Cate is a tortoiseshell domestic short hair. We estimate she was probably born in Spring 2007.
We don't know where Cate started her life, but it appears she spent months wandering in a dangerous city neighborhood. When she was rescued, she was found as a stray near Catherine Street with five newborn kittens. Cate came to Kitty Corner when her kittens were two days old, but life on the streets had taken it's toll on her though. Shortly after she arrived, Cate became sick with a respiratory virus, and soon after her kittens also became ill.
Cate is recovered and is now in good health. Two kittens also survived, Sunkist and Hyacinth, and they have been adopted, but Cate is still waiting to find her forever home.
Cate is good with people, and is friendly and affectionate right from the start. She enjoys being held and cuddled. Cate likes meeting new people, and likes being petted. It's hard to believe after all she's been through that she could still be so trusting, but she is - she loves people.
Cate gets along OK with other cats. She enjoys but does not require their company. She could do well as an only cat, or as a companion cat to another feline sibling in the family.
Cate has had a rough start in life for both herself and her kittens. Now that her 'mom time' is over, she is ready to find a family to call her own and share her life with her forever family.
Cate would be a wonderful companion for a single person, or a purrfect family pet. Please show this trusting girl that her hopes were not in vain! If you can give Cate the kind of home she deserves, please call us and come meet this beautiful girl.
