I have had 2 siamese one 18yrs, one 17yrs. I now have lilly, a tonkinese, she was 2 yrs when I got her. This is the most wonderful cat I have ever had or seen, she is so gentle, loving, funny, follows me like a dog, sleeps against me,comes when I call her name, would highly recommend the tonkinese to any cat lover!

    I got my first Natural Mink Tonkinese, Cheesecake in 1985 -he was bred from a Sable Burmese mother and a Seal Point Siamese father - Cheesecake was 17 years old when he got lympho sarcoma-cancer - it broke our hearts but we had already fallen in love with Tonks - we also had Sasafrass Marie at the same time - she was a Seal Point Siamese girl that lived until she was 19 years old - we lost her to heart and kidney failure. Again ours hearts broke. We now have two Tonks - Charlie is a Champagne Mink 8 year old sweetest kitty boy with the kindest heart and soul we have ever known. Oliver is a Blue Point 3 year old very active and loving kitty boy. Both are very athletic and extremely smart and always polite to everyone including the vets. We wouldn't be without our kitties whether they be Siamese or Tonkinese - you just can't beat them!

    We have a blue point Tonkinese called Oscar, he is only 9 months old and is the best cat we have ever had. He is so affectionate and loves lots of cuddles. At night we carry him up like a baby and he settles into sleep with my children taking it in turns which one he will sleep with and there he stays until the morning. When he is hungry he is very vocal and he does eat alot ! He is just so adorable.

    I am a resident of Somerset West, Cape Town, South Africa and live with two female Tonks and a wife, affectionately known as "the three blonde bitches", who are all amazingly adorable. The older Tonk, Lulu (Talulah) a solid lilac is 6 years old, a bit skittish and shy, who loves as much human attention as she can get. She grew up with a Bengal, who has since passed on due to kidney failure, and both grew up in our garden where they learnt to climb the highest trees, catch birds, guinea fowl, moles, rats, mice, chameleon's and any other insect that moved. The only problem is that their catches were brought into the house either as gifts or to be ripped apart which eventually required many carpets to be replaced. The younger s a 2 year old caramel named Kapri, full of mischief, gets constantly locked into a wardrobe or cupboard and is the most affectionate animal we have ever owned. I've never seen her climb a tree nor catch prey, and basically spends her time indoors unless we are outside. She's also the official greeter to any visitor and in fact friends often come to visit and cuddle her. Thankfully we have king size bed so there is space under the duvet for all of us at night especially during the cold winter months. If you haven't owned a Tonkinese you haven't lived with a cat yet!

I have a cat that looks exactly like these cats. Everything I have read on here describes him exactly. He's seven months old now. I love him very much. His name is chocolate I just wish I knew for sure if he was a havana brown.

I would really like to adopt a havanna brown. My dad saw them on a cat breed show and fell in love with them. He really wants one. We have a calico and a main coon. Both are not registered. We have all our pets spade or neutered. We do not want to breed. If anyone has a kitten or young cat female preferred I am willing to pay for shipping it doesn't even have to be a pure breed. We will not show or breed. It is for a family pet. My mom is disabled with fibromialgia and my dad is retiring this fall. They love cats and will have alot of time to spoil them! dtcma@msn.com or dtmwykoff@gmail.com thanks

    I have a beautiful male havana brown which I am looking to place in a good home. I acquired him 1 month ago but my other male burmese cat is very unaccepting of him.

I think my chocolate brown cat is accidental as well. He's gorgeous chocolate brown everything, no tabby markings but one little white spot near his eye. He has green/gold eyes, he's a little chubby and doesn't look slender like legitimate havana's but his facial features are the same, nose, etc. He's very anti social with strangers. Hates dogs but eventually tolerated my new puppy. Loves to be outside but I limit that, too many strays in the neighborhood. He fetches, or at least he used to. He's 7 now, not as active as he used to be, he used to be content with a rolled up piece of foil in a ball and would fetch that, played for hours! He'll sit at the window and call the birds in the most strangest meow/howl. He's social with the family, only my mom and daughter, not my dad but doesn't hesitate to fall asleep at his feet. He likes to be touched but NEVER carried and will NEVER sit on your lap, EVER. Once, when he was a kitten, he fell asleep on my tummy, like a little baby, but like I said, ONCE. Other than that, he's pretty vocal, he scratches at your bedroom door if he's out of food or water. He's a wonderful cat and his vet loves him, always takes him around to show him off, which is weird, don't know how he does it, he hates to be carried.

