Orange (red) coon cats have 6 different types of fur patterns. The link above explains the classifications of their fur patterns in great detail. It’s complicated, but, here are some pictures with descriptions of the fur pattern and classification:

To get an idea of what a cameo smoke and white coon cat looks like, just look at the cameo smoke cat above and just add white to it. LOL. Finding these photos was a lot of work, and I may have labeled some of them incorrectly. I’m learning as I go along, and until now, I didn’t realize the level of detail involved in determining fur patterns and classifications.
