The different colours of the Burmese

At Neocat more the 10 colours are recognized in the Burmese. Two of those are relatively new. For each colour there is a photo.

 

Brown (BUR n)

The fur of this cat is warm dark brown, which gradually becomes lighter towards the belly. Apart from this and the slightly darker ears and mask no other colour is allowed. The nose leather and the feet are brown. A too dark brown, towards black is wrong.

Chocolate (BUR b)
