I have no idea what her parents look like, but would still like to have somewhat of an idea of what breed she looks like.

    She is a domestic shorthair as the breed. That means a cat of indeterminate breed with short hair. When she gets older someone may be able to guess at a breed she is a lookalike to, but without pedigree papers a cat is always a domestic.

    Coloration is tortishell tabby or torbie. Although the oranges are not my strong point so she could be a calico tabby. Either dad was an orange tabby or Mom was orange tabby, tortishell or calico. The other parent was likely a brown tabby.

    Coloring is not my strong suit, but my girl Olive is a tortoiseshell coloring (or "tortie" for short). This means she has black and orange mixed throughout. These are typically only girl cats. Usually when the colors are more pastel, they call that "dilute". A "torbie" is a tortie cat with the tabby markings (the striped pattern).

    I’d call her a dilute torbie Domestic Shorthair. She is an adorable little kitten!

    Add also "with white" to the description to make it complete.
