Description:
pulled with Samuel and SageMeet Scruffy! He and his sister, Wicket, came to us from the Little Elm Animal Shelter with a group of other kitties. After a few weeks of observation, we noticed these two were special. They both have Cerebellar Hyperplasia (CH), often referred to as Wobbly Cat Syndrome. CH happens when the kittens brain does not finish growing and remains in an immature state in the womb due to a viral infection in the mother cat. There are different "levels" of CH in kitties. Scruffy is not as wobbly as his sister, Wicket. And in fact there are times his wobbles are barely noticeable. Scruffy is a wonderful brother to Wicket and he keeps a watchful eye on her - when they are not wrestling and playing! Our Vet mentioned Scruffy seemed hard of hearing, but his Foster Mom has not seen any sign of that. CH is not contagious and they can play with other CH kitties with no problem. In fact, Wicket and Scruffy are in a home with several other kitties - of all ages and sizes - and they get along great! Their Foster Moms home is all hardwood floors, but there are a few rugs placed around to make it easier for Wicket to get around. Its very important Wicket and Scruffy stay together. They are bonded and look to each other for safety and support. Since our Adoption Center has hard surfaces and the cages are high, these two sweeties will be adopted from their foster home. Or they can come to your home as well. We know their perfect forever home is out there and they look forward to meeting you!
