Burmilla History

Date of Origin 1981

Place of Origin: Britain

Ancestry: Burmese, Chinchilla Longhair/Persian

The Burmilla was first bred in Britain in 1981 after an accidental mating between a Lilac Burmese and a Chinchilla Silver Persian.

The breed was developed from this point, with outcrosses back to Burmese and Chinchilla being used at various stages to consolidate a cohesive look

Burmilla Coat Type and Colours      
See also Long Hair Burmillas (Australian Tiffanies)

The Burmilla is a beautiful cat of medium foreign  type, showing striking contrast between coloured Shading/Tipping and Silver undercoat with delicate tracings of Tabby markings on the head, legs and tail.  There should be a distinctive M mark on the forehead.

The Burmilla's eyes are the stunning feature of this cat. They can be any shade of green with dark penciling on the lids which makes it look like the cat is wearing eyeliner.

The Burmilla come in 5 colours Chocolate, Brown, Blue, Lilac and Black The coat is either shaded or tipped.
and all have a silver white undercoat.



The nose is brick red, also with a dark outline.  At birth, Burmilla kittens can be very dark, some with distinct tabby markings which disappear very quickly on the body, or almost white, in which case the colour starts appearing within a few days.  They have a dense coat with a feeling of raw silk at the tips.  They also come in a variety of colours and coat patterns from solid, tabby (ticked, classic, etc) or smoke. Burmillas come in both short and semi long hair inheriting  genes from both the Burmese (shorthair) and Chinchilla (longhair) parentage.

Burmilla Personality

The Burmilla is an outgoing, friendly and sociable cat that has inherited slightly modified characteristics from both of the original parents; it is not as noisy nor demanding as the Burmese, but is more adventurous and inquisitive than the Chinchilla

The Burmilla is set to become increasingly more popular because of its good looks and extremely good nature.

Burmillas are great with children. Combined with their low maintenance and wonderful disposition they make an ideal family pet.
