Birman

I was on my morning walk when I saw this gorgeous, playful cat in the front garden in our neighbourhood. I was completely mesmerized by its piercing blue eyes.I spent a good 30 minutes trying to get it to look straight into my camera and was finally rewarded with this shot. "The Birman, also called the "Sacred Cat of Burma", is a domestic cat breed. The Birman is a long-haired, color-pointed cat distinguished by a silky coat, deep blue eyes, and contrasting white "gloves" or "socks" on each paw. "
