Arrival Story:
Penelope lives with my brother, but I consider myself her auntie. I volunteer at Petsmart and every weekend they have adoption events. I saw Penelope in a cage all by herself, and knew right away what breed she was. Unfortunately there were other people there saying that she "had something wrong with her ears" or "must have gotten frostbite." I couldn't leave her side, and she became my little buddy in a short period of time. My brother was visiting me that weekend, and I asked him to meet me at Petsmart to meet the kitties. I told him how sweet Penelope was (her name was Rainbow at the time) and that he just had to get her. I was *seriously* thinking of adopting her myself and suffering the consequences once I got her home, but I knew it wasn't very realistic. I *had* been mostly joking when I told him that he needed to get her, but a part of me held out. Right before we were about to leave, I turned around to see my brother filling out the paperwork on her! I got to spend time with her that weekend while my brother was staying with me, and she was a dear. I am so glad I put the pressure on. lol

I would actually call Penelope a silver spotted torbie with white, but that wasn't an option on here, so calico it is. Penelope's foster mom told us that she came from an unreputable breeder near Milwaukee who had fallen off the map as far as other breeders go. I think he decided to stop breeding them ethically and was just trying to make money, which, as any reputable breeder will tell you, is not a good reason to breed cats. The expenses involved in keeping them healthy pretty much rule out the possibility of making a profit most of the time. So Penelope and her siblings (still inside their mama cat) were rescued from this guy and fostered in a loving home that took great care of them. She was the last one to be adopted, and I'm so glad!
