The Birman is a pointed cat with white gloves, boots, and laces. The gloves are white toes on the front legs. The boots are white feet on the back legs. The laces are an inverted white “V” going up the back of the hind legs. Some laces go halfway up while others go all the way to the cat’s elbow.
Birmans come in a variety of colors. Qaypurrs Birman Cattery specializes in lilac point, blue point, chocolate point, and seal point.
