More details about the Burmilla

Burmilla: Origins and history

In 1981, the accidental mating of "Fabergé", a female lilac Burmese, with "Sanquist", a silver Persian chinchilla, who both belonged to Baroness Miranda Von Kirchberg, gave birth to the first 4 Burmilla kittens. The Baroness then decided to have a litter by mating another of her Burmese cats with Sanquist. These first kittens are at the origin of many lineages of this new breed. Cross-breeds have been specifically made to get particular physical characteristics such as short hair, as well as improving the quality of the tipping on their fur!

Burmilla: Purchase price

Their price ranges from £500 to £650. Price varies depending on their gender, lineage (parental pedigree) and their conformity to the breed standard.
It costs on average £25 to £30/ month to provide for its needs, to provide it with a good quality diet and keep it in good health.
