HistoryIn 1979 I bred my first ticked tabby with Burmese colour restriction. I believe I was one of the very first - the Asian was not yet "invented". These cats were registered as tabby Burmese. On the picture below one of the cats from that early breeding:

Around the same time a breeding program was started in New Zealand to breed silver Burmese,
using a tabby Burmese/Siamese hybrid and a silver tabby domestic shorthair. The first silver
tabby Burmese was born on 25/12/1982. After some years of selective breeding (mating to Burmese,
always retaining the silver inhibitor) the silvers received recognition with the NZCF in 1986.
The ticked tabbies I breed now originate in New Zealand. I acquired
visitors since 25/06/2000
