Picture By Wikipedia.

The Birman cat, a breed nicknamed the The Birman cat, a breed nicknamed the "Sacred Cat of Burma," is medium-long haired with short ears.

Their eyes are blue and big, creating a very aesthetically pleasing cat.

Birman cats are loyal and will get along with any member of the family. They adjust well to other cats. In addition, Birman cats do not fully mature until they're three years old, so they stay in the kitten stage longer than other cats. Though their hair doesn't generally clump, children and adults will enjoy brushing, an activity the cat doesn't mind much, either.

 

The Birman are too docile for some pet owners. The Birman isn't nearly as solitary as other cats and likes to hang around with the people in its life. It is often at the owner's feet. The Birman needs constant attention, a marked contrast from most house cats.

 

The Birman is a show cat. In addition to regional and national shows, the National Birman Fanciers Association holds competitions exclusive to the breed. These shows are held in the Gulf Shore region in May and in the North Atlantic region every October. Another organization, the Sacred Cat of Burma Fanciers, holds a Birman-exclusive show in August. The show takes place in Medina, Ohio and attracts Birman owners from all over the country.

 

Except for a few issues, the Birman is a quite healthy cat breed. The Birman is extremely sensitive to anesthesia and has both A and B blood types. This should only be a concern if the cat is going into surgery. Pet owners should always consult with their vet before any major operation. Other than that, there are no out of the ordinary heath issues associated with the Birman. The average lifespan for a Birman is thirteen years, though with a proper diet and exercise, they can live up to fifteen years.
