Birman Cats : White gloved beauties!
Often referred to as the "Sacred Cat of Burma", the origin of the breed is legendary ~ literally. The legend goes that 100 white cats lived with the priests at the temple of Lao-Tsun in Burma. The temple was raided, and one cat, Sinh, put his paws on a priest's head while he lay dying. The cat's fur and eyes changed color, but his paws remained pure white, symbolizing the purity of the priest.
The most prominent, and important, feature of the Birman cat is its white "gloved" feet.
Some might say that this breed of cat is all about balance. Although Birmans have long silky hair, it doesn't mat ~ a wonderful balance of a luxurious coat with no fuss to its owners. Birmans are very people oriented but adapt well to changing schedules ~ a balance of attitude and grace!
If you desire a cat that will play, greet you warmly when you come home, and have an air of dignity about them, then this breed will be the perfect choice for you!
"There are few things in life more heartwarming than to be welcomed by a cat"
