American and European Burmese are two different types and have different standards.

American Burmese as a breed has 2 sub-types – contemporary and traditional.

And despite the fact that they are valuated by the same standard, the difference between them is significant.

Contemporary (extreme) American cats normally have a very short (almost flat) muzzle; their ears are placed quite high. But the main difference is not by exterior; these two types give completely different lines.
