Catherine is a parrot.

Reasoning:

Carina isn't a parrot, since she talked first, and parrots never talk first.. She's either a liar or a semi-liar.

∆ Hypothesis one: Carina's a liar. According to this:

Carina: "Hey! I'm a semi-liar!" << this statement is wrong. (obvs. She's a liar.)
Catherine: "I'm a liar!"
Carina: "Don't listen, Catherine's a liar." << also wrong, since she lied. Since Catherine's not a liar, she's either a parrot or a semi-liar.
Catherine: "But Carina's a semi-liar."

Continuation hypothesis: Catherine's a semi-liar. One out of the two statements she said is true.

Carina: "Hey! I'm a semi-liar!"
Catherine: "I'm a liar!" << if Catherine's a semi-liar, this statement is the wrong one.
Carina: "Don't listen, Catherine's a liar."
Catherine: "But Carina's a semi-liar." << if Catherine was a semi-liar, this statement should be true. It can't be true, though, since in this hypothesis, Carina is a liar.

So, since Catherine isn't a semi-liar, she's a parrot.

∆ Hypothesis two: Carina's a semi-liar. According to this:

Carina: "Hey! I'm a semi-liar!" << this statement is the true one.
Catherine: "I'm a liar!"
Carina: "Don't listen, Catherine's a liar." << this statement is the wrong one. Since she lied, Catherine is not a liar, so she's either a semi-liar or a parrot.

Aaaaand we're back to the continuation hypothesis.
