Does this look like a Persian to you?

I have a friend that runs an animal adoption/shelter service. They have this cat listed as a Persian, but I'm afraid that it is misidentified and may turn off some potential adopters. What do think she is?

Umm, no. Definitely not Persian. But maybe a ragdoll or tonkenese mix.

I though ragdoll to. One easy way to tell, pick her up. Could be some Birman in there. Yea, not persian. Not even close. If there is no real way to tell her heritage, I would go with domestic long hair. And a very pretty one!

Absolutely not a Persian. Persians have flat faces (do a google image search). It is however a gorgeous long haired cat.

Persians can have flat faces, known as pug faces or they can have a more traditional cat face known as doll face. Our silver Persian was a doll face - really, he was a doll face.

My cat has a doll face, but it is still not nearly as prominent as the cat in the first photo you posted. I hope that makes sense. I am sorry but I definitely would not identify that cat as a Persian. The false breed description would not stop me adopting it though... And hopefully this is true for most people prone to adopting.
