Wily Kat

Wily Kat (from the ThunderCats) is a sweet, lovable, outgoing cat! She was a great mom to her four babies and a great hunter as well. She raised her babies for 5 weeks on nothing but what she caught! While she was great at it, she is ready to retire permanently from the job of Mom and take some much deserved spoiling herself. Her foster mom said she would be great for a family with a young girl who would carry her around and love on her all day. She wants attention more than anything else.
