cattery was started by Sheila Dentico in 1984. The plan was
to breed and show Abyssinians in the colors accepted for Championship
competition in TICA and CFA: Ruddy, Cinnamon/Sorrel/Red, Blue and Fawn.
In 1992, Sheila met Pat Price at a cat show and eventually
Pat became a partner in the cattery as well as becoming a
we met an English import Cinnamon (Sorrel) Silver Somali, Mycene Crystal
Blossom, and her litter, and were enchanted by the Silver color.
We each acquired one of the kittens from this litter.
Disappointingly, neither girl was successfully bred. However,
a breeding was done with mother Crystal and my blue stud
Aby and two Silver kittens were kept from this litter. And so
began our adventure into Silvers.
The cattery is
located in the New York City suburbs, in Sheila's home. Currently, Pat is on hiatus from breeding due to work
constraints and having moved.
breed only one or two litters at a time, in order to give the
kittens lots of attention and time in our laps. The colors depend
entirely on the parents and their genetics. We can have Ruddy,
Cinnamon (Sorrel/Red), Blue and Fawn, as well as Silver, Cinnamon (Sorrel/Red) Silver,
Blue Silver and Fawn Silver. Sometimes we have Somali kittens,
usually in the Silver colors.
