Just like my beautiful Fenn (Burmese cats have an awesome ability to love and will often require a lot of attention since they are so loving. They should not be a cat that is left alone all day while you are at work. If you are away a lot, get 2 Burmese and you will get 2 very blissful cats.)
Birmans maintain a balance between playfulness and affection. These adaptable cats like playing games with other pets and children, but also appreciate a good cuddle when everything has calmed down. Not steadfast lap cats, Birmans will occupy themselves for periods of time and they eagerly seek you out for a good head scratch. Because of this flexible attitude, Birmans usually do not have trouble warming up to new guests.
