Birman Pet Insurance

The Birman is a docile, quiet cat who loves people and will follow you from room to room. The Birman has a silky, medium-length coat in the pointed pattern of the Siamese. Despite the length of the Birman’s coat, it has a silky texture that doesn’t mat easily. Comb it weekly to remove dead hair and distribute skin oils. Birmans shed their winter coat in the spring, so you may want to comb more frequently then to remove loose hair. Life Span: 12 to 16 years.
