Cerebellar Hypoplasia

I’ve talked — tangentially — about this before, but never directly. I did have one severely CH kitten a while back but only overnight. I never wrote about him.

This ADORABLE wobbly pair arrived the other day. Through a series of unavoidable circumstances, I am their fourth foster home in about two weeks!! Poor little peanuts. I literally bubble-wrapped the sharp corners and hard edges in the foster room. I don’t want them bonking their little noggins any more than necessary. Thomas is a little bit more coordinated than Claire.

I think they’d still be classed as moderate to severe CH; they can eat on their own (boy! can they eat). They can litter on their own but it can get a bit messy. They are at least as playful as “regular” kittens, if not more. I wonder if that’s why they eat so much? They’re just using up energy all the time! Thomas can stand, Claire, not so much. But holy smokes they can move! The other morning I opened the door and before I could react Thomas was out and nearly to the livingroom. And that’s on the slippery floor!

They had their spay & neuter surgery the day I got them and I’ll be getting them posted on the website asap. Toronto Cat Rescue has had a number of CH kittens pass through and all have found amazing homes!

** Update:  Turns out Wynken and Nod were adopted together!
