I just had the most horrible situation. Joined a forum and my golly such an unfriendly and unwelcoming response (and from their moderator I might add). So please be kind :))))
I in the past 25 yrs have adopted about 6 purebred Burmese Tonkinese, Oriental adult cats. Only ever have 2 or 3 at a time and always keep them till their forever happens .
These poor cats were unwanted and their living situations tenuous. Most I got the papers and vet records not that it matters I just love the beauty and known temperament of the pure bred breeds. After initial teething problems some a few weeks others a few months they have fallen in love with me and me them
I adopted a 6 yr old Burmese 3 weeks ago from a sad situation where the 50 yr old (so young Im not far off that myself!) had a spinal stroke and is permanently in a nursing home now....after a long stay in hospital.
Miles is a lovely cat but is still scared, its little steps - little steps...... he jumps on my bed for a pat now and greets me when I watch close to her window sill (she has claimed my window sill in my bedroom). Its all short though and no curling up and snoozely wanting my pats or sleeping on my important paperwork...How can I encourage this I love smoochers, sooky noisy follow me around cats.... I live at home 24 7 as I run my busineess from home....
I think she may not be a burmese but may be a Russian Blue. She is EXTREMELY dark slate not like a blue nuetered stud cat I had for 15 yrs. She is bigger than any Burmese I have had but is that 'heavy' type cat. Her eyes are goldygreeny. Her coat seems to have a short hair next to a longer (not persian long I dont mean this) hair. Her face looks Burmese. She isnt clown like but its early days and she does play with her frayed rope toy a little.
Im very excited and would like to chat about her! What is a Russian like? Perhaps shes Russian/ Burmese....what is the darkest Burmese bluewise. I was VERY surprised when I saw her and I now have had a sable, a blue, a lilac.......
