Category attributes as for example the name of a category? In such cases I would look in the app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Block/Navigation.php

You can changes which attributes shall be selected in the getCurrentChildCategories function (line 72-92) and how to display them in the drawItem function (142-197). This is of course if you would like to display them in the drop down menu at the top of the page. Otherwise, could you explain your problem a little better?

Hope it helps though smile
