Saffy’s Kittens – born August 2019
Saffy’s kittens have all chosen their new families. Our next litter is tentatively planned for late Spring 2020.
Saffy delivered a litter of seven kittens on Wednesday 28th August, following her mating to the very special Ramintha of Rameses – a true native Tonkinese imported from Thailand. The kittens are all browns: 4 Tonkinese pattern (TCR), 2 girls and 2 boys, and 3 Burmese pattern (BCR) girls.
If you’re interested in their progress, take a look at our “Chorus News” – you can also sign up to get Chorus News by email (see the top of this page). If you might like to have a Chorus kitten join your family please read our “Chorus Kittens” page which describes how we go about finding new homes.

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.
