Breeding Tonkinese and Abyssinians
from Champion lines. Loving, home raised kittens
that are raised under foot



The Tonkinese breed was originally developed by crossing the Burmese and Siamese breeds.  They are a medium sized cat that is surprisingly dense and muscular, being neither cobby nor svelte.  Their coat is short, fine, soft and silky, with a lustrous sheen.

Tonkinese have a colorful and loving personality, which make them idal companions.  It is a socially oriented cat which enjoys people, other cats, dogs, and cehildren.  Their affectionate ways are impossible to ignore and they quickly endear themselves to family and visitors.  A highly intelligent and curious breed; they can be taught to retrieve soft balls and walk on the leash.  

Tonkinese come in twelve color/coat pattern combinations defined by base color (color of the points) and coat pattern (the shading of the overall coat). Base colors include Natural, Champagne, Platinum, and Blue. Coat patterns are point body (off-white with shading relative to the point color), mink body (rich, even, unmarked color) and solid body (slightly lighter color than point color with very little contrast between points and coat).

he Abyssinian is probably one of the oldest breeds of domestic cat. Some believe that they are decendants of cats of Ancient Egypt. What is certain is that the first Abyssinian cat was brought from Ethiopia to Great Britain in 1868.

Abyssinians are a medium sized cat with a well-muscled and athletic body. A very active and intelligent breed they can be taught to walk on a leash and play fetch.

Abys have great temperaments and make wonderful companions, although not lap cats, they are loyal and affectionate. They are wonderful companions who are highly interested in everything around them and what everybody is doing. No place ever goes unexplored, so you can expect to find them on counters, tables, refrigerators, book cases, and a top doors. Fortunately they are very careful and rarely knock anything off.

Abyssinians have a ticked coat that gives off a translucent quality. The four traditional colors are ruddy, red, blue, and fawn.
