Kittens Born With CH Need Homes

August 21, 2020

A litter of kittens just born in foster care for KVCKR have been diagnosed with cerebellar hypoplasia. Feline cerebellar hypoplasia is a neurological disorder that occurs when a cat's brain did not develop properly in the womb. It is not a life threatening or contagious disorder, but cats with cerebellar hypoplasia often have trouble walking, running, keeping balanced, jumping, and locating objects. CH will not get worse over time, but it will also not get better, which means most kittens will adapt over time and learn to live with their disability.
All of this said, these kittens are going to require special homes and will not be able to live in our main building at the shelter, where most of our cats waiting for homes lives. If we have any special people out there who want to open their homes and hearts to these adorable little kittens - please let us know. Or, if you know of a shelter that deals with special needs cats, we would apprecaite the referral. These kittens deserve a chance at living their best life and we could use your help making that wish come true. To read more on CH, this is a great article:
