I went to the vet yesterday and everyone that picked me up said I felt like a Burmese. My mom is a Calico and I'm not sure who my dad is. What do you guys think?

I would definitely say that you are not Burmese, but very likely part Birman or Himalayan.

You are beautiful but not a burmese I think. These are my reasons burmese are not pointed in colour like you are, they come in a range of colour including tortie but the colouring is even all over. They always have short hair and they have yellow to amber eyes. To be a burmese both parents must be known to be pure burmese. Look at the long haired pointed breeds like birman, ragdoll or himalayan which might be closer to your breed. I am a pedigree burmese look at my my page to compare I live with a pedigree ragdoll you may like to check her out too.Good luck with your search have fun, you are special whatever breed you are
