My next-door neighbors had two Tonk boys that I cat-sit frequently when I was a kid.
They were apparently super-affectionate one-person cats (well, two-person cats). My neighbors would often regale me with tales of how the two Tonks would follow them around, nibble on their earlobes, sit on the toilet tank when they were using the bathroom, etc...
They were pretty standoffish with me, but I was a kid. They were champion pukers (but so are a lot of cats...)
One day when I was cat-sitting them (and cleaning up a patch of puke) the larger one jumped off their cat tree in my general direction. He may have been being aggressive, or just aiming for my shoulder XD Either way, he scratched open my neck and eyebrow/forehead, and my mom refused to let me cat-sit again after that.
I remember thinking they had the most idiotic names - Buffet and Beaujolais Bear.
Of course, my own cats at the time were named Kazarothian and Wintressia... ;p
They were full-indoors cats and got along with my girl Win, who was outdoors but was occasionally allowed into their house :}
