Raising Tonkinese, one
litter at a time.
Litter born July 19th.
Mom is Miss Cindy Smudge and dad is Jumping Jack Flash.
Three boys and three girls. Two Champagne Solid, one
Champagne Mink and three Champagne Points.
One Champagne Point boy left. (this boy was originally reserved but the perspective owners decided to take two of my next litter).
Caught on Camera. (they never did this before but somehow they instinctively knew it was wrong) Champagne Solid Female and Champagne Point Male.
Male is available.
Champagne Pointed Male - Still Available. He has "Paul Newman" blue eyes. Light blue reflects red in the camera. He is very sweet (when he's not ripping up TP), and loves to sit on my lap.

Minkitty's Moon Shadow
Is now living in Newton Falls with Vickie
From Vickie: I just wanted to give you an update on MoonShadow. She is doing very well she still hasn't come in direct contact with Olliver (the dog)yet tho. At first,she hid under the furniture whenever he was around but now she will sit on the bed or tree & observe him.
She is very outgoing, she was a big hit at the veterinarian, all the techs & vet passed her around & played with her and she ate it up. They couldn't believer how bold she was & unafraid. She is doing good with me she follows me around & LOVES to play with a feather toy on a string with a stick. she is eating good & she comes in with me at bedtime tho she sleeps better some nites than others, I think she might have her days & nites mixed up alittle bit & when she wakes up she wants me up...she nibbles on me or licks my eybrows or kneads on my arm purrs, & meows. She is so much fun!! And she loves being held & cuddled as much as getting rowdy with all of her toys.
Bonnie and Frank picking up Alfie from the March litter.
From Bonnie: Alfie continues to grow and is so sweet. He's over 5#'s now. His fur is starting to change and get more highlights. Alfie now owns the house and his new family. His human sister arrived from Chicago to meet and play with her new baby brother for this next week.
We're so glad the new babies born on the date we picked Alfie up are doing well. Thanks so much for allowing me to hold one of those precious babies.
My Tonkinese like to surprise me. Cindy Smudge likes to give me works of art. I had to share.
I get e-mails and phone calls
people who say that they heard that Tonkinese are
Not True. Here is a link to an article that can
explain it a whole lot better than me.
World - Hypoallergenic Cats
Minkitty Cattery, located in a western suburb of Cleveland
on America's beautiful North Coast, is a small in
cattery raising only
Tonkinese. Minkitty's kittens are raised
a work of love and a hobby
and not as a
Our kittens are registered with CFA, which is the world's largest
registry and 100 years old in 2006.
We only breed Tonkinese to
Tonkinese and kittens come with an 6 generation CFA Tonkinese
pedigree. Our blood lines are North American. The
traditional color/pattern Tonkinese was established in the US
Canada and the largest gene pool for the traditional
color/patterns exists right here in North America. Because of
the large gene
pool these cats tend to be rather healthy with no genetic problems.
is no lack of interest in a CFA registered Tonkinese.
As a result,
I do not find any reason to mix two breeds to create a
breed" or to try to recreate the Tonkinese breed. These are
and result in a mix breed which is not accepted in CFA.
our kittens younger that 12 weeks and usually wait until 14-16 weeks.
This is the recommendation
of just about every registry, the Winn
Foundation and various
feline health organizations.
We show our Tonkinese regularly. As a result, all
kittens have proper eye color, proper ear set, and a clear
without tabby markings (barring or stripping along the legs or tail).
The colors are correct for the
color/pattens and the kittens are bred
to CFA standard.
We don't ship and we prefer to meet the
prospective family prior to commitment. I ask that you visit
home/cattery when I have kittens available for selection.
I feel it is improtant for you to see how my kittens are raised. At that time you can pick your kitten and put
a deposit. Once the kittens are spayed or neutered, you can come back
and pick up the kitten (or we can meet half way).
Thank you for taking to time to read
