The Burmese Cat Club was formed in 1955 and is one of the largest cat clubs in the UK with a national and international membership. We exist to safeguard the wellbeing and the purity of the breed, and to encourage a wider appreciation of the unique qualities of Burmese cats.

The history of the Burmese breed in the UK is described in detail in our publications.

We are looking for Club Members photos of their beautiful Burmese and a few words about the choice.
