Here Kitty Kitty! I HAVE A CAT!

So, I kind of suck at video blogs as i’m quite an awkward person, so here you get to see it first hand!

So, I am now proud owner to a one year old Tonkinese male named Tonka. I adopted him for a lovely family who were moving and could no longer have him. He is settling in pretty well so far, still shy and hiding, but coming out and being rather affectionate when it suits him.

Getting a cat is something i’ve been considering for awhile, at first I couldn’t because I hadn’t let go of Henry, but with the new house, I thought it might be a good start. However, I’ve been looking into breeds, and Tonkinese is one that I keep going back to, I was just trying to decide should I go for a kitten or an ex-breeding cat. A tonk isn’t something you see come up on rescue sites often. Then I noticed his ad on Gumtree and my Mum encouraged me to get him, and next thing I know, a few days later i’m off to meet him.

I have to say, it was love at first sight, he’s very handsome. I think Caleb is a little in love with him too! He can be quite chatty too.

Mr Frodo seems fine so far, they’ve just kind of been ignoring each other or just kind of watching each other in curiosity!

    He’s so gorgeous! Congrats on him taking you in!

  • I love him, he’s beautiful. I’ve never heard of this breed. Obviously part Siamese though except he looks really big.

  • Yep! Tonkinese are a mix of Siamese and Burmese, they became a registered breed in 2001 (I believe.) He’s about the same height as frodo but longer, and he’s pretty heavy as he’s pretty muscly. I’ve been looking into a few different breeds over the last 6 months, and the tonkinese is the one I kept going back to.

  • Hahah, thank you! 😀

    Congratulations on Tonka! He looks gorgeous. I just adopted a little kitten myself, I’ve named him Olli. I’ve allready fallen head over heels in love with him. <3
    Cats are such amazing creatures. ^_^

  • Ahah, yeah, he’s an amusing little guy!

  • I’m so happy to have him, though it’s lots of feelings, excited, scared. But he seems to be settling in really good, better every passing day!

  • He is very handsome indeed, he’s got a great personality from what he’s shown so far!

  • He’s only my 2nd baby. My ex kept my first cat, which broke my heart, it’s been over a year now and I felt I had moved on enough to adopt a new baby, and while it was a little sooner then I expected, I think it was meant to be!

  • Ahh Burmese… gorgeous. He looks muscly. I am very happy you have a new kitty to love.

  • Awww, what a cute kitty! Cats are wonderful. 🙂

  • He is gorgeous! Not sure about the chatty thing though… It would be a bit of a culture shock for me as my cat can only make little squeak type noises XD

  • You are a natural vlogger 🙂

  • Aw, yay for kitties! 😀

  • They are, I don’t know I how I lived 25 years without one!

  • He’s not a loud meower or that, and he has more of a siamese talk, you can hear him a couple of times here – http://youtu.be/KNrDQHJhYxE He is nowhere near as loud as Henry could be, but Tonka will kinda talk to you as if to say “pat me please” or “i’m hungry”.

  • Ha! Thank you! I feel pretty awkward in real life, so I think it comes across in the video, but I don’t think it was too bad. I AM NOW A KITTY MUMMA!

  • LOVE the Vlog. Please do one a week 🙂 WELCOME Tonka

  • it was great to see a video of you! You’re a natural!!! Tonka is so cute! 🙂

  • Ahaah, I don’t know if I’d have anything interesting to talk about once a week! It’s sooo good to have a kitty again!

  • Ahaha, thank you, I feel awkward and weird, but everyone seems to think I’m okay, so i’ll take it!

  • Aww, I loved the video, so cool to hear you talk! 🙂
    I’m so glad you were able to adopt Tonks, he’s adorable!
