The Breed's History
The first ‘Burmilla’ was the result of an accidental mating in 1981, in the United kingdom, between a Chinchilla Persian male and Lilac Burmese female. The resulting offspring, 4 females and 1 male, were so impressive with their spectacular look and superb temperament that it was decided to start a breeding program.
The development of the Burmilla breed began in Australia in 1994.
The temperament of the Burmilla is quite exceptional. The easy going relaxed nature of the Chinchilla mixed with the playful and mischievous nature of the Burmese gives them a unique personality.
They are a smart, loving and intelligent cat with personality and charm.
They love to interact with the family and other pets, are extremely affectionate and intelligent and learn quickly, can be easily trained and taught tricks.
They are quite happy amusing themselves when left alone – with toys, a scratching post and warm bed.
Wonderful with children and other pets , they are trusting, tolerant and eager to please.
They make great companions for any age group and are best suited for indoor living.
