Featured Breed.... BIRMAN
Birmans are a delight to care for. As their silky fur does not mat, little grooming is required. They are outgoing cats, often following their masters around like a puppy. They give the impression of quiet power and harmony through rather pensive, sweet eyes. Birmans greatly appreciate companionship, especially that of younger children, and more readily display happiness than anger. The breed is robust and hearty, and easily adaptable to most environments.
