I have never seen a Tonkinese over here that was even remotely as stunning (in my opinion) as your Tonks are. I just think they have the perfect little faces. Beautiful photos. :)

Thank you. :redface:

It may be something to do with the UK type versus the US type. The breed is originally a cross between a Siamese and Burmese. The UK Siamese is much more wedge shaped and pointy than the US, much like the US Burmese is far rounder than the UK Burmese. So UK Tonks are more pointy with a less round head. In fact, US Tonks look very much like UK Burmese in shape. Also, US do not recognise the tabby pattern which Evie is.

I'm obviously biased but I much prefer our shape as well :rolleyes:

Hoping for kittens in August, so watch this space!
