After Cat's parents left for a while to tend to her brother in Idaho, Cat, at the suggestion of her friend Jade, decided to settle with her Nona because she refused to stay with her mean aunt and uncle.
Cat is an extremely sweet and caring girl with a fear of clouds. She is happy-go-lucky, very bubbly, and lost in her own mind at times. She often unknowingly gets herself into sticky situations. There are still some traits that Cat has from Victorious, for example, her love for her purple giraffe, her craving for bibble, and her sweet, bubbly but dim-witted personality.
