Katy was a 1 year old female orca who was captured in Washington on February 15, 1967. She was a member of the K Pod of the Southern Residents. She passed away in May 1967.

In the 1960s, marine parks were starting to become more interested in having orcas in their facilities. In February 1967, five killer whales were captured and taken to a seapen. Soon after they were moved to the Seattle Marine Aquarium until a permanent facility could be found. Katy stayed at the aquarium for three months before passing away.
