The scarcity of Tonkinese studs from independent lines and the need for new lines has led me to keep a number of new stud boys. At present in addition to Rameses Whiskymac, who is not at open stud, there are five (!) stud boys. Apart from Louis (who has his own page) the boys are all young and live mostly as part of the household with stud quarters available when needed. The reason for the large number is to give me some overlap for retiring boys so that when they are neutered the new boys are immediately ready.
Louis came to me from Suzanne Mooney in Kent who was no longer able to keep him when she had to move house. He was bred by June Clarey for the new bloodlines group in 2012 (see his page: At stud). I am also pleased to announce the arrival of ‘Claw’ (lilac BCR, F5) and ‘Pinky’ (lilac-based caramel tabby BCR, F5), brothers bred by Hazel Hunter (Tallica) from German imported lines. For a short time I have ‘Moriarty’ (brown TCR, F2), Louis’s son who will be moving to Jean Adams in Kent at Christmas, and my own-bred ‘Badger’ (brown tabby BCR, F2) will be available for stud when he is old enough.
For 5-generation pedigrees, availability and terms please contact me directly. I reserve the right to refuse to take a queen if the dam is too closely related, if I consider the queen is too young or small, or if I feel there is any other reason that should preclude a mating. All matings are for kittens on the INACTIVE register unless by prior agreement. Please make sure you have asked me BEFORE bringing your cat to stud if you wish to have kittens on the active register.
The boys are all tested for HK, coat pattern and colour.
Claw will retire in 2017 probably; he is a full brother to Pinky. Moriarty will be moving to Kent early in 2017. Louis will be retiring around New Year 2016/17.
PLEASE read the notes on coming to stud before calling!
