Wiggles is available for adoption at our Blackstone Ave Petco Adoption Center
|Wonderful Wiggles is a snuggly lovebug! He seems to have only a mild case of CH (see below) and most of the time you'd never notice it! Like his two sisters, he runs, plays, climbs, wrestles like a champ and has absolutely no problem using a litterbox. He's a happy-go-lucky fellow who has no idea that he has a slight disability and according to our vet, his prognosis is excellent and his condition will NOT worsen. He just needs a wonderful home.
Wiggles 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!https://www.catster.com/lifestyle/cat-health-care-tips-cerebellar-hypoplasia
