The Burmese Cat- Energetic, Friendly and Intelligent
10 November, 2015
If you are looking to adopt a highly energetic and friendly cat, the Burmese Cat might just be the one for you. The Burmese cat is very intelligent and loves human companionship, so a Burmese is not a great fit for a home where he or she will be left alone all day. If there are no people around during the day, make sure your Burmese has the company of another pet. The Burmese Cat is very sociable and gets along well with other cats and with dogs.
The Burmese are very curious cats
The Burmese is about as curious as cats come. Expect your kitty to explore your home thoroughly and know all of its nooks and crannies. He is playful and remains so into adulthood. Make sure to have interactive toys handy and teach him tricks that will allow him to show off for an audience. Besides sit, roll over, wave and come, a Burmese can learn to fetch a small toy or walk on a leash. Vet visits aren’t a panic as they love any type of adventure.
The Burmese is a very social, interactive cat
A Burmese is a good choice if want a very sociable cat. This cat will want to be involved in everything you do, from reading the newspaper and working at the computer to watching television. He will, of course, sleep on the bed with you and may even snuggle under the covers. When you are sitting down, he will be in your lap or right next to you, waiting to be pet. If you have friends over, they will receive your cat’s full attention, and it is likely that he will win over even those who claim to dislike cats.
Caring for your Burmese Cat
The soft, short coat of the Burmese is easily cared for with weekly brushing or combing to remove dead hair and distribute skin oil. A bath is rarely necessary.
