Here is a beautiful Siberian purebred cat with what appears to be a silver smoked type coat. The cat has whiskers that turn up like Salvador Dali’s moustache but not quite as much! I don’t remember seeing whiskers that turn up when in a relaxed position before.
A cat’s whiskers do point forward when prey or a substitute for prey (a cat tease) is put before a cat as the whiskers are preparing to “feel” the prey. However, this is not the same as whiskers that turn up when in a relaxed position.
I think this Siberian cat looks a bit like the real Turkish Angora (in respect of the face) and the original traditional Persian by which I mean the Persian of 100 years ago. As I have said earlier there is a certain amount of mashing up of the breeds which makes things difficult.
Tootsie, a well known polydactyl Maine Coon has a similar coat and actually looks similar from certain angles. Her whiskers don’t turn up though.
