Burmilla temperament

A mix between a Burmese and Chinchilla, Burmilla's make quiet gentle pets. They exhibit impish qualities like a Burmese but can also be relaxed like a Chinchilla. They are highly intelligent and enjoy figuring things out, like opening doors and doing new tricks. Playing is a must for a Burmilla, making them great for families and children. They can be demanding at times, displaying kitten-like behaviour. They can also be vocal at times, usually when seeking attention.
