Malayan Cat is an alternative name for a certain type of Burmese cat. The Malayan is simply a Burmese in all the Burmese solid colors except sable (and chocolate in Britain).

Purist breeders felt that any other color, such as blue, champagne or platinum, should be classified separately. To satisfy them, the name Malayan Cat was introduced in the United States in 1980 to cover all non-traditional Burmese color variants.

The Malayan Burmese is an adoring, friendly, affectionate cat, who loves nothing more than to give and receive love.
