CFA has announced that the shorthair Burmilla has been advanced to full Championship status. This means that beginning May 1st, 2014, the shorthair Burmilla will be competing for titles in CFA.

The Burmilla originated in the United Kingdom in 1981. It is a cross between the Chinchilla Persian and the Burmese. Breed Standards were first produced in 1984, and the breed gained championship status in the United Kingdom in the 1990s.

In order to advance to Championship status in CFA, a new breed must be entered and presented in shows so that judges can evaluate and comment upon the breeds' type and temperament.

Burmillas were judged in 41 different shows throughout Regions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7. A total of 114 entries involving 56 different cats were shown in CFA. Only one of the cats was a Longhair, which is why only the shorthairs were advanced.

The Burmilla is accepted in the GCCF (United Kingdom), FIFe, CCCA (Australia), ACF and now in CFA.
