    :eek: She's wonderful! I'd never heard of them either. I've just read through the website.

    Congratulations!

    That doesn't make them a new breed. :) They're lovely! Not an ancient breed but also not a particularly new breed either. I understand they are categorised along with Asians by the GCCF. I'd personally like to see more of them at shows. They are beautiful...

    Best of luck Babette x

    They sound like one of the "cookie" named crossbreed dogs :)

    Had a quick look at a site and said they originated via an accidental mating? Maybe a Burmese/Chinchilla? In the 1980's? Will read up a little, never come across them before.

    look up chinchillas I Love them!! :001_wub: Oh and black tipped british shorthairs :)

    well they arent a pretend made up dog cross breed, they are a breed of cat, they have been going for 30years, thats generations of them, all over the world :) google them! :001_smile:

    alot of breeds started by ''chance'' or from 1 kitten being different in the litter, or from a purpose mating! :)

    most people havent come across most breeds, alot of people havent heard of bengals / ragdolls / birmans / chinchillas / etc I think thats why google was invented! :D

    Gorgeous!

    This part of the forum is dangerous, 'kitten watch' is my new thing. I honestly don't know how breeders do it, I think I would actually explode with all the nervous excitement!

    I have a silver burmilla also! My girl is a lot leaner and more poiny than your girl though, less of the chinchilla characteristics. They are a beautiful breed though, my girl is very very vocal compared to my bsh's, do you find this too?

    That's right. They have had Championship status in GCCF for something like 13 years. I've been breeding them since 1995 and there were plenty of people there before me.

    I like the Burmilla: lovely breed. My friend has one. They should look like they have eyeliner around their eyes. My friend's girl made it to Grand Champion and won Best in Show at the Merseyside show a few years back.

    She did breed a litter of kittens with her but like me found the idea of letting go of the kittens too distressing, so also like me, she stopped breeding.

    They are a wonderful breed for people who like their cats active and lively because they seem to have inherited the Burmese temperament.
