Despite having “orange” in their name, these ginger-like cats are officially recognized as red Maine Coons by most cat associations.
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:
Solid Red Maine Coon
Red Tabby Maine Coon
Red Tabby and White Coon
Red and White Maine Coon
Cameo Smoke Maine Coon
Cameo Smoke and White
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.
