"TOO CUTE" on Animal Planet

Silkbear European Burmese kittens were featured on the Animal Planet show "Too Cute" in an episode entitled "Musical Kittens". You can buy Season 4 Episode 7 on Amazon. There is some very entertaining footage of the kittens, particularly at the 9 week point.


Grand Champion Silkbear Clara Schumann has achieved the title Distinguished Merit, one of only 13 European Burmese in the USA to have achieved this, since she has 5 Grand Champion or Grand Premier offspring in the US (she also has a son GIP & GIC Silkbear Monet, DSM in Denmark.)


About Helen

  • Member of CFA European Burmese Breed Council
  • Board Member of Worldwide European Burmese Society

Helen first fell in love with a little red European Burmese female in Wales twenty-five years ago. Her name was Merrymew Red Jemima and she and her three little boys from Grand Champion Silkpaws Cream Cougar ran the household delightfully.

Thus it was natural to import another of these wonderful cats to Helen's home in Los Angeles, California, Champion Mayrling Drusilla of Silkbear (pet name Lani), bred by David Quincy in Poole, Dorset. One of her sons, Champion and Grand Premier Silkbear Starfire (pet name PopPop) has stayed around to purr loudly, love everyone and baby-sit. Her great-great-granddaughter Grand Champion Silkbear Vivace is now our breeding queen.
