We are interested in purchasing a Birman kitten. Does anyone know of anybody who has any for sale. We are hoping to find one for a Christmas gift.

Instead of buying one from a breeder, see if you can find a rescue group that handles purebred cats, like Siamese cats, because they might have rescued one, or can tell you of other rescue groups that rescue related breeds. Some time ago, I adopted a purebred Tonkinese from our local animal shelter, so don't disregard that valuable resource, either. There are way too many cats and kittens in shelters and rescue organizations who need homes for the holidays, and adopting from one of those opens another slot for an animal on the streets.

Try petfinder on the Internet. It shows pets from various rescue groups.


I searched under Birman and found some young ones in New Jersey and Virginia, if you feel like taking a little trip!

Please don't buy from a breeder. You'll miss the most wonderful cats out there if you do. You can find rescue groups that are specific to a certain breed, heck I even found one today that is for Fat Cats!!! Breeders, while they want to keep the "beauty" of a certain breed, make the "mixes" less desirable. All of my cats have been rescues, I even had a purebred Siamese that was a rescue (she died of FIP a couple months back).
