Is a Burmese cat right for You?
The Burmese cat is playful and rambunctious as a kitten and typically grows into a friendly, adaptable adult. They are very intelligent and have been known to fetch. They thrive on human companionship and are often described as lap-cats or ‘velcro’ kitties. They are not well-suited to an outdoor lifestyle. They are good with children and make a great family pet.
