Facts about Peep

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Peep is a petite young lady with moderate Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH), a condition in which the cerebellum is underdeveloped. It sometimes happens during development and affects a cat’s balance and coordination. Her condition will not affect her life expectancy. It’s not degenerative, and she will never get any worse. More information on CH can be found at http://tenthlifecats.org/all-about-cats/health-and-care/ch.

Peep had hard time learning to walk and eat. She used to pull herself forward and crawl and had to initially eat only soft food. To make sure she strengthened her muscles her foster mom never crated her, encouraging her to roam around and explore her surroundings. She even exercised by walking down a long hallway. Peep learns to adapt to her condition more and more. Each day she gets a little stronger.
Now Peep gets around just fine. She falls a lot but is able to walk even on hardwood floors. She loves chasing the laser dot but needs a carpeted area to do so. She is fearless! Peep is also able to climb to a lower level of the cat tree, and doesn't let the fact that she can't get down on her own stop her! She is fearless and determined to climb like any other cat. Peep is very sweet and loving. She is even friendly with other cats.

She generally uses low litter box with a doggie pad in front since it is easier for her. She tends to fall in the litterbox and from time to time needs some help getting cleaned up. She’s gotten much better about this, and now only needs a bath about once a month. She takes baths in a bathroom sink and enjoys it.

She is on a grain free diet, and she loves Spot’s Stew by Halo. She eats wet food and dry food all by herself.

Peep is a very ambitious kitty. Despite all the difficulties she is doing really well. She never lets her condition hold her back. She is looking for a permanent home with someone who has patience and will understand her needs. She would like someone who does not mind giving her a bath from time to time, and can help her down from the cat tree. Peep loves to snuggle, and will need lots of belly rubs. She also is into fashion like many young ladies and likes to be wrapped in pretty fabric or play with shiny objects:)

Peep deserves a happy fulfilling life despite her condition. Please consider giving this very special kitty a forever home!

About Tenth Life Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Tenth Life is an animal welfare organization that provides another chance at life to injured and abused stray cats. Our focus is on felines with extreme medical needs or ongoing conditions that make it difficult for typical shelters to afford their care.

Stage one of our mission is getting needy cats off the streets of St. Louis and into caring Foster Homes, where they await their forever homes. Stage two´s goal is to open a shelter building that will house special-needs kitties in a cage-free, no-kill setting until they can be carefully placed in their forever homes.
