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 hey were not pedigree cats. When we visited cat 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 character.
The second cat we acquired (Katchanka’s Orlaya) was of show quality and from February 2000 we particpated in many shows, in Holland and abroad. Over the years, by careful selection ot the combination of parents, we succeeded in achieving a recognisable ‘look’ for our Birmans. A large number of Mahabohdi Birmans regularly have show successes, also abroad.
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 pedigrees of our kittens.
