I have to agree with the others...looks like a very cute domestic shorthair to me. This is the most common type of cat found in the US, making up about 95%. Its not officially considered a breed by the cat associations. DSHs are mixed breeds that have no clear parentage.

There are a number of books on the market that describe cat breeds in detail. (check the review section for a couple suggestions) I have a few and have looked through them to get an idea of what some of my Girls have in them. It helps if you get photos of their feet, ears, tail and posture for comparison. The way they climb, behave and communicate will also give you a few clues.

A "domestic shorthair" sounds right to me!

usually you can't determine what breeds mixed to create a mixed cat. some randombreds will have really defining features that can give you a push in the right direction, but even then, many times we can be easily mistaken.
