|I have my Eyewitness Handbooks "Cats" by David Alderton in hand. Just us see, Midas has a tail, no curly ears and no blue eyes. Now with that in mind here are the ones I found: British Shorthair, American Shorthair, Oriental Shorthair, and European Shorthair. Both the British and European have rounder faces. There is a photo of a Red and White Van Tabby, breed American Shorthair. Very close. But the Oriental Shorthairs have some cats with blue eye blue eyes, but others like Midas. They have a more of a wedge face than the American Shorthairs. The Cream, Oriental Shorthair is a lot darker in the photo than Midas.
Here are the color choices of American Shorthair I found online from Gopetsamerica. May I say, WOW!!!!! I'd rule out: Silver, Solid, Parti-Tabby, Tabby(Mackeral,Classic,Patched),Tabby & White & Bi-color. I wish I could see a photo of the Smoke-Shell Cameo & White Tabby or the Shaded-Cream Shell Cameo. That is what I found for you.
