Combination of Siamese and Burmese

Development of this breed began in the 1960s, starting with a combination of Siamese and Burmese cats. Today’s Tonkinese is a medium-sized, muscular cat with short, silky fur and stunning aqua-coloured eyes. His head is wedge-shaped like the Siamese, though a little more rounded. Another trademark of the breed is its distinctive oval paws.
