What is a slonk cat?
A slonk cat is a long and slender cat and is essentially the opposite of the more widely used chonk, or overweight cat. As with most of these popular terms, it is hard to pinpoint the origins but the term is presumably a combination of slim or slender + long.
The most well-known slonk cats are the Siamese, Oriental, Foreign White, Havana, and Peterbald. These breeds have a slender body, and long legs and tail, which gives them a slinky appearance.
What is the difference between a slonk and a chonk?
A slonk is a long, thin cat and a chonk is a chunky cat. Some breeds of cats such as the British Shorthair are naturally ‘chonky‘, while other cats are chonky due to weight issues.
