Tonkinese cats love to be around people. Their intelligence and energy levels mean they need lots of mental stimulation and opportunities to play. Tonkinese cats crave affection and attention, so as long as they are well socialised as young kittens they’ll enjoy being held, carried and cuddled. Unlike their Siamese cousins, Tonkinese cats are not aloof on first meeting and have been known to greet visitors at the door.
