Anyone know what this might be?

Looks like some kind of member of the Quail family, but in 32 years Nancy or I have never seen anything like him/her, anyone know what he/she might be? Came in mussed up by a cat, he going to be OK, just had some feather damage, but we don't know what he/she is so we don't know what to put on his/her case record? Nothing we can find fits with his/her redish brown coloring and he/she doesn't have any kind of top knot like the quails?

Looks like a female Tennessee Red Quail. They are a color mutation of Bobwhites.

But it might be a tibetan colored Coturnix quail. The beak looks more bobwhite-ish than coturnix though, so I'm going with the Tennessee.
