Welcome to Pawfect Birmans
The Sacred Cat of Burma, as the Birman is sometimes called, is said to have acquired his eye-catching appearance through the intervention of a blue-eyed goddess, who rewarded a temple cat’s love for and devotion to his priest by turning his white coat golden and changing his yellow eyes to blue. His paws remained white as a symbol of his purity. Ever since, the temple cats have borne the goddess’s marks of favor, and it was said that priests who died were reborn into the cats’ bodies.
Birmans come in a variety of color points, seal, blue, chocolate, red or flame, and lilac in solid, tabby or tortie and typically weigh 6 to 12 pounds.
