The star excitedly introduced Geoff to her fans and shared another snap of her cradling the adorable little pooch.
Cath's pal, and Corrie actress, Sair Khan commented on the post with: "Welcome Geoff!!!!! 🐶 🧡."
Hollyoaks' Sarah Jayne Dunn was already smitten and left this series of heart-eyed emojis: "😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍."
Cath will certainly have her hands full with Alfie and Geoff. She recently admitted she was exhausted from having to look after one child.
She admitted on Instagram: "Seriously... how do people have plural children AND work?!
"Am I missing something here? I'm whacked and I only got the one!"
Good luck, Cath!
