The Burmilla was originally created accidentally in the United Kingdom. Two cats, a Chinchilla Persian named Sanquist, and Fabergé which was a Brown tortie burmese were both awaiting a partner of their own breed in different rooms. One night the cleaner left the door open.
The two cats bred, producing four kittens born in 1981. Thus, a new breed was born. Burmilla is considered part of the Asian cat breed. Only the Shaded and Tipped Silver varieties have been recognised in FIFe, CCCA, ACF and CFA as the Burmilla. As of late 2011 the Golden Shaded and Tipped Burmilla is also recognised within FIFe. One governing body in Australia has used the name Australian Tiffanie, however, there is not international acceptance and standardisation for this breed — Tiffany has been used to describe many different breeds having the appearance from Ragdoll to Birman and may contain any of these breeds and more.
Many Australian Tiffanies in Australia contain more than three-quarters Persian Chinchilla and retain the appearance and temperament of the Old Fashioned Chinchilla. The name’s use is declining in favour due to the lax standards for the breed name, the lack of unique identity and varied genetic makeup. The profile shows a gentle nose break. Tip of nose and chin should be in line. Chin is firm, with good depth. Medium to large, broad at base with slightly rounded tips.
Ear set with slight forward tilt in profile. Eye color luminous, any shade of green. Some allowance can be made for a gold or yellow tinge in kittens and young adults. The Burmilla comes in two coat lengths, semi long hair and shorthair. Semi long hair Burmilla are known as Tiffanie in GCCF. This is a short, close-lying coat similar in appearance to the Burmese but with slightly padded feel due to the undercoat, it has a very soft, silky feel.
The recessive longhair gene inherited from the Chinchilla can produce Longhair Burmilla. These cats have a semi-longhair coat following the lines of the body, with a soft, silky feel and a large plumed tail. The Shorthair gene is dominant, and where a cat receives one of each, the appearance will be Shorthair. Two Longhair Burmillas mated together will always produce Longhair kittens, while Shorthair matings depend on whether the Longhair genes are carried by the Shorthair parents. The Burmilla have a variety of coat colours, including black, blue, brown, chocolate and lilac. All the Burmilla coat colours can be expressed in either Burmese expression, or full expression.
The Burmilla is now recognised in Golden Shaded and Tipped in FIFe registries, but only Silver everywhere else. The Burmilla’s shading comes in two major coat patterns which relate to the depth of colour. These are Tipped and Shaded. In the case of Silvers, these cats can appear almost white. 2 as their colour giving the appearance of a mantle of colour over the back, shoulders and outside of the legs. Smoke pattern is not a Burmilla and in some registries is only allowed to be registered for breeding, not showing, they have almost all colour with only a faint pale base to each hair. The cats have nose leather coloured correspondingly to their coat colour and outlined in the matching coat shading colour. In addition their paw pads correspond to the coat colouring: Black Silver cats have black or very dark brown paw pads, Brown will have dark brown, Chocolate have pinkish brown, Blues have Blue-grey and Lilacs have Dove grey tinged with pink. Brown, Blue, Chocolate, Lilac and all the O gene range, both in Burmese Expression and in Full Expression.
