Listings for websites with information about the sable, champagne, blue, and platinum colors of Burmese with American type.
Please regard the style and colours of the Burmese that your cattery works with when submitting to this category. It may be more appropriate to submit it to European Burmese
if the type is more moderate and colors are in addition to the traditional colors of sable, blue, champagne and platinum. Burmese catteries in the UK, Europe, and Australia would also be more accurately listed in the European Burmese category.
Although the Burmese and the European Burmese share the same ancestry, they do differ in type and coloration. The Burmese here refers to a breed with an extreme body type and coming in 4 traditional colors. The European Burmese refers to a breed with a more moderate body type and a wider variation of colors (including the reds, creams, and various torties). As the Burmese in Europe (and then Australia and New Zealand) took the latter path in development, what those breeders call "Burmese" breeders in the United States refer to as "European Burmese."

Different registries recognize different color patterns as "Siamese" and this sometimes confusing for the layperson.
All registries recognize chocolate, seal, blue, and lilac points as Siamese.
Some registries (such as GCCF, TICA, and ACFA) recognize other point colors (such as red, lynx, or tortie) in the Siamese class.
Other registries (such as CFA and TCA) recognize these colors in the Colorpoint Shorthair class.
Related to the Siamese are the Orientals. They have the same body structure, but their color is all over the body, not just restricted to the points.
There are longhair varieties of all of these cats. The Balinese is the longhaired variant of the Siamese; the Javanese that of the Colorpoint Shorthair, and the Oriental has a Longhair division.
As these breeds are somewhat interrelated, the reader may want to also check the "related " category links. There may be additional relevant information there, and often these breeders may also work with Siamese.
