About the breed

A medium sized cat of foreign type with friendly and determined disposition.  They come in several colours: brown, blue, chocolate, lilac, red, cream, brown tortie, chocolate tortie, blue tortie and lilac tortie.  They should have large amber eyes, but some tend to the greener chartreuse.  The expression is particular to the Burmese.  The coat is very short and flat with a sheen.  Burmese are very muscular and are much heavier than they look.  The males can grow quite big.

My breeding policies

Although I love the look of many top winning cats, I see many small cats and fear the size of the breed is diminishing.  When I bought a new queen I specifically looked for one from old lines with large cats in her immediate pedigree.  Co-incidentally she had lovely eye colour.  We had several litters and produced kittens with fantastic temperament and excellent size.  
My breeding Burmese are tested for hypokalaemia.

My history with Burmese

I bought my first Burmese, a chocolate female, in 1997.  I bred Burmese and Burmillas from her.  Unfortunately this Burmese line came to an end when the daughter I kept developed pyometra and had to be spayed.  In 2005 I bought a blue female, and have been breeding large, well-grown litters of lovely temperament.  This girl is now spayed and I kept her brown daughter to breed forward with.  She followed in her mother's footsteps and bred healthy litters.  However, she is now neutered and we have recently acquired her grand-daughter.
