Russel and Judy live in a beautiful small town Lumby in the Okanagan Valley area in British Columbia, Canada. We have owned cats all our lives, but first became interested in breeding Burmese in 2003. We had owned a Burmese/Himalayan cross female cat named Kit. She was a special cat and had characteristics we had never seen before in any of our cats. She really communicated with us with different sounds, and was completely devoted to the family. She was dog-like in nature and would follow us everywhere. She would wait outside a closed door if she knew we were inside. She was very intelligent and very curious, and seemed to love us totally. We realized that her unusual personality were some of the traits of the Burmese cat. When she passed away, we tried to find another Burmese cat to replace her. We began to realize that Burmese are not very common in this area. I have a background in breeding larger animals such as horses and cattle and our daughter had aspirations to be a vet and volunteered in the SPCA, so it was only natural that we began to entertain the notion of breeding them ourselves. We purchased our first breeding queen in 2004. We are proud to promote these excellent animals. We have stayed very small, so we can give all our cats individual attention, which the Burmese crave. Our females give birth in a large maternity room not in a cage. The kittens at 8 weeks (or when litter-trained) are given the run of our house. We have a health guarantee and spay/neuter agreement. All kittens are sold with a minimum of two vaccinations and two health checks given by a qualified veterinarian. They go to their new approved homes at 13 weeks of age. We withhold the registration slip until proof of spay/neutering has been given. We breed for all four colors of Burmese: sable, blue, champagne and platinum. Burmese are sold as indoor pets only. They are way too trusting to be an outside animal, and would not last very long in the great outdoors.
