Minkitty is a CFA
registered cattery name and is located in a western suburb of
Cleveland, Ohio. Tonkinese have been a part of our lives
since 1992. In 1993 I
started showing Tonkinese and started breeding a couple of years later.
I am an active member of the Tonkinese Breed Association, current club secretary and webmaster. I am also a
the CFA Tonkinese
Breed Council. In addition I'm an active member of the
Persian Society, Champagne Cat Club, Western Pennsylvania Cat Club
and Almost Heaven Cat Club. These are show
producing cat clubs and we put on at least four
shows per year.
goal of Minkitty Cattery is to breed healthy
have the wonderful Tonk personality and meet the standard. Health, Temporment and Type, in that order. Our cattery
is in our home and our kittens are raised under foot.
Cattery is not a business but a hobby which we love and
enjoy. We only have a couple of litters per year and occassionally have kittens that we offer to select families.
this so that we can give our complete attention to the current
litter making sure that each kitten is adequately spoiled.
Kittens are not placed until they are about four months old in order
insure that they have a fully developed immune system and are properly
socialized. They will receive a series of
four core vaccines, a rabies vaccination and each kitten is tested for
feline leukemia and FIV. The
kittens are spayed or neutered
prior to placement and come with a six generation Tonkinese to
Tonkinese pedigree and CFA
Our blood lines
are North American. The traditional color/pattern Tonkinese
was established in the US and Canada and the largest
gene pool for the traditional color/patterns exists right
here in North America. Because of the large gene pool these
cats tend to be rather healthy with no genetic problems.
Once the kitten is placed in your home,
we will work
with you to make sure the kitten makes the transition easily.
I go to great lengths to make sure the match
between the kitten and buyer is a good match, but if there is a
problem, I will, of course take the kitten back. Because of
this I like to meet the prospective families first, have them come to my home, meet my Tonks and pick out their kitten. Once they make a kitten selection, I take a deposit. When the kitten is ready we will make arrangements for the new owner to pick up the kitten. This is
one of the many reasons that I do not ship my kittens.
