WillowTonkinese are intelligent, vivacious, affectionate, playful, inquisitive and curious.  They can also jump onto shelves, benches and table tops. They love to get into mischief.

The overall impression of the Tonkinese is that of a well proportioned and well muscled cat of medium foreign type.  The Tonkinese should fall squarely between the types of the Burmese and the Siamese from which its own distinctive breed derives.

First generation Tonkinese are a cross between a Burmese and a Siamese and have managed to pick up the best qualities of both these breeds.
