Characteristics & Temperament.......Tonks are first and foremost "people cats". That is to say, they are very friendly and affectionate and love to be with their people. They are shoulder riders, often climbing or leaping up on their people, so as to be in the thick of things...they just know that you need their help...especially when you are busy on the computer. The colorful personality of the Tonkinese makes them the ideal companion. They will take possession of your lap or shoulder and keep you entertained inventing and playing games of tag and fetch, and of course, if there aren't any dogs or cats to play with, you will probably be it!

The Tonkinese is an intelligent, gregarious cat with a sense of humor. These cats are firmly convinced that humans were put on earth to love them; these are the cats that know they belong. They purred their way through seven years and four presentations to the board of directors of the Cat Fancier's Association in their pursuit of championship status, achieving their goal in 1984.

Caring for Tonkinese is as easy as feeding a well balanced diet, clipping their nails, providing a scratching post (and insisting that they use it!) Using a brush to groom them and of course the all important visits to the Vet for yearly check-ups and inoculations. These are indoor only cats and a thorough inspection of your home prior to your Tonks arrival (as you would for a 2 year old toddler!) will make it easier to enjoy this playful, mischievous new companion. Tonks are very playful and in a to watch, fun to be around and most of to snuggle with!


This is our Princess, she was our first Tonkinese and her baby,Sugar. Princess has recently crossed the Rainbow Bridge and we will always be grateful to her for teaching us that TONKS RULE!
