About this group
Chatty, playful and indulgent, Tonkinese are wonderful companions to anyone who can keep them in the luxury to which they’re accustomed.
Derived from the Siamese and Burmese varieties, the ‘Tonk’ is an intelligent and extremely engaging cat. Less demanding than a pure Siamese and with a much more mellow meow, these are cats whose demands on your time and attention you will find charming and flattering, rather than annoying and insistent.
Everything is a game to the Tonk. The tails of comrade cats, bits of string, your fingers - all are up for grabs. They love all of life’s pleasures and will reward you with love and affection if you keep them happy and stimulated. This playfulness does not mean that they are hyperactive, though, so don’t worry about the furniture. Just give them plenty of toys to play with and their wonderfully mischievous side will only come out in good ways.
The Tonkinese are trim and muscular cats that come in four main colours with a variety of patterns and gold or blue-green eyes.
