Hi,

I'm new here and it took me forever to find the forums!

I'm planning on getting a new kitten. I just found out, by taking care of my daughter's two cats, that I'm not allergic to cats even though I tested positive to them almost forty years ago. I'm so excited because now I can get a cat!

I can't decide between a Tonkinese and a Burmese. I am at home a great deal because I have arthritis. I can get on the floor with the kitten but some days I may be too sore. I really want a kitten who is willing to sit in my lap but I also want one who's active and well, is everything these two breeds are supposed to be.

Is there a great deal of difference between the two? I understand that the Burmese has shorter hair so that's probably a good thing because one of my daughter's cats did bother me a bit when he was busy putting his face up to mine to tell me how much he loved me. But is the Tonks' fur that much longer?

So far, the breeders to whom I've spoken seem to favor the Tonk, even if they have some Burmese on the way.

And should I get a male or a female? I've studied a great deal about various cats but I never gave that a thought.

I appreciate any advice you can offer.

Thanks in advance!
