Personality Traits & Trainability ★
Burmese are one of the friendliest, most affectionate breeds and as a result are referred to as a “dog-cat” as they crave human attention and can learn tricks like their canine friends. The breed are highly intelligent, always down to play and can learn typically ‘doggy’ tricks such as fetch and roll over. Importantly, because of their affectionate nature and need for attention (expect to be followed around the house by your Burmese!) it is not recommended to keep this breed on its own if you will be out of the house for long hours.
Due to their soft, short coat, grooming your Burmese requires little effort. As a result, a weekly brush will be enough to keep them looking smart!
Although Burmese are generally health, some ailments to look out for are cranial deformities, glaucoma or feline hyperaesthesia syndrome, which results in an increased sensitivity to touch.
