Sweetie's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Sweetie's Story...
Sweetie is a three month kitten who was found abandoned & raised as a single bottle baby by a veterinarian. Her name says it all, she's a sweet cuddly girl who loves to snuggle. But she's no pushover! When she wants something she let's you know!
While we cannot make a definitive diagnosis without an MRI, she has symptoms that present themselves as extremely mild case of cerebellar hypoplasia or CH. That could explain why her feline mommy abandoned her- because she was a bit different. We think it makes her even cuter!
She can get around just fine but she has a bit of a wobbly gait, bumps into things sometimes & if she gets stuck in a tight space like between a door and the wall she can't figure out how to get out of that predicament because she's a bit uncoordinated. She can't jump but can climb onto a short bench. She uses her litterbox just fine!
She loves to play and we noticed great improvement in her mobility & confidence level when we introduced her to a feline friend. She would do well in a quiet to moderately active household, with a kitty companion that will PLAY & interact with her. She gets along great with Bomba & he seems to helping her with her kitten skills & confidence.
Again we cannot make a definitive diagnosis and whatever it is, it's a VERY MILD CASE. It's possible that she could have some type of cognitive damage or just plain be a clumsy, quirky kitty! But we have foster moms who have adopted cats with much more severe cases of CH & their kitties are happy & healthy- just floppy :0) They would be happy to advise you on the condition. We would describe her symptoms as half as bad as Nugget, the first kitten video featured here: http://lifewithchcats.com/2011/09/30/degrees-of-cerebellar-hypoplasia/

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sweetie, a Rocklin Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Rocklin, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Rocklin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rocklin already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Rocklin breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rocklin paves the way for another one to be saved.
