If you care for an elderly, injured or special needs pet, you've come to the right place!
Meet Wren, Bishop, and Hanzel! All three are special needs cats that have a condition called Cerebellar-Hypoplasia (CH). CH is a neurological condition that is not contagious, does not get worse over time, and doesn't cause them any pain. Essentially, it means part of their brain didn't form properly, and subsequently they are wobbly when they walk - and SUPER cute.

CH cats can make wonderful pets - they are able to eat, jump, play, and use the litter box, they just have a little extra swagger while doing so. We are a small rescue who currently has three CH cats available for adoption.
Wren (black and white female), is a 6 month old beauty who has moderate CH. She is the sweetest girl who loves to meow, eat, and play with her foster brothers and sisters. She is fully vetted, including spayed, up to date on vaccines, FIV/Felk negative, and microchipped. She does great with dogs and cats.
Bishop (brown/gray tabby male) is a 7 month old guy who has very mild CH, and is able to jump onto the counters, saunter around, and only has very mild CH symptoms. He loves nothing more than human attention, and greets everyone who enters the house. He also loves to wind around peoples ankles, lean up against them asking for ear scratches, and is generally a charming man. He is great with all cats and dogs, and is fully vetted.
Hanzel(black and white male) is a 5 year old gentleman who has mild-moderate CH. His favorite things include hanging out on the top story of the cat tree, chasing a toy mouse, and snuggling with people. He is great with cats and dogs and is fully vetted.
Please contact us if you are interested in knowing more about CH cats, how it affects them or you, or to learn more on one of the above cats. They are all amazing cats who will make someone a wonderful companion. Please don't let the fact that they're a little wobbly stop them from giving you a lifetime of love. Please note that all applicants must be willing to fill out an adoption application and pay a rehoming fee in order to offset the cost of vet care. Thanks!
