The Burmilla’s head is the same as the Burmese, being gently rounded with medium to large ears. Their eyes are green and they have the lithe and muscular body of the Burmese and slightly longer hindlegs than forelegs.
The luminous coat is this breed’s crowning glory. The coat is slightly longer than that of the Burmese but soft, flat and glossy. The ground colour may be silver or gold, gently tipped in black, brown or other Burmese colours.
