Some cats are prone to getting crystals in their urine. This can be very painful and life threatening. Make sure your pussycat gets enough water to drink. If your kitty doesn't like to drink water, feed it wet food as well as dry. This will at least get some water into their body.
A cat will clean itself with paw and tongue after a dangerous experience or when it has fought with another cat. This is believed to be an attempt by the animal to soothe its nerves by doing something natural and instinctive. Hmm... I never knew.
The Burmese originated in the US in the 1930s from a cat named Wong Mau that was brought from Burma and crossbred with a Siamese. How cool are these breeds! I have cat sat for a few Burmese cats and their nature is so sweet and shy. I would own one of these in a heartbeat.
