Cattail's Amphibious trait allows her to be played on the aquatic lane, whether to land 3 damage per attack against opponents with no aquatic defenses, or simply deal with an Amphibious zombie. Since Cattail is on the frail side, try to boost her to keep her alive for long. While all Smarty heroes can give her a small boost with Navy Bean, Green Shadow can do the job better due to her having good boosting cards like Fertilize and Embiggen.
However, Cattail can easily be replaced with either Lima-Pleurodon or Pear Pal: Lima-Pleurodon has a pretty good (and possibly game-changing) ability and tribe synergy, while Pear Pal has the added Team-Up trait, not to mention that they both cost less. Cattail may have 1 more strength, but that doesn't make much of a difference.
Cattail hits hard for her cost and has the Amphibious trait, so she can whittle your health quite a bit if you are not prepared. Also, she cannot be destroyed by Rolling Stone, Weed Spray, or Rocket Science if her strength is unchanged.
Fortunately, Cattail doesn't have much health, so she can be easily taken care of by almost any Amphibious zombie (except Swabbie and Ducky Tube Zombie) or a damaging trick (or moving her out of the water and then using a non-Amphibious zombie for Rustbolt). In fact, every hero has at least one way to deal with her.
