I cannot begin to describe how wonderful and amazing the Tonkinese breed is. My cat Mina, whom I had to put to sleep today due to complications from an illness, gave me more than 15 years of the most loving companionship I ever thought possible. She was my constant companion, sleeping with me under the blanket at night and licking my nose by day. She was the sweetest creature of any species I have ever known and I will be getting another Tonk to share my life with as soon as I can. Get a… Read Full Review

This is the most garbage breed of cat I have ever associated with. The god-awful mass of shedding, sticking, cashmere-like fur alone is annoying enough. If you are going to have any sensitivity to animal hair, this breed is utter trash, but at the very least, be informed that unless this cat is going to be an only pet, the loose hair will be horrendous. My Tonkinese is actually my husband's cat. He had him since he was a kitten. I've been trying to cope with it for about 7-8 yrs. He… Read Full Review

If you want an intelligent companion in feline form then Tonkinese are for you. If want a cat who will be interested in your activities and will make friends with the whole family then Tonkinese are for you.If you want a cat that looks like a cat with an extra zing and the most glamorous coat and eye colour then get a Tonkinese. This cat will not be a ground-based ornament but will be a true companion. It has no draw-backs for the genuine cat-lover, one who wants a cat not a pretty cushion… Read Full Review

We have 2 tonk mixes (maybe the best way?) - one male one female. They are utterly different in personality so I'd say its as much down to the cat as the breed. One is quite aloof but she likes to be cuddled (on her terms) regularly. One is completely mad, but in a good way, and follows us round the house like a dog. In fact he plays fetch like a dog too....maybe he's a tonk / dog cross?!… Read Full Review

Our cat came into the house and within a hour had made it his home. Nobody sits down in our house without the cat jumping into there lap and anybody's bed will do at the end of the day. No door can be closed on this cat (no not even the toilet). I don't think he has stopped purring since we brought him home. No-one in the house can say they have been lonely ever again with this cat because he never leaves your side or shoulder… Read Full Review

There are days when I don't see my Tonkinese cat, unless it's time to eat, of course. My husband claims that they "hang out" every morning, but I have never witnessed it in action. We have had him for about a year, and only now does he occasionally sit in the same room with us at night. That doesn't mean that we can touch him, but at least he is visible. So I would not recommend this breed, because out of all the cats I have had, he is by far the hardest to get along with… Read Full Review

I love the Tonkinese breed. Not as pointy-Siamese looking due to the Burmese influence, they are very affectionate and great fun.
Ours is an endless source of entertainment, but must be frequently rescued from inside dressers, cupboards and closets, which must ALWAYS be investigated if someone opens them. They are not as helpless as the breeder would have had me believe, promptly swatting our dog across the nose upon first meeting. He now gets along just fine with the dog… Read Full Review
