Overview

The Burmese cat is a domestic cat breed originating from Thailand. Originally, the Burmese cat was dark brown in colour but now they come in a variety of colours. They’re a small to medium-sized cat breed, weighing around 4-6kg. They’re well-built despite their size.

The Burmese cat is strong and athletic and has a wonderful temperament and relaxed attitude to life. This unique cat breed is also known to have a dog like personality and loves to entertain themselves by following their owners around their home and be involved in everything they do.

The male Burmese cat tends to be larger in size than the female Burmese, but they both show the exact same qualities and kind, loving nature. This particular cat breed is very popular and an amazing choice for a loving companion.

This cat breed is highly intelligent and has lots of energy. Often referred to as an extrovert, the Burmese needs to be kept busy as they have an active mind and become bored very easily. They love to explore but will never stray too far away from their home.

If you do plan on owning a Burmese, it is worthwhile investing in lots of mind-engaging toys to prevent them from becoming bored and potentially destructive around the home.
