Here’s a large collage of some long faced cats for aficionados of this sort of cat anatomy. The long faced cat is a development of the modern Siamese cat, and other cats that were subsequently created from that breed, such as the Oriental Shorthair and Balinese, a long haired Siamese.
A lot of people like what breeders refer to as the “refined appearance” of the long face. I am not a great fan myself. The cat in the middle – the main picture – appears to be a red spotted tabby Oriental Shorthair. He/she has a beautifully straight profile from the forehead to the end of the nose. This is desirable for the modern Siamese profile. The Oriental Shorthair is basically a modern Siamese without having to have a pointed coat and the coat varieties are extremely wide. Notice how long the neck is too. A handsome cat and a great picture by Helmi Flick.
The cat top right is a Havana Brown. She is a beautiful cat. The cat top left is lynx point modern Siamese as far as I can tell. You can see the tabby M mark on the forehead. Lynx pointing is pointing that is made up of a tabby pattern.
The grey cat appears to be a grey Oriental Shorthair. His face is too long and slender to be a Russian Blue.
The cat bottom right appears to be a flame/lynx pointed Siamese cat! Flame means red. I have used the word “appear” a lot because I am not sure. Cat coats can be complicated and one of the most complicated sectors of the many cat breeds is the Siamese – Oriental SH grouping. A lot of cat breeds were created from the modern (slender) Siamese cat at the time of expansion of the cat fancy in the mid-1900s. See a simple timeline of the creation of the breeds.
