I'm new to the cathobbyist and just wanted to say hello to all the cat lovers and specifically the Tonk lovers here.
My partner and I have been the proud servants of 2 crazy Tonks for the past 18 months. Teyla is our platinum mink female and Rugby is our platinum sold male. They will be 2 years old on 2/25. And they have stolen our hearts completely.
I've been a cat lover my whole life but only found out about Tonks after our beloved 18 year-old Siamese named Anna crossed the Rainbow Bridge in March '07. Once I'd read about the Tonkinese personality I was hooked, as was my partner.
Long story short, Teyla and Rugby ROCK!
Things my partner and I have learned since having our home taken over by Tonks:
1. Bathroom time is no longer sacred.
2. If we choose to yell at Rugby or Teyla for misbehaving, we will in turn be yelled at for having the audacity to attempt to discipline them.
3. Headbutts are an acceptable way of showing affection.
4. When our attention is needed, it is needed NOW!
5. There will no bed sheet removal or bed making without the approval and supervision of one, if not both, of our furballs.
6. Running away from me really means Teyla wants me to pet her as soon as I can catch her. (Took me forever to figure this one out!)
7. There will be no deviating from the morning ritual of drinking coffee while rubbing Rugby's belly. To him, there is no other way to start his day.
8. We are ruined for any other breed. Truly.
9. Being owned by Tonks will have your family and friends thinking you've gone the crazy route because conversations revolve around the latest thing they've done or the most recent picture you've taken.

K&C (proud servants of Teyla & Rugby)
Peace, Purrs & Headbutts!
