What would you call this coat pattern? Does it come from any particular breed? I was thinking dilute tortoiseshell or something but I just don't know. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Ooooooh! I'd call her a "Ticked Torbie!"
She's definitely a tortoiseshell. She also carries agouti so she expresses her tabby pattern, hence Tortie + Tabby = "Torbie". What is unusual is her tabby pattern appears to be ticked, like the Abyssinian and not the usual striped, broken striped, spotted or classic tabby markings.

Ticked torbie it is. Interesting and quite unusual, you don't see this very often in DSH (domestic shorthair).