    I am trying to find out how likely/rare it is to find a non-bred chocolate kitty. My solid chocolate girl was rescued from a feral colony, most of whom are solid black. No other brown cats. Plus I'm pretty sure which ones are her mother and sister - and they're both solid black. She too has that puppy way of "heeling" when I walk through the house, a somewhat odd vocal quality (mine sort of bleats like a goat!), and is pure muscle. Looks almost identical to the one in the photo at the top of this page.

I rescued a cat at an animal shelter which I found out to be an ocicat. She is quite remarkable and beautiful. She has such dog-like qualities and loves to play fetch. She is quite talkative and is in everyone's business. My husband who is not a cat person happens to love this cat. She is 8 months old and is just about as big as my other adult cat. I read that they can grow for 2 years. Looking forward to seeing if that is true. What a great find!

    I bottle fed a little kitten born by a Calico.. He is long and skinny 3Mo now, and apparantly will be very tall. He is very affectionate and VERY PLAYFUL!
    I take a pair of fuzzy sock and warm them in the dryer, and he goes wild! He runs with them and growls and hovers over them, and dont dare try to take them away! He plays tug of war with them and you can chase him.. He loves to play fetch, just like a dog? My Calico at home mothers him and keeps him very clean.. LOL we love him. Your the first to hear of your cat acting like a dog! Try the sock thing, its hilarious..

    Hi, I have just seen your comment on animal world. I breed Ocicats in the UK. They are brilliant fun and super pets. I have no idea where you are but if you check out World of Ocicats you will find breeders listed in many countries. Hope you find one near to you. My website is www.yesso.co.uk

I would love to know how common is a chocolate brown cat that isn't a Havana Brown. We just adopted a young male that is chocolate colored, with black tabby markings. He has white feet, tummy and a white splotch on his muzzle. Definitely NOT a pure breed. Our vet says he will stay brown, and that she has not seen one with this much brown on him. Is brown an unusual color for an American shorthair?

When I was littler my stepsister had one of these cats, and when she left to go to college, the cat stayed with me for the five or so years left of her life. (i think she was like thirteen years old when she died.) She was the most beautiful, sweet, & soft cat I've ever had. Her voice was really high-pitched, which made her even cuter. I only remember her getting sick once or twice. She liked being outside a lot, and she'd bring home squirrels and birds. Once, she bit a coral snake right in the freaking heart; now it's in a frame right over the spot where she set it down by the door. She'd fight small dogs, raccoons, and other cats that came near the house, but she was scared of the peacocks. She scratched up the carpet around my bedroom door and this one chair pretty badly, but mostly she used her scratching posts. She always responded to her name and would come here. Lily was a good cat.

    I have an "accidental" mix as well. Mom was a Siamese and daddy was a black short hair from the neighborhood (according to who we got him from). Hershey is currently a year old and is absolutely beautiful. I fell in love with him the first time I saw him. Vet told me it was highly unusual to have a male his coloring and he was all the rage at the office and everyone just had to see him. He's very inquisitive, smart and extremely lovable and definitely loves to cuddle.

    Hershey looks just like the picture posted for the info on this breed.

I found a litter of ocicats that had been abused and dumped. All but one had to be put down so I was able to keep her. They are wonderful cats, good temperament and extremely easy to train, I didn't even need to bother much at all. They are quite dominant over other cats and apparently they don't grow much at all, as my cat stayed the same size as when I first found it at 2 months old. The vet then confirmed it was an Ocicat and that was why.

    Dear Kathryn:
    Good work on your find, always a wonderful thing to be kind to these poor cats when they are abused by unknowing, uncaring people. I take in feral cats in Orange County, California, they seem to find me one by one. All scared of people but they sure know where the food is. Also a nice young opossum and four raccoons seem to know where the food is too. Why not, it's fun and not really that expensive! Blessings, Wendy

    My son has a small black cat that resembles the Havana
    Brown. Pheobe is now eight years old. She friendly with my son, and his
    partner, and she allows them to pick her up. I am wondering if she is an off
    spring of a Havana Brown that mated with another breed.
