BURMILLA

Burmilla cat breedsHISTORY

Burmillas are still considered a rare breed, especially in the United States. Their story began when Baroness Miranda Von Kirchberg  purchased a Chinchilla Persian, Jemari Sanquist as a gift for her husband. Before being neutered, the cat managed to mate with Bambino Lilac Faberge, a Lilac Burmese. Together they produced the very first litter of Burmilla kittens in the UK in 1981.
