From a cross between a Persian cat and a Burmese cat, the Burmilla displays a medium height, a muscular body and a strong bone structure. Its head is triangular in shape with large yellow or green eyes.
But the Burmilla stands out above all for its tipped dress. In other words, the color is marked exclusively at the end of the hairs giving the coat a tanned white coloration. As for his temperament, the Burmilla has a reputation for being a playful and outgoing cat. Sweet and affectionate, however, he is a bit too talkative.
The Cornish Rex
It is a cat with an athletic and elegant silhouette whose greatest distinction lies in its short fur with notched hairs. The dense, curly hair gives the coat a wavy appearance which is particularly soft to the touch.
The coat can be white, but the breed standard allows all colors and patterns in all possible shades. As for his temperament, the masters describe for the most part an affectionate, sociable, sensitive cat who particularly likes cuddling. He has a tendency to meow and can hardly stand loneliness.
The Khao Manee
The Khao Manee is distinguished by its exclusively white short-haired dress. But he is more famous for the coloring of his eyes which can be small. That is to say in the shape of a precious stone, combining two shades of yellow and blue. But they can also be yellow or simply blue.

Another distinguishing feature of the Persian is the flattened shape of his face and his more or less squashed round nose. This physiological detail unfortunately predisposes him to some respiratory problems and snoring.
In general, the Persian is an affectionate cat. Rather a homebody, he tolerates solitude well. Calm and docile, he values tranquility and hates noise.
The Ragdoll is also part of the selection of cats known to beautifully wear the white dress. Originally from the United States, it is distinguished by its large size, its mid-length and soft coat, as well as its large oval eyes, always blue in color.
Its name owes it to its ability to soften and become particularly soft like a rag doll when you pick it up in your arms or on your knees. The Ragdoll is known for its affectionate, very sociable, discreet and easy-going side. Devoid of aggressiveness, he is carefree and has little awareness of danger.
The Siamese is a natural breed of cat among the oldest in the world and its short colourpoint coat can be white in color. He has a dark mask on his face and gorgeous sapphire blue eyes.

The Turkish Van
Native to the Lake Van region in Turkey from which it takes its name, it sports a mid-length fur as soft as cashmere.
The uniform white dress is the most popular because of its rarity. But it can be two-tone with a red, cream, black or blue tint on the head and tail, the rest of the body being white.
