Tonkinese

Despite its famous progenitors, the Burmese and Siamese, the Tonkinese is a relatively rare cat breed. With their slim, muscular body and short fur, these attractive cats combine many positive characteristics of their ancestors. Affectionate, sociable and curious, they are excellent for families that wish to spend a lot of time with their pet.

Since the 20th century we have managed to create a large number of new breeds of cats by breeding the original domestic cat with other wildcat breeds. Other breeds are the result of continuously breeding cats that have a spontaneously occurring mutation. However, unlike dog breeds, different breeds of cats are much more similar in their size and look. This is because dogs have a variety of different functions, whereas cats only have two main functions: hunting and being an adorable pet!
