CH? What's that?

Spooky writes:

Mommy and Daddy both have been trying to figure out why I fall and why I'm so floppy. Today, Mommy did an internet search and they have been talking about something called CH. It doesn't sound scary. It's just letters, so why does it bother them so much?

CH, cerebellar hypoplasia, would explain my falling and flopping. It took a while, but Mommy noticed my almost-imperceptible head bobbing, which was the only thing missing from a "correct" CH diagnosis, according to what she's been reading.

Luckily, my family loves me ANYWAY, and told me that I'm theirs and that they will never leave me like my first family did. Yay!

Oh Spooky! Cats with CH can lead long, happy lives just like cats who don't have CH. There are many support and information groups on the web about this. All that's needed is a little more care and extra love for you, which I'm sure your family gives you in bucket loads.

Take care Spooky!

Agreeing with Everycat. Kitties with CH can lead lives that are just as long and healthy (minus the bobbing)as regular kitties without CH.

You're just a little more awesome for being so special!

CH is what our Moseley had. He had quite the head bobbing or ticking as we called it, especially when he was relaxed and sitting on my lap. He was such a poor jumper (falling all the time) even though he tried and he walked and ran very awkwardly, too. He lived to be 14 years old.

You are lucky to have a loving forever home that will give you all the help and love you need.

I'm so happy that you have a furever home that loves you no matter what.

Spooky, there's no need to worry. Cats with CH can lead nice, long lives, too! Our buddy Nemo (who lives at the shelter at which we volunteer) has CH, too. We adore him, and think he's absolutely perfect the way he is. :)
