Overview

The Burmilla is the result of an “oops” breeding between a Burmese and a Chinchilla Persian, hence the cute name. First created in 1981, he earned recognition as a breed in 1987, a relatively fast ascension up the cat breed ladder of creation. Because he’s the result of a cross between a shorthaired and a longhaired cat, the Burmilla comes in two coat lengths: short and semilong. It’s not uncommon for longhaired kittens to be born to shorthaired mothers.

This is a people-loving cat with a great disposition. He can be a gentle and devoted companion to adults and respectful children alike. True to his Persian heritage, he isn’t excessively active but is typically playful and affectionate.

Children & Other Pets
The gentle and playful Burmilla is well suited to life with families with children and cat-friendly dogs. He can learn tricks, enjoys interactive toys, and loves the attention he receives from children who treat him politely and with respect. Supervise young children and show them how to pet the cat nicely. Instead of holding or carrying the cat, have them sit on the floor and pet him. Always introduce any pets, even other cats, slowly and in a controlled setting.
