Country of Origin: Canada


Tonkinese cats are born after breeding a Himalayan cat with a Siamese cat which has only occured in recent years. The Tonkinese breed of cat is actually very strong although that can be hard to tell by looking at it. This muscle adds a great deal of weight to the cat which again can be deceiving at first glance. These muscles assist a great deal in jumping so do not be surprised if you see this cat on top of various pieces of furniure throughout the house.

The color scheme of a Tonkinese cat is very similar to that of a Siamese. Their physical appearance though is all that they share in common with the Siamese. Their temperament is much different in the sense that they do not demand attention to the same degree that the average Siamese does.
