History [ edit ]

The Burmilla is a breed of domestic cat which originated accidentally in the United Kingdom in 1981 as a result of a love story between a young Chinchilla, Jemari Sanquist (male), and a Burmese, Bambino Lilac Faberge (female) each of them waiting for a partner of the same breed in different rooms. One night the cleaner forgot to close the door and the romance resulted in a litter of four black shaded female kittens of amazing beauty. The kittens had the dazing silver colouring and the tipped markings of the Chinchilla and the inquisitive and friendly temperament of the Burmese. The kittens were so beautiful that the breeder, Miranda von Kirchberg, immediately realized that the accidental crossing could be the root of a new breed. She submitted one of these kittens, Astahazy Gemma, to an experimental breeding programme and Astahazy Gemma eventually became a foundation queen for the development of the Burmilla breed.

Temperament [ edit ]

The Burmilla is a very intelligent, curious and friendly cat, less noisy or demanding than the Burmese but mellower than a Chinchilla. This breed is very “people-oriented” and love being part of the family activities. They are very affectionate and need human attention. The love the comfort of their homes, but their curiosity and sociability may lead them to investigate the surroundings and the visitor’s cars that are left open; so they will be safer if confined to the house or a secure garden. They are very playful and should be given plenty of toys and a scratching post but these do not compensate for the human interaction. This breed is generally good with other animals and with children and when roughly handled by the children it tends to walk away instead of retaliating. Besides their amazing colours, Brumillas have a delightful, great-natured temperament, are very sensitive to their owners’ feelings and make excellent pets.
