Tonkinese Cat - Breed Profile

The Tonkinese Breed Profile submitted by Catdancing Tonkinese - (Pictured: Natural mink and Champagne Point Tonkinese females)

Breed Description and Pictures Submitted by: Catdancing Tonkinese

History - The Tonkinese blends the best features of its ancestors into one beautiful, medium-sized cat that is remarkably dense and muscular. Whether appearing in the coat pattern of its Burmese predecessor, with sparkling gold-green eyes; the pointed pattern of its Siamese ancestor, with glittering blue eyes; or the “mink” coat pattern with its unique aqua eyes, whatever coat pattern or color, they are a unique breed blending the best of the Burmese and Siamese into one beautiful & loving cat with moderate head type. Their name is derived from the Gulf of Tonkin in Asia next to Burma and Siam.

Colors and Coats Types Available - Platinum, Blue, Natural, Champagne in Point, Mink & Solid coat patterns with blue to green eyes.

Grooming and Care - Easy care short hair. Combing regularly will minimize shedding

Best Suitable Environment - Indoor family environment. They are happy with one person or several in the family. Most prefer another cat to run and play with. Two Tonks are happier than one. They have plenty of love for each other as well as their humans.

Personality Traits - The colorful personality of the Tonkinese make them ideal companions. They will take possession of your lap and shoulder, and they will supervise your activities. They are warm and loving, and highly intelligent. They are strong willed, and their humans are wise to use persistent persuasion in training them.

Much has been written about how friendly and outgoing Tonks are, however they are still CATS, and are not bomb proof. They love children, but will duck for cover when they become TOO rowdy or loud.
