Welcome to the Burmese Cat Society
of Australasia Inc.
We hope you enjoy your visit and take a while to browse our pages to learn about the Society and the wonderful Burmese cat.
About the Society
The Burmese Cat Society of Australasia was founded in New South Wales in 1967 to:
- promote and improve the welfare and breeding of Burmese cats by shows and exhibitions (where they are able to be held); and
- aid and support all activities for the benefit and welfare of all cats.
The Society was granted incorporation status in 1994. It is affiliated with NSW Cat Fanciers' Association Inc.
Our Club's administration and activities are based in NSW.
The Club holds an Annual Championship Show, a highlight for the start of the show season. You can read all about this main event on our Show page. This year the show has moved to July. We have an archive of past show results.
Each year we recognise our outstanding Burmese exhibits with our Burmese of the Year
awards. The Rules governing the Awards to Members Cats/Kittens of the year is on the Annual Awards - Members page.
*** The Burmese show was held on 24 July 2022 ***
We wish to acknowledge and thank our wonderful sponsors:
CatzMatz, Raw Meow, The Pussycat Junction, Wombaroo Passwell, and Fancycat.
Our 2023 show will be held on 12 March 2023 at the Douglas Pickering Pavilion at the St Ives Showground.
KITTEN AND CAT PURCHASES FROM OUR BREEDERS
*** DISCLAIMER ***
The Society is unable to settle disputes between our breeders and kitten buyers. This is a transaction between the purchaser and the seller, and
any disputes which arise should be directed to the NSW Office of Fair Trading. We remind our breeders of our Code of Ethics.
Perhaps you are looking for a Burmese kitten or an adult burmese cat, (usually a desexed queen or older cats who need rehoming). Why not view our kitten Classified section or visit our Breeder listings?
We advise that the advertisements which appear on our website are not in any way an endorsement by the Society of any particular breeder. You are advised to do your research in relation to buying kittens or cats, no matter from whom you buy.
REHOMING OF BURMESE CATS Anyone, member or not, can contact the Club, via Melanie Martin, or Sue Thomas (see contact details below) to arrange for a listing for any burmese cats in distress to be placed on our website.
Please note that these cats in distress are just that - burmese cats who for various reasons (such as death or illness of owner, etc are requiring new homes from time to time. This is also a service for burmese cats who have been found because they were lost, or abandoned.
Listings for them can be found under "Kittens" - Available Kittens/Older Cats tab.
In Other States:
We suggest you contact your local vet, or your own state's cat fancies first before contacting us, as they most probably have their own rehoming services, or know who may be looking for a cat. It is always best to find homes locally for the cats requiring new homes, however we are always happy to assist .
There are facebook groups which can be contacted to list burmese cats needing to be rehomed. One such group is:
Siamese, Burmese Oriental Cat re-homing Australia
