Did you know that where did The Burmese Cat came from?

Many years ago, my first husband sober blue Burmese cat, all except one. He was the Big Daddy of them all, a gorgeous Brown Burmese, who weighed in at a muscular 15 pounds. He was king of the area, but has the unfortunate habit of giving me.
It consists of dead birds, your average Garden Variety - except for one afternoon, when he outdid himself. He came home with the best budgerigar. There are only two tiny puncture marks on either side of her neck. He was very careful not to use. It was a beautiful metallic blue.
The biggest problem is that we had no idea who the owner of awards. Of course, we chided him, gently, but it seems to do the trick. No birds appeared.
We found these wonderful cats, playful, very even tempered and healthy. It is interesting to see how the Burmese first appeared in the West. A U.S. Naval Doctor Joseph Thompson, was fascinated by the Far East and especially cats are located. In 1930 he came across a Burmese Brown named Wong Mau, when he was in what is now Yangon, Myanmar, formerly Rangoon, Burma.
Dr. Thompson spent a long time as a Buddhist monk in Tibet, but its enduring attraction of the brown short-haired cats phenomenon in the area prompted him to further investigate the origin of the race. The Burmese Brown in relation to this region is known as "copper cat," and was around southern Asia for centuries.
Dr. Thompson came to a most interesting book entitled, "The Cat Book Poems", written between 1350 and 1767. The book shows pictures of cats and Siamese cats also known as Korat. It showed that they are completely independent of the various Burmese all centuries ago. Legend has held that the descendants of the Burmese cats were worshiped in Burmese temples because they are considered the Carnate statue of the god on earth.
Unfortunately, no male Burmese find, or at least trip. If it meant that they see, but he died, we really do not know. However, Dr. Thompson brought Wong Mau in America and because he seal point Siamese cat breed, Wong Mau Mau Tai associated with a name.
Three kittens to appear in three different colors: beige, brown and pointed. While he was busy conducting his research he discovered that Wong Mau herself was a Siamese hybrid - half Siamese and half Burmese. The kittens were crossed with each other or back to Wong Mau, and Thompson found that the Burmese gene responsible for color Sable is all part of the albino series of genes.
The Burmese gene causes the solid black and dark sable appears by reducing the amount of pigment in hair.
