Opt to Adopt: Special Needs Kitties Freddie, Zazoo and Peanut Need a Northern California Home

 

Adopt Tigger ADOPT TIGGER

This is a special Paw It Forward Post from our dear friend Savannah at Savannah’s Paw Tracks:

These three kittens were all trapped from a mom cat who likely had pan leukopenia while the kittens were in her womb.  Unfortunately, there was a fourth kitten they could never trap.  They have cerebellar hypoplasia (CH), commonly called ‘weeble wobble’ kittens.

Cerebellar hypoplasia is a disorder where the cerebellum of the brain has not fully formed. There are various causes such as bacterial or viral infections, feline pan leukopenia, caused by feline parvovirus, but can also be caused by poisoning, injury or malnutrition.  Some common symptoms are jerky movement, wobbly uncoordinated walking and head bobbing.

There is no cure for CH, it doesn’t get better but it doesn’t get worse.  A kitten will learn to compensate for his/her condition and have a normal lifespan.

Here are the sweeties:

Adopt Freddie!

This is Freddie.  Freddie is a handsome short haired white kitten with black patches and an elegant narrow face, pink nose, delightfully long pink and white ears that go with his long legs.

Freddie is a complete love – he adores attention, being picked up and delights in being stroked and will rub against your legs.  He is quite social with cats and people alike – he loves to play, wrestle, chase and cuddle with his siblings and the other kittens in the house. Freddie has mild cerebella hypoplasia (CH) which means though he falls, he can walk, run, scamper, and even climb up part way and sit on a low level of the kitty condo.

Adopt Zazoo! Say howdy to Zazoo.  Zazoo is a grey & black short haired tiger striped kitten with big green expressive eyes and white paws. She wobbles when she walks, falls a lot, and struggles to climb.  But she is essentially a happy, healthy kitten and knows how to use the litter box.  She is super sweet and loves to be pet and held.  She purrs often. Despite her balance challenges, she is a determined, curious and brave kitten, who likes to explore new places and gets back up when she falls. She will even position herself close to our border collie and watch him play.  She has an independent streak and can entertain herself cheerfully.  She loves to chase, wrestle and cuddle with her brother and sister.

Adopt Peanut! This is sweetie girl Peanut.  Peanut is a petite kitten with an exquisitely delicate face and double dotted nose.  She will watch the activity around her quite intently—sitting quietly and then venture out to be with the others.  Though she looks serious, she plays with vigor; stalking and jumping, running and wrestling and of course cuddling.  Peanut is very gentle and sweet.  Along with her siblings, Zazoo and Freddie, she has CH (cerebella hypoplasia), which means the balance center of the brain is not completely developed so she falls often.  Peanut is healthy and will live a normal lifespan. Peanut would like to be adopted with her brother Freddie or sister Zazoo. Peanut is blossoming more every day.

These kittens are in Northern California.  As much as everyone would like to have these kittens be able to go anywhere in the USA…that is not possible. It is not easy for them to travel long distances and so we must limit their search for new forever homes to the area of Northern California.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Well they are all certainly very cute! Will share and hope that they can find their homes. I remember one CH kitty in particular that I used to know named Loretta. She was an elderly cat, so proof that they can live long lives. She was also very sweet.

    Those kitties look so happy and playful, they have cute faces and don’t seem to notice their disabilities. We hope they find wonderful families to love and care for them.

    We have our paws crossed that these sweethearts find their happily ever afters soon. CH kitties have no idea that they are “special needs.” The ones we know are happy, sweet and healthy souls. 🙂

    We are purring and praying real hard for Zoe.

    They are lovely cats! The CH cats we’ve met at PAWS have all been happy and playful. They didn’t know that they had a problem.

  10. Kitty Cat Chronicles

    We have shared about these kitties since we read about them over at Savannah’s blog. As you know, our Sophie has CH – she doesn’t let that get in her way, and we know these kitties are going to have a very happy life. We hope they find their furever home soon!
