oh my gosh, they are so beautiful! Do their bodies stay lighter than Siamese?
You'll probably be sorry you asked after this explaination, but here goes:
The Tonkinese are available in four different colors:
Platinum, Champagne, Blue and Natural.
Each color comes in three different patterns:
Point, Mink, and Solid.
These patterns refer to the amount of contrast between the points (face, tail, etc...) and their body.
Points have the highest contrast, Minks have a medium contrast and Solids blend the most, so they have a low contrast.
So to answer your question, the bodies of the Points stay the same as a Siamese. The other two types get darker.
We won't get into the eye color at this time.
Anyone still awake? Sorry, you should hear me giving my little seminars at shows. Another exibitor at the Tulsa show was laughing because I had actually drawn a crowd.
