“Josephine” is pictured at 3 weeks with her devoted Dam, Champion Vita Nova Marie Antoinette. Josephine is my only girl from Marie Antoinette who has produced many handsome boys. I’ve been practicing my Persian grooming…believe me… it is not for the faint of heart. How to get the effect without all the toxic chemical? This is the big challenge of grooming the Persian, the concept of “green” as a concept has not made it into the cat world yet. The Cat Show People use goop, which is full of petroleum chemicals!
Personally… I like my cats chemical free!!
At left, Josephine is pictured here at 5 months at the TICA annual in California, September of 2010 winning Best Persian kitten in heavy competition, then finaling 3rd best kitten, judge Laurie Schiff, the kitten count was 107.
