JUMAUD THESES

 

The Birman description from Dr Phillipe Jumaud Theses 25 March 1925

 

Like the Siamese this breed, originated in the Far East. Birman cats bred in the temples are heavily guarded and their sale is prohibited. However a few years ago, a pair was acquired by *M Vanderbilt from which came the subjects that were the basis for our observations.

  

MANNERS

These cats are very sociable, intelligent, happy, loving following their master like a dog. There are however exceptions and one of the subjects observed was particularly savage.

 

 SIZE

These animals have an elongated body, slender legs, well proportioned. The adult weight ranges between 3 and 4 kg.
