Welcome to the Burmese Cat Society

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.
REHOMING OF BURMESE CATS Anyone, member or not, can contact the Club, via Sue Thomas, Melanie Martin, 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.
