About the Burmese

The personality of the Burmese has led to their widespread popularity; they love people and are equally happy with children and other animals.

They are very confident, with great agility, often leaping high in the air to catch something. If the cat is to be left alone in the home for long periods of time, it is advisable to have another pet to keep it company.
