Lady Christine Campbell

Indie

Chocolate Tabby

Born on June 18th 2006.

4 months old and a little imp!

Lady Christine Campbell

Our beautiful Indie made her debut, at the Tonkinese Breed Club, with a bang. Not content with receiving a Best in Breed, she went on to be best in show kitten at just 4 months of age. She was such a wonderful little girl, so relaxed at this her first show, totally different from the little demon she is at home. However she is now nearly six years old and since she was neutered she has become a very loving little minx!

Lady Christine Campbell

Seven months old and still doing well on the show bench, she won best foreign exhibit at the Southern Counties

Robert Fox

Aged 8 months

We are very proud of 'Indie' at the tender age of 10 months 1 week, she was made up to Champion in three straight shows.

She had her first litter of kittens in July 2007, aged thirteen months we do not generally mate our cats for the first time until they are about eighteen months old, but so far all of the cats we have breed from this line have had a pyometra before having a litter of kittens or at the worse an emergency hysterectomy to save their lives. Her second litter were born July 2008.

Indie has produced some stunning kittens, Tonkaholics Amun Ra, Tonkaholics Cassiopeia, Tonkaholics Handsome Devil, Champion Tonkaholics Mimi Laminx, Tonkaholics Milomagnifiko, Tonkaholics Osiris, Premier Tonkaholics Shant Telle and Tonkaholics Sidrophel

(Tabby Neuter 1st) Lovely to see a chocolate Tabby, one of my favourite colours, Nice ears of good shape and set which looked pointy thanks to some tiny typical tabby tufts on the tips; rounded head, well balanced between width and length; Green eyes of good set, a little straight on the upper lid; good depth of chin and slight dip in profile; good bite; Nicely defined chocolate tabby pattern on a short, tight, soft coat; long thin tail; good body weight and correct build, with nice legs and small oval paws; a bit grumpy by the time I got to her, and didn't want to stand up to show off her leg stripes, but a good example of the pattern and breed, and very well presented.

(Tonkinese Neuter 1st & PC) A very nice girl, very close for BOB. Slight rounding to top of head with large ears of good shape and set, good thumbprints to backs. Large greeny blue eyes of good shape and set and expression. Whisker pinch to muzzle, slight nose break to profile with level chin. A weighty girl, well boned body, slim legs and oval paws. Beautifully ticked short coat of very good texture, showing tabby markings, with a very good shine. Tail  is well marked, would ideally like a little thicker and longer. A little spirited, but handled and was able to judge her fully. In fine condition.

(AV Radius Neuter 1st) A very attractive chocolate Tabby Tonkinese beginning to look just a little matronly now. A good head overall with typical balance or inverted equilateral triangle. The ears carried the lines of the head well. The dip in profile was marginally into a slight break but the balance was good and the chin was of good depth. The eyes were typical were of good size and almost almond- shaped and set well apart. Green and blue colour was observed in the eyes. The body was medium long and firm and as mentioned earlier a little matronly now. The chest was slightly rounded. The legs were slender and well muscled, the feet were oval. The tail  was tapered nicely and was of medium length. She was typically tonkinese patterning with slight darkening to the points which merged well with the body colour. The coat itself was excellent for texture, length and it lay well. A wriggly girl who was happier inside her pen. Shown and presented well.

Lovely balanced tonkinese wedge with width to the hinge, expressive almond shaped aqua eyes. Good muzzle being broad and deep with well defined whisker pinch, slight profile break and firm chin. Toned athletic body in excellent condition with elegant muscular limbs and neat oval feet, good tail for shape and length. Silky close glossy coat with gentle tabby markings to the points and ticked tabby patterning to the body. A real poppet.

Breeders female neuter 1st. female. A lovely girl, with spirit! Large ears of good shape and set with good width between, gentle rounding to top of head. Large greeny blue colour eyes of good shape and expression. Profile shows a slight nose break with level chin of medium depth, whisker pinch to muzzle of good length, balanced wedge. Lovely weight and feel to slim, muscular but elegant body, slim legs and oval paws. Short, fine coat of very good texture and lies well, showing excellent well defined ticking, tabby markings on legs and tail. Tail of good shape and length. Loved her. I believe I judged this girl as a kitten on looking at her name, she has grown into a beautiful cat, although she did have a lot to say to us

Brown or chocolate neuter, including torties and tabby's 2nd. Another super cat shown in lovely condition. A medium size, muscular body that complemented the gentle contours of her head. A close lying chocolate ticked tabby coat with spotty undertones. The tones of the coat were darker on the points and the coat was close lying and sleek but there was evidence of a recent spay operation. Large expressive almond shaped eyes, displaying bluey green eye colour. Good width between the ears which were medium size, slightly taller than wide. Good profile showing a slight nose break leading to a level bite and firm, deep chin. Lovely elegant legs with neat rounded paws and a tapering tail of medium length. She showed herself brilliantly in the pen but was a little madam out of it.

Top of head just wide enough, showing minimal curving between large ears, oval tipped and facing forward. Widely placed, Large eyes, almond in shape, a green/blue showing yellow outer rim at present.

1st & BOB. A lovely girl of super type overall and a worthy winner of the BOB today. She possessed a rather good top of head with good gentle rounding appropriate of a kitten. There was good space between the well set ears which had good width at the base and which set of the top of the head so well. The eyes were very appealing by being of good size and shape with typical setting giving and showing a slant to the upper lid. They were set in a green colour with a bluish rim at the outer edge. There was a typical medium nose break leading to a nose leather which dropped to a chin of pleasing depth. The body was typical feminine of a Tonkinese kitten of this age but also had very good muscle tone. The coat was of excellent texture being short and fine especially noteworthy for a kitten of this age. There was tabby markings on the head in deep chocolate and stripes on the legs and some faint spotting on the flanks. The undercoat of warm beige agouti ground had darker toning tabby markings on the points. The nose leather, eye rims and paw pads were of pinkish chocolate. This was a very stylish girl and one to watch. Well done to the breeders and exhibitors.
