My name is Catherine, also known as Cat. I was a trailing spouse and was excited about joining my husband with his career move to Dubai. After living here for 7 years we have grown from a family of 2 to a family of 5. Us two, 2 small black pugs, and our 4-year-old daughter. I really enjoy living in Dubai, there is always something new to see or do. Dubai is a great city to explore and I love finding a discount too! I also love the theatre and have been helping Dubai Drama Group with productions for the last 5 years.
