Hello From The Antarctic

    Hello! I found your site awhile ago when I was looking for help on grooming Persians (specifically getting rid of the "eye boogies" they can get.) I've lurked ever since, and decided I should come out of the woodwork.

    I work in Antarctica over part of the year, but when I am off work, I'm pleased to share my life with my two cats, a Creame Point Himi named Gypsy Rose and a bicolour (Red and White) Persian named Percy. My cats get annoyed by me leaving, but I can assure you, their routine does not get disrupted as they remain in place year-round.

    Both are altered, and neither has shown, although both are papered. I had a PKD Persian once and since then I've been religious about interviewing the breeder as much as they interview me, and insist on seeing the genetic test proof.

    Hello! That's so exciting that you work in Antarctica! I was there almost 11 years ago on a marathon tour (I walked the half - my dad's the marathon runner) and it was the most amazing experience of my life.

    Your kitties are so cute and fluffy!

    WELCOME! Your cats are magnificent. Antartica...I will now officially cease griping about the cold in North Carolina this winter ~she says with her fingers crossed behind her back, knowing full well that she will~! Never been near it, although I got pretty close to the OTHER end of the world. My dad was stationed at Elmendorf AFB, Anchorage, Alaska when I was much, much younger.

    Another 'warm' welcome especially when you're working up in Antarctica. ;) I also have a Persian and your two cats, Gypsy Rose & Percy, are beyond gorgeous. :hearthrob::redheartpump: I'm sure you must have many interesting stories to share. I look forward to seeing more pics of your lovely felines here: Fur Pictures and Videos Only!

    Do tell us about Antarctica, and when the time comes, maybe some opinions on IMO: In My Opinion
