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.   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 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.

  ** SHOW NEWS from 11 MARCH 2018 **   

Our 50th Anniversary Show wasat St Ives Community Hall, and from observations throughout the day, seemed to be a very successful event, with good weather, lovely cats, and many many visitors who were very interested in seeing the cats.  A great range of prizes were awarded those whose exhibits were judged to be the best on the day. 

Peter Williams, our UK judge continued to captivate his audiences as he does each time he judges for us.  (Peter was judging the specialist Burmese ring).  Val Cashman, Marg Sim and Sue Thomas judged the 3 Group 3 pedigree  exhibits, with Garry Stephens, Chris Buckley and Sue Thomas judging our companion exhibits. 

Our  member breeders who have been breeding for the longest years were honoured yesterday.  They are Mrs Sally Prass (Cowra NSW), Anne Milner (SA), Mrs Dianne Dolman (SA), Margaret Walker (NSW) and Marg Sim (NSW).  Unfortunately Anne Milner (SA) could not be with us yesterday, but it was lovely to see Sally and Dianne at the show.  Both Marg Sim  and Margaret Walker were also  there in various club capacities throughout the day. 

 A successful show is the culmination of work by the members of  a club, and  a big thank you is given to all those who helped before and on the day.  

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, Sue Thomas, Chris Smith or Sofia Cordell-Fuda,  (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,moving overseas, breakup of family, marriage 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
