What kind of cat did I have?

I used to have this beautiful cat. I had her for about 19 years. She had grey tabby fur that was longer than usual but not too long, and was very soft, thick and plushy. I haven't seen another cat like her in years. Now, all the cats I see either have that very short and very glossy fur or long silky fur.... show more I used to have this beautiful cat.

My cat looked very similar to the two cats in this picture.
Update: The cat on the right is almost a twin of my cat.
