Harpsie was my second cat. He was an adorable blond Persian who had a host
of ailments but who nevertheless lived to the age of 14. He had
which was diagnosed at the age of 7, but it never developed into CKD.

I'm not really a social media person but hey, I'm trying.
A Bit About Helen
I've been running this website single-handedly since 2000. I'm not a vet,
have never been a vet, and have no desire to be a vet - it's a hard job. I
do have a post graduate qualification in animal behaviour though.
I'm English and I currently live in England, though from 2004 - 2008 I
lived in the USA.
I've had seven cats so far,
five of them Persians. What can I say, I like 'em fluffy! My current cats
are Indie and Karma, who are both 15. Indie is a Chinchilla
Persian (like the Fancy Feast cat). Karma is a blue Himalayan (Colourpoint
Persian). You'll see photos of them occasionally on the site, modelling
water fountain usage and the like. Both of them are currently healthy, touch wood, apart from
hypertension, which we control with daily medication. The two of them are
rescues who came to me because of inappropriate elimination issues. Most
of the time they are fine in that regard, though the doormat calls
their name occasionally when they are stressed, such as when people come to
stay (Karma), or, in Indie's case, when I go away - she hates to be apart
