About Tonkinese Cats

Champagne Mink Female Tonkinese

Tonkinese are strong, playful, intelligent and affectionate cats. They are known for being very social and they love to be near their humans at most times. They are very playful and amusing to watch them play and explore their worlds. They make an excellent companion for children and adults and they get along very well with other cats and dogs.

Tonkinese cats come in four colors: Platinum, Champagne, Blue and Natural and present in three coat patterns which are called Mink, Pointed, and Solid. Mink coated Tonkinese have aqua eyes which is the distinguishing feature of this coat pattern, while the Pointed Tonkinese coat pattern have blue eyes and the Solid Tonkinese coat pattern has green eyes.

Regardless of the variety of color or coat pattern all Tonkinese have the same charming personality and love to be loved.

GENERAL: the ideal Tonkinese is intermediate in type, neither cobby nor svelte. The Tonkinese should give the overall impression of an alert, active cat with good muscular development. The cat should be surprisingly heavy. While the breed is considered medium in size, balance and proportion are of greater importance

Mink colors:

body color in the mink colors, should be a rich, even, unmarked color, shading almost impercepti- bly to a slightly lighter hue on the underparts. There must be a dis- tinct contrast between body color and points. Eye color: aqua, a definitive characteristic of the mink color pattern.

NATURAL MINK: Body: medium brown. Ruddy highlights acceptable. Points: dark brown. Nose leather: dark brown. Paw pads: medium to dark brown (may have a rosy undertone).
