Attractive, gentle, and devoted.
Where I'm From
This ancient breed has long been described as the 'sacred cat of Burma'. Delve into a Birman's past and you'll find mystery and intrigue.
A Buddhist legend claims the breed originated in a Buddhist temple. When one of the priests was murdered, a blue eyed goddess magically transformed all the temple cats into her likeness.
The less romantic version is that breed was developed by burmese priests.
Over time this exceptional looking cat has become popular with pet lovers all over the world.
What I Look Like
The Birman is a stunning looking cat, and easily distinguishable by its deep blue eyes and pure white feet.
They have long, silky fur, with the colour ranging from blues through to lilacs, chocolate and tabby. The cats have darker colouring on their face, ears, legs and tail.
Kittens are born white and will develop colour as they grow.
How I Act
The Birman has a sweet gentle appearance, and a temperament to match. They enjoy company, and are super affectionate and easy to handle, so make an ideal family pet.
Having a Birman in the house is like having a furry little four legged person around! They love to get involved in whatever you're doing.
Am I the pet for you?
Birmans are delightful pets, with an even temperament and easy going nature. They are relatively quiet but will let you know when they want attention.
They fit easily into busy households, get on well with other pets and are very adaptable to any sized house or apartment.
Abyssinian Cats are sometimes accused of being aloof and treating their owners like servants. Abyssinians are the exact opposite!This devoted and affectionate cat thrives on company. In fact Abyssinians are so loyal they will become depressed if they are ignored.
Can Cats Find True Love? You’ll find that cats may not show it, but there’s a lot that they love. As cats are territorial, they appear to form relationships with other cats when they feel there is no competition over food or other resources. Kittens form social relationships with other kittens they meet in the litter, whereas two cats that don’t share the same mother, takes much more time to ...

Hi.My Name is Rachel, and I'm needing advice as to what dog would best suit me. I have a physical disability, I can walk and drive a car. I use crutches when I'm outdoors, but when I'm at home a I can walk around without them. I wear a caliper on my left leg. I have always wanted to have a dog as a companion, but I am not sure what breed would be best. My activity levels are ok, but I couldn't say that I am able to go for long walks. I have a park across from me, that is dog friendly. I live alone now, and I am 52. I hope someone can help me.SincerelyRachel Simpson
Our dog has a phobia of the heating system clicking on and off. It's gotten to the stage where he won't enter the lounge (where the noise is most audible) & sit with us, something he loves doing, he just stands shaking in kitchen. I've looked at a few things like a calming spray, collar etc but I'm just not sure what would be best. Any advice
