History and Origins

The Burmese cat, with its roots deeply embedded in Southeast Asia, is believed to have originated from Burma (now Myanmar). The breed's journey to the Western world began in the early 20th century when a small, brown cat named Wong Mau was brought to America. Wong Mau's unique appearance sparked interest, leading to a breeding program that established the Burmese breed as we know it today. Renowned for its rich, sable coat and striking golden eyes, the Burmese cat has become a beloved pet worldwide, cherished for its elegant appearance and engaging personality.

Personality

Burmese cats are known for their affectionate, playful, and sociable nature. They thrive on interaction with humans and often form strong bonds with their families, showing a preference for being in the company of their loved ones. Burmese cats are known to be vocal, communicating with their owners in a soft, sweet voice to express their needs or desires. Their intelligent and curious disposition makes them delightful companions, always ready to participate in activities or cuddle up for some affection.

Nutrition and Feeding

A balanced diet is crucial for the health and well-being of a Burmese cat. These energetic felines require high-quality cat food that is rich in protein to support their muscular build and active lifestyle. Portion control and a consistent feeding schedule can help prevent obesity, a common issue in less active or older Burmese cats. Fresh, clean water should always be available, and treats should be given sparingly to maintain optimal health and weight.

Grooming and Care

Burmese cats boast a short, sleek coat that requires minimal grooming, making them an ideal choice for individuals seeking a low-maintenance pet. A weekly brushing is sufficient to remove loose fur and maintain the coat's natural shine. Regular dental hygiene, including brushing their teeth, and keeping their nails trimmed are essential aspects of their care. Burmese cats also require periodic ear cleaning to prevent wax build-up and potential infections.

Specific Needs

Burmese cats are generally healthy but can be predisposed to certain genetic conditions such as craniofacial defects and hypokalemia. Regular veterinary check-ups are vital to monitor their health and catch any potential issues early. It's also important to provide a stimulating environment with plenty of toys and activities to keep them mentally and physically active, preventing boredom and promoting overall well-being.

Training

Burmese cats are highly trainable due to their intelligent and eager-to-please nature. They respond well to positive reinforcement techniques such as treats and praise, making it possible to teach them tricks, use a scratching post, and even walk on a leash. Early socialization and consistent training can help mold their behavior, making them well-adjusted and sociable pets that can adapt to various environments and situations.

Need to Know

Prospective Burmese cat owners should be aware of the breed's need for companionship and interaction. They do not like being left alone for extended periods and can become lonely or distressed if neglected. Understanding their health risks and providing a nurturing environment are key to ensuring a long, happy life with a Burmese cat. Their affectionate nature and playful demeanor make them perfect companions for families, singles, and seniors alike, offering warmth and joy to any home.

Purebredkitties has been absolutely wonderful. They made everything so easy and stress-free. Adoption specialist Kim A was fantastic, always going the extra mile to help me. She even responded to my email at 3 am her time! 😊 This whole experience has been truly heartwarming and rewarding.

Our experience with Purebredkitties was wonderful! Communication was great, and we even got to FaceTime with our kitten before bringing her home. She was exactly as we expected and is already doing great with our family after just two days. One small note is that pedigree papers weren't included and cost extra, which was a bit pricey since she arrived spayed. Overall, even though it was expensive, it was worth it. The quality and size of our kitten are amazing!

The whole experience of adopting a pet with this fantastic team has been nothing short of wonderful. Now, I have the joy of being a devoted pet mom to a gorgeous kitten I named Princess. I'm already looking forward to adopting another fur baby with Maria's help in the future. I'm absolutely thrilled and can't thank you all enough!

Proud mom of four Sphynx kitties! I adopted all of my adorable feline friends from Maria at purebredkitties.com, and I couldn’t be happier. Each one is a treasure, and working with Maria has been an absolute delight!

The whole journey to bring our fluffy bundle of joy home was fantastic. Maria is incredibly kind and always ready to answer all our questions. I really appreciate how seriously they take the health of the cats. Our kitten arrived with a minor case of the sniffles, likely from the airport travel, but it was easily and quickly resolved. Plus, the video call we had to meet our little guy beforehand was a wonderful way to get a glimpse of his personality and feel confident in our decision. I'm definitely recommending Purebred Kitties to all my friends who are looking to get their own Maine Coon.

I recently welcomed my second Sphynx from Purebred Kitties, and just like my first experience, everything went perfectly. This time around was just as smooth and delightful. I adore both of my cats—they're healthy, have amazing personalities, and are absolutely precious.
