A cat of mystery and legend, the Birman is a color pointed cat with long silky hair and four pure white feet. It is strongly built, elongated and stocky, neither svelte nor cobby. The blue, almost round eyes are set well apart, giving a sweet expression to the face.
The ideal Birman is a large, long stocky cat. It has long silky hair, not as thick as that of the Persian, and is of a texture that doesn't mat. The color of the coat is light, preferably with a golden cast, as if misted with gold. The "points" - face, legs and tail - are darker and sometimes patterned.
COAT LENGTH: Longhair
The Birman personality is marvelous - gentle, active, playful, but quiet and unobtrusive if you are busy with other things.
