I got two tonks in January. I never owned a cat and for most of my life I actually disliked cats in favor of dogs. At some point my opinion changed and I decided to acquire a kitty.
I did the same type of research. Initially I wanted burmese for his character but then I was charmed by Tonkinese for their bland of beuty with the character.
Now about my innitial experience with them: I have to male kittens. They are not from the same litter but they are "cousins" - they grew up in the same house as I got them from the smae breeder. One is born in August 15 and the other in September 2.
There is quite a bit of difference in their character. They both are running afer me constantly. They want to be in the same room as I am, even though they are two they still want to be around me. The older boy is very affectionate from the day 1. He wants to cuddle with me and rolls down on the floor when he sees me. The younger one is less affectionate, he prefers to be near but does not like to be held, groomed, stroked.
Even though they wre growing in a family full of children cats and dogs (the breeder gave them really good socialization) they are shy. When guest come home they run and hide. I tried to take them as a gust to friend's house and the same happens there - they run under the sofa and I need to remove them from there, unless they would not show their face.
I guess their character will change as they grow. But overall they are very lovely.
