Tricia with her purebred, ruddy-color Somali cat, "SLYLVIA"

Tricia T. Hunter, is a “Cat Lady” in that she understands them and their behaviors (even her zodiac sign is LEO!). She grew up with pet cats and has almost always had a special cat in her adult life…usually one at a time, since each one considered itself to be the center of the Universe!

Tricia is primarily responsible for the care and well-being of the Hideout Cattery’s cat guests, so it might be of interest to cat parents as to her experience and training with pets. Of course, since the Cattery has also been called a “cat house,” she could be referred to as the Cat House Madam!
