The Burmese Cat Club was formed in 1955 and is one of the largest cat clubs in the UK with a national and international membership. We exist to safeguard the wellbeing and the purity of the breed, and to encourage a wider appreciation of the unique qualities of Burmese cats.

The history of the Burmese breed in the UK is described in detail in our publications.



It is with great sadness that we bring you the news that one of our Vice-Presidents, Robine Pocock, passed away on February 2nd 2016. 

Robine was an active member of the Club for many years holding various positions within the Club. Robine was also one of the authors of the definitive book ‘The Burmese Cat’.

The funeral will be held on 24th February at 11.30 a.m. at Kent & Sussex Crematorium, Benhall Mill Road, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN2 5JJ.

It is the family’s wish that any donations people may wish to make can be made to ‘The Burmese Cat Club Benevolent Fund’ and sent to the Treasurer,  Mr Alan Ward,  12 Fairford Crescent, Downhead Park, Milton Keynes MK15  9AG.


We now have a Facebook page for Club Members to post photos of their cats, ask Burmese cat related questions and keep up to date with Club and Show news. 

You need to have set up a Facebook account beforehand and then enter 'Burmese Cat Club' in the search field and request to join our page.
