I would like to welcome you to Penelane Cattery …
Our small cattery in the Tampa Florida area was officially registered in
but my love affair with the Colorpoint Shorthairs and Siamese cats formally
began in the early summer of 2007 when I attended my
first CFA cat show.
I was observing the cats in the show ring and throughout the aisles at a CFA
show in Florida. I walked up to a cage where a kitten was housed and just
stopped as something drew me to the little face staring up at me. It was a
feeling of silent connection, one of those moments in time where a bond occurred. The kitten did not move for the longest moment as we stared at each other
and then all of a sudden she welcomed me with festive chirps and animated
legs and paws … just love. That was my introduction to Penny, my first Colorpoint Shorthair.

I showed GC Melkatz Copper Penny of Penelane to her Grand Champion status that 2007 – 2008 show season. It was a wonderful experience and I learned a lot. I am thankful to many, but especially to Penny with her fantastic disposition and my two patient mentors: Melanie Dellasala and Heather Hermany.
The name Penelane Cattery is in honor of Penny as she is the first
and the matriarch of our clan.
