The Burmese are smart, communicative, and friendly cats. They make a great family cat, getting along like gangbusters with children, and are comfortable around other pets, too. They might be a ball of energy as a kitten, but they cool off quickly, and end up a relatively laid back adult. They are very people-centric, and will follow their family around everywhere. Female Burmese are typically more energetic than males, and both sexes are very emotionally expressive. They even sulk if they are bummed out about something..
