Birman cats are naturally sweet. They are a very popular breed of cat. The cats originated in Asia and made its way west to France. Birmans are born white and they have characteristic dark points. Their muzzels, tips of their ears, their limbs, and the tip of their tail, are darker. They have white paws that almost look like socks or mittens. I think a Birman would be a great cat to own. They are beautiful cats and I would say they're one of my favorites.
