Facts about Caterina

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 25569
  • Hair: Short
This gorgeous young lady is Caterina, a 6 year old gorgeous gray girl that is hoping for the best home ever with a family that adores her. Caterina had a home but when her owner could no longer afford to care for her, she left Caterina in our parking lot in a carrier one hot day without food or water, but with a note saying her name was "Cat" and that she could not keep her any longer. We are grateful that she was left with us and lucky that customer noticed her quickly. We prettied-up her name a little and gave this beautiful girl a good meal and cozy bed, and she's been loving life ever since. Now she needs a fabulous family of her own to love and care for her. She was quite shy and afraid when she arrived, but with lots of coaxing from her caretaker, Caterina has come out of her shell and now enjoys playing with toys, sitting in the window and watching the birds go by, and especially getting lots of love and attention from the new friends that she's made. She doesn't seem to mind other cats in her area and it really doesn't take much to make Caterina happy. This pretty girl is hoping for a fresh start in life with a loving family that will give her the great life that she deserves. File#25569 9/27/15
