The European Burmese stands out from the Burmese
by way of its additional colors and breed type. Burmese come in
brown, chocolate, blue and lilac. European Burmese come in those
colors as well as red, cream, brown tortoiseshell, chocolate tortoiseshell,
blue tortoiseshell and lilac tortoiseshell. The body type also differs.
The European Burmese has a moderate body with gently rounded contours,
but it's muscular and heavier than it looks. Expressive eyes curve
slightly at the top, slanting toward the nose, and range in color
from yellow to amber. The wide cheekbones taper to a short, blunt
wedge. It’s described as elegant but not fragile.
