Katsacute Burmese

All our kittens are sold as pets only.

We allow the new owners to choose the registered (pedigree) name of their kitten, but please let us know your choice as soon as possible so that we can register your kitten, and his/her brothers and sisters, with the GCCF. The GCCF certificates of registration will be given to the new owners on confirmation by a veterinary surgeon that the kitten has been neutered.

Your cat's lifestyle and social needs

Burmese and Australian Mists are highly sociable and enjoy the company of other cats, so it is kindest to keep them with another cat. This is essential if you are going to be out of the house for more than a couple of hours every day - because they are intelligent and active, they can get very bored and demanding if left alone. Adopting two kittens from the same litter is ideal, but otherwise people often introduce a Burmese kitten to an older cat, or adopt a kitten from a cat rescue as well.

We advise you not to let your kitten out because of the dangers we have discussed with you. Because Burmese and Australian Mists are so trusting and friendly, the main risk of allowing them outside is that they will be stolen, or taken off by some well-intentioned person who thinks that they are lost (collars and name tags often come off...). The dangers of traffic are present for all cats, but it is possible the trusting and confident nature of Burmese makes them more vulnerable as they just can't imagine anyone, or anything, doing them any harm. Finally, outdoor cats are far more vulnerable to infection with various diseases which are caught in fights with other cats, or from hunting. For these reasons, we recommend that you keep your Burmese or Australian Mist cats indoors for safety, but concentrate on providing them with a stimulating environment, feline companionship,  and lots of fun and interaction.

Your kitten has had the immunisations which are recommended for a house cat. However, if you do let the kitten out, you should have a further immunisation given for Feline Leukaemia.

If your cat should ever need rehoming, for any reason, please contact us immediately. We will always be available to help.
Please ensure that your kitten is registered with a veterinary surgeon.  For your pet's safety, we recommend that you choose a practice which has its own out-of-hours emergency service, rather than one which uses an agency.  Agencies usually will not have access to your own vet's records and this can be disastrous for your pet.  For more details, see Rights4Pets at Vets


Give three meals a day until about 6 months old, then move to two meals a day. All dry and pouch/tinned food should be of the kitten variety, until one year of age.

Offer the food for about 15 minutes and put away any uneaten food at the end of that time. Dry food can be kept for later, but moist food should be thrown away. This is more interesting for the cat than simply leaving food down all day.

It is more interesting for your cat if you can offer a variety of meals each day, eg:


Your kitten has been wormed several times before leaving us, but will need to be wormed regularly in future. If it is kept indoors and fed hygienically-prepared food then every four or six months should be sufficient.
