Long-hair Burmilla Truly affectionate

495
The silvery Long-hair Burmilla kitties are easy going cats who are happy to sit and watch most of the time. However, when it is time to play, their eyes light up and are on the go…

Our first Long-hair Burmilla ‘Momo’ came to us in 2004 and we just fell in love. Momo was so affectionate and gentle; I could not believe that a cat could behave like that. We started breeding Burmillas in 2005 and have not looked back since. These cats are just the most beautiful and affectionate cats we have ever seen. Most of them are lap cats and want nothing more than spending the day with us.
Silver n’ shine…
The Long-hair Burmilla is a silver cat with tipping or shading on the end of the hair shaft. Tipping or shading can come in five colours – black, brown, blue, chocolate and lilac. The most striking feature of the breed is their large beautiful green eyes with mascara reflecting their coat colour. Equally enchanting is their brick red nose and a round domed head with well set medium sized ears. They also boast a true semi-longhair easy care coat.
Loving n’ affectionate…

They are generally laid back cats, playful as kittens but tend to settle down when they reach adulthood. They are affectionate cats and love to be with their people and involve themselves in everything they do.
Food n’ play…
Long-hair Burmillas are not fussy cats and are generally happy to eat most foods. They love feathers so a feather teaser is a must. A tall cat tree with a platform on the top is just perfect as cats love to sit up high and watch the world go by. What’s more interesting, many of them fetch like dogs. They are also easy to train through clicker.
Groom n’ shine…
Because of the true semi-longhair coat, the Long-hair Burmilla only requires to be brushed once a week with a wide tooth metal comb. They do not tend to shed until they reach adulthood. In summer time or warm weather, you should brush your cat more frequently to assist with the shedding process.
Watch out for…
Since the Burmillas were originally created by crossing Burmese with Chinchilla Persian, Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) could be passed on from the Chinchilla parent.
