Kelley Katz is a small closed, smoke-free CFA registered cattery located just south of Richmond and north of Petersburg, VA. My cats are my passion and four legged friends with wings. They are raised with love in a clean environment in my home as part of the family. I do expect the same in the homes in which they are placed.
I have always shared my life with cats as a child and a lover of all animals. My mom will test to the fact, I was always bringing home something. Her foot went down when she came home and found two baby ducks swimming in the tub. Upon relocating from Clearwater, Florida where I was a breeder of Exotic Birds to adopting a Blue Female Persian from the Dinwiddie Animal Shelter just before they were about to put her down in 1996. I took her home, cleaned her up, took her to the vet and nursed her back to health. She spent a good 6-8 months with me before she passed in her sleep, it was then I decided I wanted to be apart of this wonderful breed.
I started raising Persians in 2003 and have since branched out to include the Himalayan lines with the desire to show. My focus is raising healthy, happy, well socialized kittens with emphasis on meeting the CFA Standards. I am proud to say Kelley Katz is 100% Felv/Fiv & PKD DNA negative tested cattery. I am now venturing into the Chocolate & Lilac program to further my knowledge in the gene pool. The lines I'm currently working with are
A special thanks to Judy Harper of Jude Cattery for the awesome boy she has provided to enhance my Chocolate program, he has done everything she said he would for my program and Jeanne O'Donnell for her mentorship. Thank you both for sharing your knowledge & guidance. God Bless you!
