Welcome to Chorus Tonkinese Cats
Sylvia’s Kittens – Born 1st May
Sylvia, our chocolate tabby BCR girl, safely and confidently delivered her first litter of four kittens on 1st May. There is a brown burmese-pattern tabby boy, and three girls – a chocolate tabby BCR, a lilac TCR and a chocolate BCR. BCR & TCR refer to two of the three possible Tonkinese coat patterns – for more information about this take a look at this excellent presentation. Please sign up for our Kitten News via the link at the top of this page if you are interested in following the progress of this litter. All the kittens are now reserved for their new homes, but we are hoping to have another litter soon.
Please take a look at our Kitten News pages where you’ll find more pictures and progress updates.
Sylvia has been a star throughout and is incredibly happy to be with her kittens as you’ll see from the pictures below!

About Chorus Tonkinese Cats
Mike & Lizzi Smith are relatively new breeders of Tonkinese Cats. Tonks have a wonderful personality and a gentle demeanour – they are playful, intelligent, affectionate and engaging animals that thrive on the company of humans and other cats. Please see our About Tonkinese page for more information.
For us, breeding was always something other people did. Although we have always been fascinated to see kittens grow up, we hadn’t contemplated taking on such a significant responsibility until some thoughtful advice and encouragement from an experienced breeder set us to consider it in detail. It took quite a while and a lot of soul-searching to decide that with the support of an excellent mentor and our trusted vets, we could commit to the considerable time, learning, and investment necessary to breed.
We are committed to breeding healthy and well-adjusted kittens in support of the Tonkinese breed & in accordance with the GCCF Breeding Policy & Code of Ethics. Since 2017 we have supported the Tonkinese Breed Club as members of the club committee. Find out more about us here.
