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 lectures, workshops, discussions, shows and exhibitions; 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

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.


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.

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.  

These cats in distress are burmese cats who for various reasons are requiring new homes from time to time.

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 happy to assist .

**SHOW NEWS**  Our 50th anniversary Show in 2018 will be held at the St Ives Community Hall on March 11.  The main hall is air conditioned, and is located across the road from the St Ives shops. 

We are hoping to exhibit some early memorabilia, and will be honouring some of our long-term burmese member breeders on this day.

We are excited to be able to hold our show in this venue, and hope that everyone is locking in that date to bring not only their beautiful burmese, but also their other Group 3 cats to help us celebrate 50 years. smiley


Next year on February 17th (Saturday) our club is holding a fundraiser BBQ at Bunnings at Austlink Corporate Park, Niangala Close, Belrose, to assist with our expenses for our 50th anniversary show. This Bunnings store is about 2 minutes drive from the St Ives Showground.

Members, please contact Melanie Martin (email suchi@burmeseaustralia.com or mobile phone (0411 311 311) if you are able to assist at any time during the day.  Your assistance would be most appreciated.
