SnowyHaven Birmans

Birman cats and kittens

 The BIRMAN may be the cat for you if you love a constant companion!

The Birman is a medium sized, color point cat that has a well balanced body.   All Birmans have blue eyes and their coat should have a golden cast to it.  The fur is a medium length that is silky to the touch  much like that of an angora rabbit's, and is not prone to tangle or matt.  They require very little grooming, perhaps a weekly brushing and a bath only when necessary.
     Even though it is a somewhat unknown breed, the temperament of a Birman is what puts them in the top 10 list of the most popular cat breeds.  Birmans are intelligent, curious, a bit mischievous, very affectionate, playful into their later years, and a wonderful companion that always wants to be with you, even when you're asleep!  They are a soft spoken cat that is charming and dignified with a sweet expression that will melt your heart.
They are slow to mature, often not reaching full size or coat until 3 years old.  They are generally a healthy cat with no breed-specific illness and have an average life expectancy of 16+  years.

  Our cattery is a small home hobby closed cattery. We do not allow other breeders to bring cats in for stud or service. To maintain the healthiest kittens and cats, we do not want to risk contamination from other catteries.

Visits are scheduled around litters, and by appointment only. No persons are allowed to browse our cattery unless they have put a deposit for a particular kitten, thus we maintain healthy cats.

Occasionally we have retired males available to a home. Our studs are only kept for a maximum of 3 years. We often rotate in new lines to provide the healthiest genetic variety possible. Our desire is to preserve and maintain the true Birman look and temperament.

Our kittens are vaccinated before leaving the cattery.

We feed "Life's Abundance" and Farmina N&D hard food and a variety of canned foods before they are able to leave.

We never use scoop litter which has been linked to fading kitten syndrome.
