General
The European Burmese is an elegant cat of foreign type, which is positive and individual to the breed. Any suggestion of either Siamese type or the cobbiness of the British Shorthair must be regarded as a fault.
Body
Medium in length and size; hard and muscular; heavier than appearance indicates; chest strong and rounded; back straight from shoulder to rump.
Head
Top of head slightly rounded, with good breadth between ears; wide cheekbones tapering to short blunt wedge.
Ears
Medium in size; set well apart; broad at base with slightly rounded tips; slight forward tilt.
Eyes
Set well apart; large and lustrous; top line of eyes show straight Oriental slant toward nose. Color for all varieties yellow to amber, golden yellow preferred.
Tail
Medium length; not thick at base; tapers slightly to rounded tip.
Coat
Short, fine, lying close to the body; satinlike texture; very glossy.
Color
Brown, blue, chocolate, lilac, red, cream, seal tortie, blue tortie, chocolate tortie, lilac tortie.
Disqualify
White patches; visible tail kink; green eyes; too many tabby markings on red or cream European Burmese.
Allowable Outcrosses
None.
