Catarina is a medium hair female tortie with beautiful markings. She was pregnant and in a hoarding situation when H.E.L.P. took her in. She had 5 kittens that she took very good care of. Even though her kittens have been weaned, she still likes to give them baths (they are not too happy about this). She also will very gently play with them. She is cared for in a foster home and has full run of the house. She gets along with the other cats/kittens in this household. She is very sweet climbing on my lap to ask for some head scratching. She has been introduced to our dog, but she basically ignores him. She has been spayed, micro-chipped and is up to date on all of her vaccines. She is completely litter boxed trained.
