My Bailey is half Birman half Siamese and very sweet. Of course, it's hard to say how much of his personality is Siamese, Birman, or just coming from him, but he's the nicest cat I've ever owned. He's always waiting at the door when I come home, and likes to cuddle up on the couch in the evenings. His fur is super soft too. I think if I ever got a purebred cat it would be a Birman.

Birmans are longhair pointed cats originally accepted in 4 colors - seal, blue, chocolate, lilac points. Recently, some associations allowed the other colors of red, cream, tortie, tabby points.

Their coat is silkier then a persian and doesn't mat as easily which is great for less grooming

The white markings on the feet and face are one of the hardest to "control" (the white spotting gene). Very few Birmans ever get to be "show quality" because the standard is very strict with the pattern. So there are a lot more "pet quality" kittens born. The cat is still the same temperment wise, but just "mismarked". They are loving cats and on the quietier side.

My fav color is the chocolate points as their coats stay a lot whiter then the seal points.
