FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
Kittens should be between 15-18 weeks of age after birth, when they can go to your home and when they are ready, strong and healthy to take the move. We will make the final decision when we think the kitten or kittens are ready and strong enough to handle the stress of moving to their new house and being separated from their litter mates.
Recently, we’ve been fielding this question quite often, and we feel it’s crucial to address it on our website, in addition to our personalized responses via the contact form. To minimize the risk of introducing viruses or bacteria into our cattery, we have specific protocols in place. If you’ve chosen a kitten and wish to see it in person, we can welcome you in a designated guest area for this purpose. However, until the kittens have been vaccinated, we can only show you the kitten you’re interested in from a distance, without any direct contact. It’s vital to understand that you could potentially be a carrier of viruses or other hazards to the kittens, even unknowingly. Kittens are highly susceptible to viruses and bacteria until they’ve had all their vaccinations, and it’s a risk we simply cannot take. We can always send you videos of the kitten you’re interested in, and if necessary, arrange a video call via WhatsApp, FaceTime, or Messenger.
Burmese all love being cuddled. Each kitten has its own purrsonality as do humans. We generally find the boys are more ‘laid back’ while the girls are off being very busy. However they are very loving (both males and females) and need affection and companionship.
Burmese cats can live up to 18 plus years.
The Burmese is an extremely affectionate cat who loves human company. They are a laid-back cat who gets along well with everyone.
All cats shed, however shedding in the Burmese cat is not excessive.
Burmese cats tend to think of themselves as “king or queen of the palace”, but because of their laid-back nature, they adapt very well to other animals in the house, especially if they are brought into the house in the form of kittens.
Due to their outgoing and confident nature, Burms will adapt quickly to many household situations and noises. They enjoy cuddling and lots of attention, however, always caution young children to be loving and gentle with their Burm and to please not pull their tail.
Burmese cats tend to bond very strongly with their people. If they are left alone during the day, they will probably sleep most of the time and will be ready for action when you come home. After a long day of being alone, you can expect your Burma to be like glue to you. They want nothing more than to be loved and played with. They are happiest when they have a companion, either human or animal.
