REINTRODUCTION OF BURMESE CAT TO MYANMAR

The Burmese Cats were once the pride of Burma, being royal and temple cats in past centuries. This regal breed, however, had disappeared by 1930 from its namesake country of Myanmar. CERS led the effort in restoring this pride to the country by sourcing the regal Burmese Cats from overseas, breeding and reintroducing this valued pedigree back into the country. In collaboration with a local partner, the Intha Heritage House at Inle Lake, the breed has now prospered once again at the famed Burmese Cat Cafe and become a much visited destination of tourists to Inle Lake.
