Burmese - A cat. This animal shared daily worship with his master, the chief priest Mun-Ha, in front of the statue of the goddess Tsu-Kyan-Kse. When the priest was killed, the cat climbed on to his shoulders and looked hard into the face of the statue. The cat's yellow eyes became blue, like those of the goddess, and the white fur became the brown and gold of the present day Birman cat. In some references, referred to as Sinh.
