Hi Maggie. The Siamese and Tonkinese can look similar but the Siamese has many variations and the Tonkinse only has 12 (4 colors times 3 patterns equals 12). I would say you are a very lovely Siamese mix.

Actually, in looking at your photos I'd say you look very much like the Snowshoe breed. The Snowshoe breed is a cross between American Shorthair and Siamese that can look very much like a Siamese, but has trademark white paws. Look at some of the photos of Snowshoes under Cat Breeds on this site to see if this fits.
