The European Burmese is a cat breed that was developed in Europe from a cross between a Siamese and a Birman. The breed almost became extinct during World War II, but was revived in the 1950s by British and American breeders. The European Burmese is now recognized as a separate breed by most major cat registries.

The European Burmese is thought to have originated in France in the 1930s. A breeder named Madame Thaddée Bonnet crossed a Siamese with a Birman to create a new type of cat with Siamese-like markings and Birman-like colors. The resulting kittens were called "European Burmese" because they resembled the cats that were brought back to Europe from Burma (now Myanmar) by British soldiers.

During World War II, many of the European Burmese cats were killed or abandoned, and the breed came close to extinction. In the 1950s, British and American breeders began working to revive the breed. They imported cats from Burma (now Myanmar) and Thailand, and crossbred them with Siamese and Birmans to create cats that resembled the original European Burmese.

Today, the European Burmese is recognized as a separate breed by most major cat registries, including The International Cat Association (TICA), The Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA), and The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF).
