Burmese
Facts & Advice

A sensitive soul who craves company

Playful and intelligent, the Burmese cat craves company and can show great sensitivity to its owner's moods and feelings. This elegant breed is easily recognised by its striking golden-yellow eyes and wide-set ears. The Burmese is kept happy with lots of attention and plenty of cuddles, and some even like other cats for company.
To ensure your Burmese cat is protected in the case of an emergency, take a look at our cat insurance policies.

Coat: Short and glossy, so no grooming is required, but Burmese cats thrive on the human contact that brushing provides.
Life span: On average, 15+ years. The Burmese is an exceptionally long-lived breed and will often reach 18 or beyond.
