More About The Burmilla
The Shaded, or Burmilla, is the original Asian variety and originated in Britain in 1981, from an accidental mating of a female Lilac European Burmese (Bambino Lilac Faberge), and a male Chinchilla Silver Persian (Jemari Sanquist). The combined quality of their kittens, their spectacular look, and their superb temperament prompted a controlled breeding program to establish a new breed. Standards emerged in 1984 and the breed was granted championship status in Britain in 1990’s.
The Burmilla is a gentle, intelligent and extremely affectionate cat with an exceptional temperament. Burmillas are very extroverted, social cats that love their humans, both adults and children. They also have a very confident, playful and inquisitive nature. The Burmilla will delight humans with their antics and games and most learn to fetch quite easily. They also adjust well to other pet animals. This breed is a wonderful companion with irresistible qualities.
The Burmilla coat is short, dense and silky in texture so general grooming of the coat is minimal. The short coat of the Burmilla can mat or tangle but it is easy to groom. Comb them once or twice a week with a stainless steel comb to keep their coat beautiful.
The Burmilla can be prone to kidney disease and allergies.
