Asian - Self
Breed Rating (1 Reviews)
The history of the Asian cat breed begins is Britain in 1981. Baroness Miranda von Kirchberg unintentionally bred her Burmese cat with a Persian Chinchilla cat, which gave birth to a litter of very pretty kittens.
She wanted to develop the colours and coat patterns in her new breed to something similar to a Burmese. Throughout her breeding program the cats were regularly backcrossed to pure bred Burmese cats to maintain the Burmese shape, musculature, coat texture and temperament.
Today there are more breeders working on developing the breed further.
The Asian cat shares its temperament with the closely related Burmese. They are very friendly and affectionate cats who bond closely with their owners. These cats will demand attention with their loud shrills so make sure you can provide a nice lap for them to sit in.
Tortie, Smoke, Tabby, Burmilla and all solid colours.
