The Tonkinese are the "happy medium" of blended characteristics from the old fashioned Siamese, and the traditional Burmese. Tonkinese are sturdy, vigorous, alert and active. They have the best traits of both which makes them warm, loving, highly intelligent, and at times mischievous, but most of all, devoted. Their colorful personality makes them ideal companions. They are very people oriented and love to be a member of the family, weather it be playing, eating or sleeping!
"Tonks" come in four rich colors that range from dark to light brown (natural or champagne) or gray (blue or platinum) and three fur patterns; pointed (blue eyes), mink (blue to green eyes with aqua the desired shade) and solid (green to gold eyes).The Traditional Burmese carry surprising weight for their size and have often been described as “bricks wrapped in silk.” Their coats are very short, satin-like in texture, and generally require little grooming other than daily petting. They have a rounded head, large expressive eyes and a very sweet expression. They are highly intelligent, people-oriented, good with children, tolerate other pets, and if encouraged they'll carry on conversations with you.
"Burms" come in four beautiful colorings; rich warm sable (brown), champagne (honey beige) , blue (medium blue) and platinum (silvery grey). They have yellow to gold eye color.
