She is very cute! She looks like a cream to me. I see the faint tabby markings and the M on the forehead. Are here stripes more peach or orange colored? If they are more orange then she could be a red tabby. My Bradley was almost the same color as your kitten when he was a baby but then his stripes became more orange as he got older.

my cat Hudson looked very similar as a kitten, IMHO she was actually pink, which gradually faded to a 'peach' color. Now she mostly resembles an orange tabby just not nearly as vivid.

...but the vet always just listed her as 'beige'

very sweet kitteh you have.

I have a pic that shows the differences in orange and cream colors.
Below you can see the difference of pigmentation between Marmalade (lighter orange) and BooBoo (darker orange) in comparison with Curly (cream).

Cream works for me. The cat we have (YellaCat) isn't yellow, he isn't orange, he's kinda creamy something!!!

In horses, it is called a 'cream gene' that dilutes hair coats. I am not sure if that is what they call it for cats, too. However, the same effect that makes orange cats cream, also turns black cats gray (blue).
In my pic, I also have a black and a blue.

I've seen that color referred to as "buff" a number of times at shelters.

One website defines it as this:
Quote:
Any cat whose color is sandy, tan, strawberry blonde, etc. Cats who hover between orange and white.

I call that a buff kitten! Ive only had two of them come thru as fosters. I think it more of a rare color. What a cutie
