Tonks are a blend of their parent breeds. They aren't as svelte or as 'whippy' as today show Siamese, but neither are they as rounded as Burmese. They should not look like a bad representation of either the Siamese or the Burmese. Thier purr-sonality also reflects this duality. Tonk have retained the socialness of the Siamese tempered by the sweetness of the Burmese. Or, as I like to say: Tonks: Siamese on valuim, Burmese on speed. They are, as a general rule (though we all know there are exceptions to every rule) a shoulder riding, in your lap, under foot, has to 'help' you with what ever you're doing kind of breed. There are 3 patterns: Mink, pointed, and solid and four accepted colors: Platinum, natural, blue and champangne. Eye color is linked to pattern. Minks should have the signature aqua eyes, solids should have green-gold eyes, and pointeds should have blue eyes. I emphise the word SHOULD. A kitten with the 'wrong' eye color may not be able to be shown as a champion or an alter but will still make a WONDERFUL companion for many years. Most Tonk easily live into their late teens to early twenties. As for male vs. female I find there really is no difference especially once spayed or neutered. My girls were just as loving and affectionate as my boys. I hope you find this information useful. In closing I leave you with these parting words: You don't own a Tonk, a tonk owns YOU! (and) Just remember, Tonks are like potato chips: You can't have just one!
