Burmese are a people-oriented breed that crave attention from their owners. They are an incredibly affectionate, friendly and playful breed, often learning to fetch toys much the same as a dog.
Burmese are an intelligent, sweet natured and social breed who will follow you around the house demanding a pat or cuddle. They don’t do well by themselves for extended periods of time, so a best suited to owners that are home often, or in a multi-cat household.
They can be fairly vocal often greeting you when you come home, or telling you when they want something. Burmese are good with children and insist on being a part of what’s going on, making them a great family pet.
