Burmillas might be playful even into adulthood.

, Burmillas are generally healthy. However, they are predisposed to two conditions: polycystic kidney disease and allergies. If your cat has either of these conditions, you might have a Burmilla on your hands.Alternately, if you know you have a Burmilla based on other criteria, have your cat screened for these conditions to prevent or attenuate health problems that might arrive later.

, If you’re still unable to determine whether you have a Burmilla cat based on its behavior and appearance, you could get its genome partially sequenced. The vet will check your cat’s DNA by taking a sample from the inside of its mouth, then checking it against that of a known Burmilla specimen. To have DNA testing performed on your cat, contact your vet.
