About Us

Grand Premier Minkitty Miller's LightMinkitty 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  member of the CFA Tonkinese Breed Council.  In addition I'm an active member of the Cleveland 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.

Delta as a kittenThe goal of Minkitty Cattery is to breed healthy cats that 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. 

Minkitty 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.  We do 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 to 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 registration papers.  

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.      

Since I show my cats regularly, you can be assured that they will look like what a Tonkinese should  look like.  

If we do not have any kittens available and you live in Ohio or a neighboring state, please feel free to e-mail me as I can provide you with referrals to other breeders who raise their kittens in a similar  manner and with similar values.
