I will discuss my  work with Niels Moller on extending Kapouleas type desingularizations of catenoids in $\mathbb{R}^3$  to desingularizations with  fixed topology and arbitrarily small intersection angles. A motivation is a conjecture of Ros that moduli spaces of complete embedded minimal surfaces with finite topology are usually non-compact. An interesting refinement  of our method is precise estimates for the change on the logarithmic growth of the ends of the catenoids to be desingularized.
