Sweet Pea's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Sweet Pea's Story...
Sweet Pea is a ball of sweetness and fun. He is about 2 yrs old and just adorable. One of our volunteers rescued him and his housemate, Rio from a kill shelter where they were surrendered by their owner, because they felt they could no longer care for them. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, and tested neg for felv/fiv.

Sweet Pea has what is known as CH. (in a nutshell, all that is wrong with him, is that his balance isnt as good as a normal cat. He will lose his balance when walking or running). Here is a bit about it:

CH Cats – We make great pets!
Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia is a widely misunderstood affliction that causes the unnecessary destruction of thousands of cats annually. Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia, is also known as Feline Cerebellum Hypoplasia, Feline CH, Feline Cerebral Hypoplasia, Spastic Cat Syndrome, Feline Cerebellar Ataxia, and Wobbly Cat Syndrome. Feline CH is caused in-utero when the pregnant mother cat contracts Feline Distemper.
Due to under-development of the cerebellum, which controls balance and coordination, CH Cats have mild to severe physical coordination issues. Some of the symptoms of Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia include:
•The CH Cat may fall over for no apparent reason
•Some Cats with CH have a high stepping, prancing gait, and “walk loud”
•Most Cats with CH have a general lack of balance, and for example, may have difficulty climbing stairs
•Cats more seriously afflicted with Cerebellar Hypoplasia may not be able to walk more than a few steps without falling.
Surprisingly, for the right home, Wobbly Kitties make wonderful companions. Their intelligence is normal, they feel no pain, and live long and healthy lives. They tend to be more dependent on humans, and often build very strong bonds with their adoptive parents.
The most endearing attribute of Cats with CH is their attitude. They possess incredible determination in overcoming their affliction.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sweet Pea, a East Brunswick Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in East Brunswick, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in East Brunswick.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in East Brunswick 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 East Brunswick 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 East Brunswick paves the way for another one to be saved.
