Meet Dimitri 3
Dimitri is one of those kittens that just make you want to squeal with cuteness. He is entirely too precious and he knows it. He rolls around for attention and will continuously try to make eye contact in the chance someone will give him love.

He is even more precious because of a condition called ""cerebellar hypoplasia."" This is a congenital malformation of the cerebellum, which is responsible for fine-tuining movements. Because of this, CH kitties tend to be wobbly and uncoordinated. There's a sliding scale on the severity we can see. Dimitri is moderately affected so he can still hop on things that are low to the ground and walk around. He would not be able to jump up on kitchen cabinets but would likely be able to crawl up to couch level. Dimitri does not know he's different and still loves life. We love that about him.

He does great with other cats and think he would be fine with gentle dogs and kids. He cannot be with anything that chases him as he's not a very coordinated run away-er and would likely just topple over.
