Here are four quite interesting cat photos from Facebook. Actually they are from the pictures-of-cats.org closed group page. I comment on the pictures briefly.
The cat above is a Maine Coon. He has to be even although he is not ‘labelled’ as such. The lynx tips on the ears are a give away as is the square muzzle. What is a bit extreme about this cream colored cat is the ears. They are very large for a Maine Coon and the lynx tips (the hair jutting out at the top of the ears) are the longest I have seen. It makes his appearance a bit odd to be honest but interesting nonetheless. Maine Coons have to have plenty of ear hair – tufts and tips! – and square muzzles under the breed standard.
This is a very cute photo of what must be blue (grey coated) British Shorthairs and their kittens. The picture has charm but is has to be a montage. There are two pictures here: one of the ‘parents’ and one of the kittens sandwiched together.
This guy has Oriental Shorthair written all over his big face. Other than the elongated face and extra large ears, the eyes are typical of the Siamese family of cats: the squint. Look at them long enough and you start going cross-eyed yourself. Siamese cats can see fine even with the squint. Their brain wiring compensates for the problem nicely.
The calico lady cat above has a strange face. Well, it is actually a perfectly normal face except the fur patterns makes it look odd; startled and clown-like. I love it. I bet visitors to the home of this cat always comment on her appearance. It is special.
