History and Origins

The European Burmese cat, a variant distinct from the American Burmese, traces its origins back to Burma but was developed into its current form in Europe. The breed’s journey began when a small, brown female cat named Wong Mau, thought to be the first Burmese, was brought to America in the 1930s. Breeding programs in the UK and across Europe diverged from their American counterparts, leading to differences in body type and color range. Recognized for its elegant, moderate body and wider variety of colors, the European Burmese became a beloved breed for its history steeped in mystique and its charming characteristics.

Personality

European Burmese cats are renowned for their outgoing, affectionate nature. They possess an incredible capacity for companionship, often forming strong bonds with their human families. Known for their playful, yet gentle demeanor, they integrate well into households, including those with children and other pets. European Burmese cats are vocal, expressing their needs and desires, but their voices are softer and less demanding than some other breeds. They thrive on interaction and affection, making them ideal pets for those seeking an engaging feline friend.

Nutrition and Feeding

The European Burmese's sleek physique and active nature require a balanced diet rich in high-quality proteins and nutrients. It’s essential to feed them with age-appropriate food that supports their energy levels and maintains their health. While they are not particularly prone to obesity, portion control and regular meal times help prevent weight gain. Fresh water should always be accessible, and treats can be used sparingly as part of a healthy lifestyle. Consulting with a veterinarian can ensure their nutritional needs are met effectively.

Grooming and Care

With their short, satin-like coats, European Burmese cats are relatively low-maintenance in terms of grooming. A weekly brushing is sufficient to remove loose hair and maintain the coat’s shine. They shed minimally, making them a good choice for those who prefer less fur around the house. Regular grooming sessions also provide an opportunity to check for any skin issues and to bond with your cat. In addition to coat care, maintaining clean ears, trimmed nails, and good dental hygiene are vital for their overall health.

Specific Needs

European Burmese cats are generally healthy but can be predisposed to certain genetic conditions, such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Regular veterinary check-ups are crucial for monitoring their health and catching any issues early. They have a strong need for social interaction and do not like being left alone for long periods. Providing a stimulating environment with toys, scratching posts, and, if possible, the companionship of another pet can help keep them happy and engaged.

Training

The intelligence and eager-to-please attitude of European Burmese cats make them highly trainable. They respond well to positive reinforcement, such as praise and treats, and can learn a variety of commands and tricks. Early socialization is beneficial, exposing them to different people, animals, and environments to promote well-rounded behavior. Litter training is typically straightforward due to their clean nature. Training not only stimulates their mind but also strengthens the bond between cat and owner.

Need to Know

Prospective owners of European Burmese cats should be prepared for a highly social and affectionate breed that thrives on companionship. Understanding their care requirements, including grooming, nutrition, and health monitoring, is key to providing a loving home. These cats are best suited to environments where they can be part of the family and receive plenty of attention and interaction. With the right care, European Burmese cats make loyal, loving companions, enriching the lives of those who choose to welcome them into their homes.

Adopting our new kitten from Purebred Kitties was a wonderful experience. The process was smooth and clear, leaving no room for confusion. Alona's kindness and genuine care shone through as she promptly answered all my questions. Thanks to the whole team, our new furry family member is now home and already cherished beyond words!

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.
