Raising Tonkinese, one litter at a time.

We breed for Health, Temperment and Type. In that order.

Minkitty Cattery,  located in a western suburb of Cleveland on America's beautiful North Coast,  is a small in home cattery raising only Tonkinese kittens. Minkitty's Tonkinese kittens are raised as a hobby and not as a business. Our hobby is showing Tonkinese in CFA Cat shows. As a result of our hobby, we sometimes have kittens that we offer for sale to select homes.

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 and 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.

There 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 "designer breed"  or to try to "recreate" the Tonkinese breed by breeding back to the Siamese or Burmese. 

We never sell 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 coat 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 get e-mails and phone calls from people who say that they heard that Tonkinese are hypo-allergenic.  
Not True.  Here is a link to an article that can explain it a whole lot better than me.  Cat World - Hypoallergenic Cats

W don't ship


We don't ship and we prefer to meet the prospective family prior to commitment.  I ask that you visit my 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 down 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 this.

They never did this before but somehow they instinctively knew it was wrong.
