Pretty good story, but the price information is somewhat out of date. As in way low. I have been breeding Tonks for many years, and last year (2012)we lost too much money selling them for $600 each. We only want to break even--we are a tiny, closed, non-show but still pedigree cattery, and I'm not posting our web site, 'cause this isn't about advertising. Plus, our wait list is already getting too long. :) We get a lot of people from both coasts, and oddly enough, Chicago too, where the price for a pedigree Tonk runs $1K - $2K, and the sky can be the limit. BTW, my very first Tonkinese lived to be 23 years old! In my experience, the more sturdily, stockier built cats tend to be healthier and live longer. If anyone knows of an actual pedigree Tonkinese kitten for only $400 I would definitely like to hear about it. (at least 6 generations Tonk only; mating a Burmese & Siamese does not meet the current definition) Thanks and good wishes to all!

    I got my first Tonk in 1971, which was the product of a Siamese/Burmese breeding.  I had grown up with Siamese and loved the color of the Burmese and had always hoped to get one; so, when I saw an ad in the paper for the Siamese/Burmese kitten for $15.00, I jumped on it and brought home my first Tonk (not knowing it at the time).  He lived to be 14 and I have always had one ever since.  My second one cost me $300, and 15 years later I paid $1,000 (in 2005) and I live in NH.  So, I agree that the price is way off and in the northeast, it is difficult to even find a breeder as they are few and far between; but for me, there is no other breed, so I go to cat shows semi regular to try to keep up on who is breeding in my area, so when the time comes, I can find another one.  In my opinion, the Tonk got the best of both worlds from their Siamese and Burmese ancestry and are the most loving cat with personality plus.  I hope to never be without one.

i have a male sphinx 1 yr old the lady that I purchased him from told me the mom didn't feed them so she syringe feed the 5 of them. When I got him home he was very cuddley he wanted to go my neck and suck on it every morning. At 4:30 am he would start this. He's gotton better as far as its not at 4:30 am but he still want to do this and he wants the left side of my neck. He will come and paw at my back making this little cry noise so I decieded I wasnt going to roll over I just wanted to sleep. Boy that's not what happened. My cat wanted to the end of the bed and glared at me and then lunged into my face. I threw my arm up and took the bite on my arm four puctures and claw marks this has happen about 6 times and each time its becauce I made him mad and every time he would bite and leave puntures from his fange teeth. How can I stop him. I've tried hitting with my pillow yelling no he a great little guy and very loving hope someone can help thanks theresa

    Sphinx cats have some really peculiar and odd little traits although attacking a person I have never heard. Jumping - big time and attention and play yes but not attacking. I'd have him sleep in a different room where the kitty kitter is located. Put a kitty bed in the laudry room or bathroom along with the litter and let him sleep in there. Hopefull in a couple of weeks - he forgets about the neck and the game he probably think you are playing.

    Okay you probably need to figure this out cause its weird..... maybe your cat wants the sexuals.

    Keep your house cold and get a small electric heater, he will stay by that or try biting him back.

I lost my simese at age 15 and it has been the only animal or child I have ever loved. I need another baby to look like my boy and I need it very soon.

    I am sorry. I had my kitty for 17 years. Her name was Snooppy, cuz she was. She was 1/2 siamese and 1/2 alley cat. I still miss her. You have to get another kitty.
