The Birman cat breed has medium-long fur and a point color scheme comprised of an off-white body and dark ears, face and tail. They have blue eyes and the appearance of white "socks" on each paw. A Birman cat's coat has a silky texture and very little undercoat, therefore their fur is not prone to matting.
Birman cat's are said to have a quiet and gentle temperament. They are very sociable cats who love affection and attention.
