The European Burmese cats were founded from a line developed in the 1930s in North American. The Burmese and the European Burmese developed from this same line. A small walnut-brown female cat was acquired. A selective breeding program was established to Siamese cats in North America. By the 1940s the Burmese gained popularity in the United Kingdom. The breed spread to the United Kingdom where the breeding was to the Siamese cats as well. A different breeding program was then selected and today the European Burmese cats are very different from the European Burmese.
