            Are you looking for the perfect family pet? The Birman cat definitely fits into this category.  The Birman has been around since the early 1900’s and was originally from Asia.  This cat was known as the sacred cat of Burma.

          Birman kittens are born all white but don’t stay that way for long; soon after they are born, their coats begin to change. Their coats remain light with a golden cast, but they begin to develop characteristically dark points on the cooler points of their bodies: the face, legs, and tail. They have golden faces and exquisite features.  Their points come in seal, blue, chocolate and lilac. Their paws remain white and look like four perfect gloves. These beautiful cats have round, widely-spaced, gorgeous baby-blue eyes. They have a full chin with a heavy jaw and are generally very healthy cats.

            Birman Cats are large, stocky cats with perfect, silky coats; not too thick, and they don’t mat, which makes for minimal grooming.  The Birman breed is absolutely exceptional. With their soulful beautiful blue eyes, and their extremely gentle demeanor, this breed is one of the best. Not only do they have unique markings but come in a vast number of colors such as seal, blue, lilac, chocolate, tortie, red, and cream. They can come in a solid pattern or dramatic lynx pattern. No matter the color they will all have beautiful white paws. These kitties are extremely easy to groom with no undercoat, and no matting issues. The Birman breed can be traced back to England, France, Australia, and Germany. These kitties are known for their flare for drama, adventurous spirit, and wonderful personalities. A very sociable and companionable breed indeed!

            Not only are these kittens divine, but they have a wonderful disposition. They are very sweet-natured, well-mannered cats with a serene disposition. These cats are a popular choice for families because they are absolutely wonderful with children, showing your kids love and affection. They are very gentle but playful, but are also quiet cats that are unobtrusive when you don’t have time to play with them. Overall, the Birman Cat has a lot to offer.
