Burmese Cat The Burmese cat, or Sacred Birman, is one of the very ancient breeds, which became famous several centuries ago. Nowadays, being one of the most popular pets among all mustachioed and tailed ones, the mysterious Burma never ceases to amaze its owners, revealing more and more new facets of its character. Having once stopped your choice on a Burmese cat, you can be sure of its correctness. Burma is obedient and gentle, with good, almost aristocratic manners. Sociability is combined in it with an expressive mind. Burma is friendly and very curious. When guests appear in the house, she easily makes contact, not at all afraid of new people. Representatives of this breed will especially please those who like to take cats in their arms and on their knees: you will not encounter resistance – rather the opposite.
History of the Burmese cat breed
Difference Between Burmese and Burmese
Despite the similar names, the Burmese cat differs in many ways from the Burmese. The most characteristic feature of the first breed is a silky coat, as well as color – there are no white “gloves” and “socks”, dark marks on the muzzle and limbs. Burmese breed has brown, blue, sable and other types of colors.
Most attention should be paid to the fur of the animal, but this is not difficult. The undercoat of Burmese cats is not thick, and the main pile is elastic, outer. Therefore, tangles do not form even without constant combing. Bathing is permissible only in extreme cases, if the coat is very dirty. But the Burmese do not like walking, so they rarely get dirty. In addition, they are very clean, licked often and thoroughly. During molting, brushing cats is enough once every three days. Feeding is not a problem either.
The cat itself is able to choose its own diet. Burmese, unlike any other breed, is distinguished by legibility in food and its quantity. The animal will not eat more than it needs and what it does not like. Most Burmese do not like ready-made food and canned food. It is better to feed them with natural products with a high level of protein (cottage cheese, meat, fish).
Do not forget about the personality traits of the Burmese cat. It is important for such a cat to have its own space – a sunbed, a basket, a house. Such a haven should be placed low, otherwise the cat will simply ignore it. Immediately accustom to the scratching post, otherwise the Birman cat, sacred and, as a result, wayward, will choose another place for this purpose (your sofa, for example).
