Traditional Burmese 

People often ask me to describe the Burmese breed's personality. The Burmese personality is hard to define because it is much like the Tonkinese and Siamese in many respects. I describe the Siamese as royalty. The Tonkinese, I would describe as an American politician (wanting to earn your vote..). The Burmese is British Prime Minister (think Winston Churchill). They want your affection, but, they do not need it to validate themselves. They are a good fit for someone or a family that is really busy, and may not be at home as much as a Tonkinese requires!
