Overview

The Burmilla is a breed of domestic cat that was created in the United Kingdom in the early 1980s by breeding a Burmese with a Chinchilla Persian. The result is a cat with a beautiful, shimmering silver coat and bright green eyes.

Burmillas have a medium-sized body that is muscular and athletic. Their coat is short and plush, and comes in a range of colors, including silver, black, blue, chocolate, and lilac. The distinctive feature of the breed is their sparkling silver coat, which is created by the silver tipping on each hair. Their eyes are large and expressive, and can be green or gold.

In terms of personality, Burmillas are known for their affectionate and loving nature. They are social cats that enjoy interacting with their owners and getting attention. They are also playful and active, and love to explore their surroundings and play with toys. They are intelligent cats that are easy to train, and they adapt well to new environments.

Burmillas are generally healthy cats, with a life expectancy of 12-16 years. They are not prone to any specific health issues, but like all cats, they require regular veterinary check-ups and preventative care.

Overall, the Burmilla is a beautiful and affectionate breed that makes a great pet for families and individuals. They are easy to care for, adapt well to different living situations, and have a fun-loving and adventurous personality. Whether you're looking for a lap cat or a playful companion, the Burmilla is a great choice for any cat lover.
