Here's a couple of Ruddy Aby photos. There's more at Mango's website although they aren't beauty shots... more like "life with an Aby or two".

It's Mango Madness!

You're welcome. If I find anymore, I'll be sure to add them here, too.

And if you need help finding information, just say so and I'll do my best to help search with you.

hello!
tabby is definitely a color, and not a breed. what tabby means is this: if you look at your cat, you should see one of two things. either a striped pattern like a zebra (this is a mackeral tabby coloring) or stripes that form a bullseye on the sides of the cat (this is called classic tabby). if neither of these terms fit, you may indeed have a spotted tabby. this is an entirely different thing, and rather than confuse you with my explanation of this pattern, spotted tabbies are classified by CFA as as follows:

SPOTTED TABBY PATTERN: markings on the body to be dense, clearly defined and distinctly spotted. Spots may vary in size or shape. Body spots may subtly suggest a mackerel or classic pattern but may not be connected and preference given to spots in a random pattern. A dorsal stripe may run down the length of the body to the tip of the tail. Preference given to a dorsal stripe composed of spots with alternating horizontal "brush strokes." Tail may be barred with preference given to spots. There is an intricate tabby "M" on the forehead, with markings extending over the head between the ears and breaking into spots on the lower neck and shoulders. An unbroken line runs back from the outer corner of the eye. Swirls on cheeks. Spots are scattered along the front shoulders and hind quarters extending as far as possible down the legs with broken bracelets further down on the lower legs and broken necklaces at the throat, the more broken the better. Buttons on belly desirable.

hope this helps!

ps-if your cat is not papered, then you would have to research the different breeds and see which one your kitty comes the closest too. Obviously, you could not call your kitty by the purebred name, but you could call her a purebred mix such as persian mix or burmese mix. your vet could also label her for you and identify which breed she comes the closest to.
