The series Woodmere Cats began with a dedicated portrait drawing of the artist’s cat, Omar, who was diagnosed with cancer.  Brenner later bridged the drawing to a bronze casted sculpture, the first made at PaFA, where she was teaching at the time in 1987.

Two years later, she casted a second edition of cats, of which is included in the series now at the Woodmere
More of her cats have been seen installed in the past at other locations, including Eastern State Penitentiary.
