Cat Breed Description

The playful, people-oriented Tonkinese has a moderate body and a sleek, soft coat, and features a unique pattern known as "mink": it is pointed like the Siamese, but the body is colored in a shade harmonizing with the point color, and the eyes are aqua in shade.

The Tonkinese personality also blends many of the best qualities of the parent breeds of Burmese and Siamese: affectionate, intelligent, people-loving, and playful, and somewhat less vocal than the Siamese.

Notes: Darjeeling just got her premier title April 2017! She still looks gorgeous and is friendly. She hasn't been a lap cat lately as my younger cats monopolize our attention. In a quieter home she will thrive. Amicable with social cats and ignores our dogs. Grandma to my current show cats.
