Star of the Month
The Burmilla Cat Club was formed on 21st January 1984 by Thérèse and Charles Clarke and Barbara Gazzaniga. Thérèse and Charles had bred the first 2nd generation litter from Gemma and Jaycynthe bred by Miranda Von Kirsburgh and the foundation of the Clarkes Kartush lines. Barbara had bought Kartush Amreatea a chocolate shaded silver with the intention of breeding a new line of Burmillas with her as the foundation queen. It was then decided to form a club to shape the future breeding programme, and standard of points for the Burmilla and to promote and encourage breeders to take up this beautiful cat. To this end an official announcement was published in Cat world on 1st March 1984 by which time the club had attracted 22 ordinary members. Informal meetings were held during the year and at the 1st AGM held on 24th March 1985 the officers were elected..
Since those early days membership has increased with members from several countries in Scandinavia, Western Europe,and as far as Australia. The Club became affiliated to the Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB) on 1st January 1986, also becoming affiliated to the Cat Association on 3rd July 1986 (the Cat Association (CA) then went on to become the FIFe member for the UK).
In May of 1994 the club held the second of two show at which FIFe senior judges came to assess the breed over five generations in order to grant full breed status. Having passed this scrutiny the breed was recognised from 1st January 1995 as a full breed by the FIFe
The Club welcomes new members who breed, own pets or just love the breed, see the notice board for details

It is with sadness I have to announce the sudden death of this much loved cat. Stoffi was a consummate diarist (with help from his Secretary), a comedian, an intrepid explorer and mighty hunter of shrews.
He will be sorely missed by his family Carol and James Bryant
and his many fans from all over the world.
