Are these Siamese or Tonkinese?

Anyone know for certain which breed these cats are.

Well, I'm gonna guess Tonkinese because they don't have the sharply wedge-shaped face you usually see on a Siamese. Doesn't matter though, because they're both gorgeous!

I'm only asking because I purchased my cats under the assumption they were Tonkinese and recently someone told me they were Siamese.

Did you buy them from a tonkinese breeder? If so, then I assume you have papers to prove they are tonks? As for the person that said they were Siamese, who was it? Reason I ask is not everyone knows various breeds of cats, except for the "main" ones like Siamese, Maine Coon, and Persians, etc. So, the person might have just seen yuor tonks and called them the closest breed they know of to them, which is Siamese....doesn't mean they are right..

I'll move this to Breeding for you. Maybe one of the regulars there can help out

I'd say Siamese because of the color. A seal mink Tonkinese would usually be darker in the color.

These cats are seal mink (the color your cats would be if they're Tonkinese):

Where are the cats from? Have you bought them from a friend, a shelter, a rescue group or where?
