Is it a cat or is it a doll? How about both! 😀 This breed has a very weird myth surrounding the cause of its origin. It is claimed to have been created after a pregnant cat broke her pelvis, the resultant litter had the ability to squash to the ground just like a rag doll. However, science has firm claims against trauma affecting the genetic markings of any species. All the origin stories aside the breed are believed to be naturally occurring and is extremely affectionate. Are you a mom that is finding it hard to cut the cord and let their grown-up babies go?

If you have been on the internet in the past few months I’m sure you will be aware of the term RBF(Resting Bi**** Face ). This cat breed is the epitome of an RBF with its stellar, elegant looks and lined eyes, the Burmilla looks to have walked straight out of a red carpet. A breed that can be truly described as gorgeous, this cat is not just all looks. An affectionate breed that is slow to trust other people. Just like the looks, the haughtiness of the person makes it into a perfect a diva. Their luxurious dense coat and round tip tail makes them irresistible but slightly high maintenance because, well beauty is the pain. However this time your diva has you to take care of all its shenanigans. All the knick-knacks in the world including a self cleaning litter box is exactly what you need to spoil your baby.

An added surprising fact is that this was not a well thought outbreed, this thing of beauty came into existence by mere accident when a Burmese cat mated with a Chinchilla. An average Burmilla can grow to an average weight of 3 kg to 4.5 kg.
