I love the on of him face on the camera.

He has such a cute look.

My Tonkinese are very vocal, we have conversations. I think Evie sounds more Siamese than the others.

Thank you! He's not only good looking but has an amazing character and personality as well. It took a lot of convincing on my wife's behalf for me to look for another breed and not just straight go for another Siamese.

When we were thinking of bringing in Tosh (Adniosh Touchstone our F1 stud) I did a lot of research and contacted many of the line's breeders way back on the Burmese side including some sideshoots used in breeding programmes looking for health issues. The immediate Siamese line was known to me and a great font of Siamese knowledge, Julia C-McF (who found Tosh) was also a great help. The F1 Lintama girl, was found via Julia as well.

Researching lines is very important.

Not quite the same Old Style (or Classic or Old Fashioned or Traditional) are original lines carried through the generations keeping the original Siamese look They do have a wedge shaped head but it is not extreme and the ears are different; bodies are heftier as well. Appleheads are an American round headed Siamese bred from a Modern Siamese x another round headed breed (not sure which breed was used, something like the American Shorthair I would imagine).

EvilGnome. Your Siamese boy is a very nice looking boy. Not too extreme at all :biggrin:

Wow, that's some interesting info. Do they change a lot once they get older or is this more or less how he'll look like in a few years time?

Difficult to say how he will turn out when he reaches fully maturity. He could bulk out or be a long, lean boy. It is all down to genetics. The parents should give you some idea of what to expect.

A good wedge Measurement from jawline to base of ear = base of ear over head to base of other ear = ear tip to ear tip

Think I have it right!

In that case looking at his parents they were a bit more lean than he currently is and the head was definitely more wedge shaped. He has a lot of good cats behind him so we're lucky in a way. He's definitely a great cat though, totally different from what we expected him to be.

Absolutely, you can only go so far on looks. I doubt I'd like him as much as I do now if he scratched everything and bit us at every occasion. Even with his blue eyes :)
