Under our cattery name Mahabodhi we are involved in the breeding and showing of our Sacred Birmans for over 20 years. Long before that we always had cats living with us, but they were not pedigree cats. When we visited cats shows we were caught by the charms of the Sacred Birman, their beautiful appearance, the silky coat, the enchanting eyes and not in the least the very social characater.
The second cat we acquired (Katchanka’s Orlaya) was of show quality and from February 2000 we participated in many shows, in Holland and abroad. Over the years, by careful selection of the combination of parents, we succeeded in achieving a recognisable ‘look’ for our Birmans. A large number of Mahabodhi Birmans regularly have show successes, all over Europe.
Many Mahabodhi Birmans obtained championship titles up to the highest level during traditional exhibitions in The Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany. These titles can be found on the pedigreed of our kittens.
