In the early 1960s, a Canadian breeder crossed a sable Burmese with a seal point Siamese, which produced a cat of intermediate type and coloring. She renamed this hybrid Siamese a Tonkanese. Tonks are sociable, intelligent, and curious like their Siamese side, and calm and adaptable like their Burmese ancestors. They like to talk, but their voices are less strident than the Siamese. These are engaging, entertaining creatures
Tonks are medium-size cats with good musculature; they are surprisingly heavy for their size. The head is a rounded wedge, and the ears are medium in size. Tonkinese that exhibit the mink pattern have distinctive aquamarine eyes.
Weight: 7-9 lbs.
