Age: 5 months
Info: Grandpa *would like to be adopted with his sister, Elvira*
Born with a neurological condition called Cerebellar hypoplasia, commonly referred to as “Drunk Cat Syndrome” or “Wobbly Cat Syndrome”, Grandpa has a smaller than normal cerebellum which causes unsteadiness on his feet, balance issues & head tremors. Cats with CH often live normal lives but require a bit of extra consideration on their living environment & day to day care such as consistent bathing, a modified Litterbox for ease of access, carpeted floors for better traction, padding of hard or jagged surfaces to avoid injury & blockage of railings to avoid potential falls on staircases.
Don’t let his condition fool you however, Grandpa doesn’t let his condition deter him! He has learned to scale the couch, play with his sister Elvira and is a big cuddler! He purrs up a storm, enjoys a good petting session and LOVES to be brushed! His favorite thing is paper bags. Grandpa’s CH is moderate to severe but has improved greatly with physiotherapy and is now starting to walk a few steps, with time he will improve even further and may gain as much mobility as his sister, Elvira. He requires bathing several times a week & a limited diet due to a sensitive tummy.
