A Lilac Burmese kitten will be a very pale gre, but there is quite a bit of variation in the lilac colour. Some can look more brown depending on the lighting on the photo, and some can have quite dark faces. You can distinguish them from the cream Burmese because they don’t have the warm gold colour which, as with all Burmese kittens, deepens as they mature. The red Burmese are similar to the cream, but they have gold markings on their face. My darling George was a cream.
Being a committed cat lover deprived of cat guardianship for so long, after my time with George, I miss the warm cuddles and other joys of caring for a cat, so … my dear blog followers, you are the first to hear the news and see the photo. The cat column is not dead. Meet Loki, my new lilac Burmese kitten. This photo was taken a couple of days ago. He’s roughly a month old and will be ready to come home with us sometime after the 13th of Feb. You can look forward to many more lovely photos as the little boy grows.
He’ll never be Twitchet, the cat from the Diamond Peak Series, or Merlin from the Prunella Smith books, that cat will always be George, but you never know, Loki (or whoever we call him) will have his turn in my writing. Perhaps he’ll be a feature in the Happiness Hints books I’m working on; We’ve discussed names and brainstormed a long list, but my daughter Rose and I like Loki for a name (Norse god of mischief) and when we saw him, we thought he looked like a Loki.
What do you think? Any name suggestions?
