"I care not for a man's religion whose dog and cat are not the better for it." ~ Abraham Lincoln "An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language." ~ Martin Buber "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." ~ Anatole France "In the beginning, God created man, but seeing him so feeble, He gave him the cat" ~ Warren Eckstein

Tonkinese Cat

Tonkinese Cat, the only breed to originate from Canada. The Tonkinese was developed in the early 1960's by crossing a Seal-point Siamese and a Sable Burmese. A Siamese breeder, decided she wanted to develop a more moderate, balanced breed of cat. She crossed Siamese with Burmese and called them “Tonkinese.” When you look at a Tonkinese, you should see neither a Siamese nor a Burmese, but a unique moderate breed with its own look.

Tonkinese cats are commonly trim and muscular cats. They are typically heavier than they appear to be, due to their very muscular bodies. They have a distinctive oval-shaped paw, and a modified wedge-shaped head, with large ears set towards the outside of their head. The Tonkinese coat is exceptionally soft and dense with a wonderful sheen, and can take up to 16 months to reach it's true color. The coat comes in shades of Natural Mink, Blue Mink, Honey Mink, Champagne Mink and Platinum Mink. From it's blue-green, almond-shaped eyes to it's soft, beautiful coat, the Tonkinese combines the best qualities of two very popular oriental breeds.

A Tonk is two types of cat in one body. One mode is active, but not hyper, with a muscular body. They play fetch, climb cat trees and fly through the house at warp speed. The second mode is cuddly and loving, although they can be mischievous if they become lonesome or bored. They are not an aloof, independent cat; they are best for someone who wants a lap cat. They are dog-like in that they require and demand attention. They love riding on shoulders, so do not be alarmed if your Tonkinese jumps on your shoulders, as the breed is known for its love of heights. Kisses are also common, and no, they are not trained to kiss the judges – they figured this out on their own. Unlike most breeds of cat, they are reported to sometimes, or even often, engage in fetching, and they can often be found perched on the highest object in the house.
