As they mature, however, they begin to show their unique personalities. They will interact with humans with a soft voice. Burmese cats tend to well with children and dogs. Burmese cats are usually around the people of the house, sitting in their laps or cuddling in their beds.


The sable Burmese is a deep lovely brown with darker ears, face and tail. The champagne is a tawny color, and the platinum is a very light colored cat. The blue Burmese cat has a silky silver-gray coat. Some breeders also sell other colors of Burmese cats, such as lilacs, and torties.
