Inquisitive and friendly, Katie loves to show off her shiny black coat and twinkling green eyes in pursuit of a treat from her friends! She is just one year old and hopes to grow up to be “as winning in the feline world as she is in the sports world.”

Katie plans to win over all sports lovers as she is named after Olympic gold medalist swimmer, Katie Ledecky. While Ledecky is considered one of the greatest Olympians of all time, friends of Katie consider her to be one of the sweetest cats of all time.
