Looks like a black classic tabby domestic shorthair with a lot of ticking (the texture in the pattern) in the coat :)

Tabby is a coat pattern not a breed, he’s a domestic shorthair classic tabby. I assume your vet checked for a microchip to ensure he’s not lost?

He may be lost so check for a chip etc. maybe your dvm already has, list him at shelters, online sites for lost/ found / pets etc. he looks like a dsh classic brown tabby to me, beautiful kitty, thanks for saving him😻

I can see where you might think Charlie has some Bengal traits, but Bengals are quite rare when compared to the overall number of cats. Bengals are also quite expensive. Besides, you don't get papers with a foundling and without papers, he could only be considered a domestic shorthair cat.

His coloring is black (also called brown) tabby, classic pattern.
