, lilac, cream, sable, platinum and champagne. Burmese make wonderful pets for every family.
