ABOVE: Top S.A. Birman of 2001 and
2002, Supreme Premier Lao Sinh Schalimar (seal point neuter), owned by ElsjÚ Tilley and
bred by Nora Anderson (Lao Sinh Birmans).
The "Sacred Birman Fanciers Group of
Southern Africa (S.B.F.G.), was formed during 1997 in an effort to establish the then
relatively unknown Birman breed in Southern Africa. The aim of the Group was to bring
together the small number of Birman breeders and fanciers, so we could work together to
establish this magnificent breed here in our country. Today we can say that we have
achieved this goal, and the Birman is one of the most popular breeds in the country.
Our Group, which is an official Breed Group affiliated to the Southern Africa Cat Council (SACC), has grown into one of the largest Breed Groups in the country, with
almost 200 members from around the world.
We've held 7 very successful ALL BREEDS
CHAMPIONSHIP SHOWS over the last few years, and during 2001 we had over 50 Birmans making
their appearance on the show benches around the country. Looking at our lovely S.A.
Birman Gallery, it is clear that we have some truly magnificent cats in this country - the
result of the hard work and dedication of our Breeders.
Some of our objectives include:
- To encourage a greater interest, appreciation and
knowledge of the Birman cat in Southern Africa.
- To encourage responsible breeding with the purpose
of improving the breed.
- To cultivate friendship amongst Birman owners,
breeders and fanciers worldwide.
- To publish a bi-annual magazine containing Birman
and related issues.
- To educate and promote responsible pet ownership,
which include neutering and spaying of pets.
- To assist in the rescue and re-homing of Birman
- Furthermore we promote the breeding of Birmans with
good health, temperament and conformation, preserving the type of the Birman without
changing its features or breeding to extremes.
We welcome local and overseas members. For more
