Meet Cat Cat;
One summer, a lonely feral kitten took refuge under a family's front porch. The youngest member of the family, who at the time was 1.5 years old, would joyously yell "cat cat!" and point out the window whenever the kitten was spotted. And so, the kitten was named Cat Cat. After months of sitting outside and getting bitten by mosquitos to familiarize the feral kitten with humans, the family finally coaxed the kitten indoors. It was then that Cat Cat officially became a member of the family.
Cat Cat joined the AW Designs team by default, begrudgingly sharing her nap space with the owner, Amy. As quality control and chief team mascot, Cat Cat can typically be found napping on the job, sitting in the window growling at delivery drivers and neighbors, or sitting directly on Amy's keyboard. She prides herself on her defiant independence and being completely self-taught with no formal training.
