Colour: deep blue
Structure: slightly long body. Males must be more massive than females
short and strong
Gloves: The special feature of the Sacred Birman is the white feet, called "gloves", on both the front and hind feet.
These gloves must be absolutely pure white. They sould stop at the articulation or at the transition of toes to metacarpals, over which they should not extend.
Slightly longer white gloves on the hind feet can be tolerated.
On the back of the hind feet the white gloves end in points. The ideal "gauntlets" end in inverted "V's" and extend 1/2 to 3/4 of the way up the hock.
Lower or higher gauntlets are acceptable but should not go beyond the hock.
It is important that the gloves are equally long and show symmetry of white, on either the two front or the two hind feet, or even better, on alle four feet.
Of medium length, forming a plume
Structure: Long to semi-long, according to the actual parts of the body:
short on the face, gradually growing longer on the cheeks to a full frill, long on the back and the flanks.
Colour: Shows all characteristics known from the Siamese pointed cats, but all four feet are white (gloves).
The points include the face, ears, legs, tail and genitals.
The points shall be even and in good contrast to the body colour.
Body colour: refer to the General Part for Siamese pointed cats.
(even, slight shading on the flanks permissible but there must be a clear contrast between the points and body colour)
Only in adult cats are the colour of the points and the body colour fully developed.
REMARKS: The Sacred Birman shows a special morphology, which is unique for the breed.
