Playful, affectionate, sweet-natured
Where I'm From
A cat resembling a Burmese is mentioned in documents dating as early as the 1350's. But it's generally acepted that the Burmese we know today is a descendent of one female, Wang Mau, which was imported from Burma to the United States in the early 20th century.
What I Look Like
Burmese are medium sized, compact cats, with a wedge shaped head and large, golden eyes. Their coat is short and silky, ranging in colour from rich browns through to blues, lilacs and cream.
How I Act
A Burmese is an ideal pet if you want an affectionate and attentive little companion. They're smart and gentle and thrive on company. They don't enjoy being left alone for too long.
A Burmese will always seek out a lap and they like plenty of pats from their owners.
This breed will display kitten like playfulness even when they are adults.

Can Cats Find True Love? You’ll find that cats may not show it, but there’s a lot that they love.

My usually calm indoor desexed Burmese has become very distressed the past few days. He's never hissed or howled in his whole life and now he can't stop. He'll still settle on my lap and even purr and let me rub his belly but whenever my other cat (his best pal, since he first came to us 4 years ago) he gets all tense and starts howling. My other cat doesn't even react, he actually tries to comfort the distressed one by coming up and tries to clean him but the stressed one hisses and won't let him come near. It's such a change in personality and I hope he can calm down because I'd hate to separate them! They've been best buds for years! Only ever play fighting, never anything like this

2 weeks ago whilst we were in Fiji we rescued an abandoned puppy that we estimate is about 3 months old. She was starving, filthy, covered in ticks and could barely stand or walk. We fed her, washed her, removed all ticks and just gave her love. We called her Pretzel as she was so skinny when we found her that all her bones were sticking out and her hip bones looked like a big twisted pretzel and her long skinny legs looked like Pretzel sticks. Our intention was to find her a home in Fiji but after a week or so she had gained weight, but we noticed that her left hip bone was still protruding and that when she walked we noticed that her left back foot turned out slightly. Also, when she ran she would use both back legs together and hop like a bunny. We took her to an animal shelter in Fiji called Animals Fiji and they examined her and advised that they thought it might be dislocated. They X-rayed her and then sedated her to try and manipulate the bone back into the socket. This was unsuccessful. The vet advised that it appeared that the end of the bone where the ball should be round was malformed either from a trauma/injury when young or by birth. He advised that he does not have the equipment in Fiji to treat her properly and that she would need surgery to correct the bone and to tighten the ligaments to her support her leg. We are exporting her to Australia on the 7th of March and are trying to raise some funds to assist us. We are hoping that you can assistance to find a Vet in Melbourne that could assist with the operation at a reasonable price.
