TONKAHOLICS TWO THOUSAND AND EIGHT.
29:11:08: Our little Mimi was a great ambassador for the breed today, she purred her way in to the hearts of many visitors to the National.
25:10:08: What a wonderful day we had at the Tonkinese Breed Club, with our friends and cats. All the kittens, who were just old enough to attend this their first show behaved beautifully, paddling and purring for their new owners.
Unfortunately I was kept busy most of the day writing out the certificates and sorting out rosettes so I did not manage to get photos of all 15 of the Tonkaholics cats at the show, but managed to get a few of the kitten owners cats. This also prevented me from spending a lot of time with new kitten owners however they enjoyed their introductions to each other and showing.
Our beautifully Nefertiti became Best in Show Adult.
'Mummy Ish' gained yet another Imperial certificate and had a red card day. She was the neuter with best eye colour and was best veteran neuter a wonderful tribute for this old lady.
But the icing on the cake was our lovely 'Kipper' receiving her title back from last year. Best in show Neuter and also having a red card day. with Best Temperament neuter amongst her wins. However the best tribute for us was knowing that we have made some wonderful friends and also have some beautiful cats.

12:07:08: What a fantastic weekend, our beautiful Istar went to TICA and came back with yet another title. Her title is GCCF Imperial Grand Champion and Grand Premier TICA Double Champion (Alter) Tonkaholics Istar. I don't think my family and I were even aware of how special this cat is. We just love her regardless of her ever increasing titles.
04:07:08: After a very hard labour our beautiful chocolate tabby girl gave birth to 7 wonderful kittens.
14:06:08: Our beautiful Istar got her first Imperial Grand Premier Certificate, so very very proud of her. Meanwhile her beautiful daughter Isla Tanika is recovering well from her major surgery.
17:05:08: What a wonderful day Mummy Ish had at the Suffolk and Norfolk today. In big classes she gained her first Reserve Imperial Grand Premier Certificate, a Reserve Grand Premier Certificate. Best of Breed and a first in Breeders class. Ish was back to her old self, she really stood out from the crowd again, performing for her judges. Congratulations to a dear friend whose cat was made up to Champion.
14:05:08: Champion Tonkaholics Nefertiti has three beautiful kittens.

12:04:08: It was Istar's day today, even though both girls did very well at the Essex show. Not only is Ishtar the only Imperial Grand Champion Tonkinese but she has added Grand Premier to her title.
29:03:08: We had a fantastic day at the Cambridge today.
05:03:08: Surrey & Sussex. Our Free Spirit, 'Indie' has been retired from showing, she may be the most perfect type and well marked tabby Tonkinese cat, but for her the accolade of the show bench does not appeal. she prefers to be a home loving individual. and we have chosen to respect her feelings. We pulled her out of the show just as she was about to be judged in her open class. Meanwhile Istar received her second Grand Premier Certificate.
Congratulations to all of our friends who did so well at the show.
09:03:08 Champion Tonkaholics Nefertiti mated to Toshiki Xtraspecial, kittens due 13th May.

Grand Champion & Imperial Grand Premier Tonkaholics Isla Tanika received a Grand Premier Certificate and Imperial Grand Champion and Premier Tonkaholics Istar received her fourth Premier Certificate
26:01:08: Nikita and I had a lovely day out, which was made even better by the fact that we meet up with very good friends. We took four cats two, adults and two neuters. All of them doing well Champion Tonkaholics Nefertiti received a Reserve Grand Champion Certificate in a class of seven. Champion Tonkaholics Superstar received a Challenge Certificate and Best of Breed. Grand Champion & Imperial Grand Premier Tonkaholics Isla Tanika received a Grand Premier Certificate, but the day belonged to Istar who not only got a first in a very large breeders class plus other very good side class placements, but received another title today. She is now officially known as Imperial Grand Champion and Premier Tonkaholics Istar. Thank you to John Hansson, who wrote on the back of her certificate 'Superb for a cat of this age' . I would also like to congratulate my friends with the success of their kittens.
