The Oriental Tonkinese cat is in one word, sociable. The Oriental Tonkinese loves company and is likely to seek out a shoulder (it's also fond of heights) as soon as someone's in the room. It can be a good idea to have two Tonkinese cats ('Tonks') to keep each other entertained. It's worth bearing in mind that Tonks are adventurous cats, and have been known to wander off with strangers.

|Colour:||The Tonkinese can be plain or patterned, but comes in four main coat colours: platinum, champagne, natural or blue.|
|Coat:||Short, soft and silky, the coat doesn't need grooming as it is self-maintaining. However, this breed still enjoys the attention it receives when groomed.|
|Life span:||Tonkinese cats have a long life expectancy of around 15-18 years.|
Tonkineses sometimes suffer with epilepsy and are prone to hereditary and congenital conditions. Petplan dog insurance offers peace of mind that they will always be protected.
