Burmese Cats - A Hundred Posts

DSC04134

It's my 100th post! To celebrate, I'm ramping up the cute factor with a few Burmese cats.

By "Burmese cats", I don't mean Burmese cats, although maybe some of them are, because I can't really tell them apart.

By "Burmese cats", I don't mean
Birmans aka the Sacred Cat of Burma - incidentally, wtf? We're not ancient Egyptians. We don't worship cats.

Nope, I'm just showcasing some cute little fluffy kitty-cats from Burma (although that third one below looks a bit evil to me).

Feel free to imagine your own lolcat captions.

  3. This may sound strange - but I wonder what is the connection here: we were on holiday in Tenerife back in August and near our hotel and in fact anywhere in the area, the cats we saw looked like these - small frame, slim (although may to do with the climate), but distinguishly the narrow long face - it's definitely got that 'oriental' look. Not something I expect to see in Tenerife, and we did wonder where they came from...hmmm

  4. @Katy - Hi Katy - lovely to have you commenting ;)

    I think these are just feral cats - malnourished, scrawny little mites. Cats in Burma aren't really domesticated so I wonder if the ones in Tenerife are the same.

  6. Third one from top definitely looks evil.
    Not as evil as the spider, but still evil.

    Happy 100th!

  10. LOVE LOVE LOVE the kitties :) And yes, most cats in Burma were very feral looking (even the Jumping Cats!) so the lovely ones at the Sanctuary were a treat!
