I never finished the story.

The babies started to leave for their new homes in early September and are all doing very well.

Purple girl is now called Tin Tin and lives with another Tonk. Her owners may show her next year.
Yellow girl is now called Flora and went to live with a lovely family with a cat and a dog (and several chickens).
Orange boy is called Harry and is best friends with a little boy. They want another kitten next year!
Green boy is Monty. He went to live with a friend of my husbands at work. He has a big ginger cat as a companion and loves his new owners:

Blue boy is now called Teddy and went to live with another Lilyput tonk from last years litter (Mimi). He has been shown lots so i see him very often. He is a real Teddy bear, so cuddly:

Pink girl is now called Dolly. She never went to her new home because her cross eyedness got worse. After seeing a specilist vet she was diagnosed with bilateral cataracts which required surgery. It was decided that she was better off staying here to have all the treatment and then seeing how she was. She may still go to her original home but we will wait to see. After her surgery 6 weeks ago Dolly has recovered well. She can obviously see much better. She plays chase the tail which she's never done before and she climbs the curtains!! She is a typical naughty tonk now!

White girl also stayed here. She is going to be a breeder next year. We called her Candy. She has been shown and has done very well!! We had 3 Best of Breed Lilyput Tonkinese at the Supreme cat show.

I also imported a new girl from Germany. She is a blue tabby tonkinese and brings some fresh blood into the UK. Her name is Anna and she is such a delight. She is around the same age as Candy and Dolly so they all play together nicely!!

Sorry for the big essay but i know some of you like to see the crazy Tonks!!!!

Thanks for the update. That's such a shame about Dolly, I hope she finds a forever home, sounds like you are certainly doing right by her though. I like the Monty picture especially well.

So happy for the recap and all the latest pictures. They are all spectacular kitties! Sad to hear that Dolly needed surgery, but it appears to have been very successful. Can't wait to hear about the next litter.

They are so gorgeous! I'm glad Dolly is doing well now and able to see. It sounds like you have been really busy :mrgreen:
I have to say I have always adored your cat's and I think they are all equally beautiful BUT Anna :eek: she is a stunning little beastie!

Thank you so much.

Anna is stunning. I just love her and her stripey legs make me smile every time I see her. Her eye colour is fantastic as well. Can't wait to see what she produces!

Dolly has done so well. I'm so pleased with the results. She will always have vision problems as she has no lenses at all, she is long sighted. But it doesn't really slow her down. The vet is fantastic and has hinted that he would love dolly to live with him but he'd have to talk to his wife... She is next there around February so we will see then!

It was all covered by insurance as I cover my breeding girls with Agria vet insurance. It covers kittens till they leave me or are 20 weeks old. Providing the cover is started for each kitten before that point then any problems are covered, all pre existing medical conditions declared. So Dolly's eyes are covered for life providing we never break her cover. It's fully transferable as well so it really is peace of mind!

Aw, they are all so beautiful! Especially Dolly! I love your Tonk updates! Thank you for sharing!

One of mine has vision issues that are similar to Dolly's. She will find a special, wonderful home with people who think she is just perfect!

Great pictures! I am still wondering how you got them all to stay in the basket for the group photo. I enjoyed seeing them "grow up" - thanks for posting.

My husband stands by me waving a feather toy above the lens of the camera... He retrieves stray kittens and replaces them and I shoot away! Most don't come out well at all.

They were 7 weeks old in that picture. After that it was too difficult to get them all to stay still and be interested in the same thing!
