Kate came to Abbey Cats as a pregnant mom in July.
She is a golden retriever trapped in a cat's body.
She is so loving and affectionate to humans and her kittens.
She loves cuddling and will start purring as soon as she sees you.

Kate is playful and loves being brushed, she also loves reciprocating by grooming her foster family as you can see in her photos.
We all fell in love with her immediately after she arrived here and the bond has only grown stronger.

She is a bit of a jokester, for example she loves trying on her foster mom's shoes.
She is partial to Adidas slides, but has been known to rock some high heels when the mood strikes her.

Kate is very social and desperately wants to be with people and other animals whenever she possibly can.
She seems really bonded to one of her kittens in particular, Anne, maybe because they look so similar.

Fair warning about Kate, it seems likely that prior to coming into our care, she was used to scavenging for food/eating from her people's plates.
She pays very close attention when her foster family is eating around her and has been caught licking crumbs off their plates if they are left out.
On the bright side, her orientation towards food will probably make her very trainable if her forever family is interested in teaching her tricks.

Kate is a clean cat, uses the litter box 100% of the time, and will cover her deposits unless she feels like the litter is getting too full, that is how she communicates her request to clean the litter.
Kate is very chatty, vocalizing her greetings, when she is concerned about something, when she wants cuddles, and when she is hungry.
She is an absolute angel sent to us directly from heaven (via a shelter north of Toronto), and we will miss her deeply when she moves on to her forever home.

Kate would prefer a home with another cat, but might be ok as the only cat, provided people are around most of the time.
She is very social and she may get depressed if she doesn't have an opportunity to engage consistently.
She loves the family dogs and kids, and would be fine in a busy home.

She seems really bonded to her daughter Anne, but could probably bond with any cat or kitten
