This medium-sized cat has strikingly green eyes that are large and outlined with black, as if it were wearing eyeliner. Its ears, meanwhile, are medium to large, with a slightly rounded tip. The Burmilla’s main attraction, is its soft, dense silver coat, which may be tipped or shaded in the following colors: black, blue, chocolate, lilac, red, caramel, apricot, cream, black tortie, blue tortie, chocolate tortie, lilac tortie or caramel tortie.
The Burmilla Cat sheds a lot and should be groomed at least once a week. Brush it thoroughly to remove dead hair and, if its ears are dirty, clean with a damp cloth. In addition, their teeth should also be brushed once a week. They are generally healthy animals however, but can be prone to diseases such as Polycystic Kidney Disease, which causes the formation of cysts in the kidneys and often leads to renal failure.
Life expectancy: 13-15 years
Originating country: United Kingdom
Temperament: Affectionate, Social, Boisterous.
Interesting fact: The Burmilla was created in 1981 from an accidental mating between a female Lilac Burmese and a male Silver Chinchilla, both of which belonged to Baroness Miranda von Kirchberg.
