1. How sweet!

He looks like a Burmese?

2. He looks more Tonkinese than Burmese to me. I used to have a Tonkinese.

7. He's Burmese Blue ... if you look at the pics in my the other thread from yesterday

You can see he's pretty stocky, more typical of Burmese. He also has golden eyes (with a lot of green in some lighting), not blue like Tonkinese.

But Tonks are a Siamese/Burmese hybrid (and Burmese are closely related to Siamese to begin with) so not that much separates the three really. I love all 3 breeds

34. I swear it's like I now have a little cartoon character living with me

He's constantly being adorable, and already loves me like he's known me his whole life and all he wants to do is be near me. Dog-like is a pretty apt description.

He's awesome, but a bit much at times. Very spoiled cat before I even got him

Still trying to establish some ground rules like 'no, you can't sleep on my chest every waking hour of every day!'

37. They are something. Very much a cartoon cat.

We call ours “alien cat”. I’d post a pic but I don’t know how!😂 Unfortunately, ground rules with a Burmese are pretty much a joke. They are in charge of everything. And, they do not want to be left alone. It’s funny, we got our dog because that breed is more “cat-like” and we now have a cat that’s more “dog-like”! So, I have both following me around all day.❤️

18. I've been lusting to get a Tonkinese for 10 years...

When I am able to get a cat, that's the kind I hope for. Are they as 'dog-like' friendly as purported?

One of his favorite spots is on top of the 15" subwoofer, and he doesn't mind if it's fairly loud in here (which is the normal state of play in my office)

off him. . .oh, wait, that is him just snoozing between your legs. You might want to think long pants, just in case!

36. Ah, I had forgotten about Phoenix. "Long pants" are articles of clothing worn in colder climes.

Some of them are even made from. . .wool.

As for your work, I am assured by my little one that you will be amply rewarded.

10. That's One Relaxed Kitty!

Over the years we had a few cats that would do that.
Most curled up on my lap, but I can think of 2, maybe 3, that would do that.
It's fun!

14. We got our cat 8 years ago from a shelter. When we went to see him, he hid behind a metal...

....rack, peeking out to look at us.

We went back the next day, same thing. They had to roll the rack into the middle of the room, he reluctantly came to the middle of the room.

When we got him home he ran behind a television stand and hid back there for a week! He only came out at night when we were sleeping to get something to eat and use his box.

We spent a lot of time in that room watching television "with" him. Finally after a week he came out and crawled onto my lap!

Kittens are amazing.

I've only had 3 cats of my own i.e. this is my 3rd and I didn't get any as kittens. First two were 3-6 months. But this guy is already 8 yo. And spoiled ROTTEN!

21. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I didn't name him, my Aunt did. And after my uncle passed, she became a very frequent traveler to France ... so IRL he's probably named after some handsome, strapping Frenchman, but ... not anymore!

Reminds me a little of this:

30. Bit of a trick of the light ... carpet is quite brown, and he's very grey

However, you're right, he's still hard to see cause they're both solid, dark colors.

He's not too bad about being underfoot though except when I'm dishing out his food from the can.

You know how they are
