Willow has been adopted!



Whimsical Willow is an amazing girl who only has a slight wiggle occasionally and seems to have only a slight case of CH (see below.) She is a playful, loving and friendly kitten who uses her litter box, runs, climbs, jumps and plays with her littermates just like a cat without a minor disability. (She has been examined by a vet and has a wonderful prognosis. This is not a condition that will worsen over time.)

Willow has a condition/disability known as Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH for short). This condition is not contagious to other kittens or cats, does not cause the kitty any pain, and most learn to adapt to their disability over time. CH kitties are prone to losing their balance and should stay safely indoors. Depending on the severity of the CH, some CH cats may benefit from food dishes raised up off the ground a bit. Others may benefit from carpeted pet stairs to help them climb onto a high bed ~ though most do not. CH Cats have a normal life expectancy provided they are given a safe environment and some extra watching and care.  Please see this article (and feel free to do you own research) before applying for a CH kitty!
