Facts about Willie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 12822
  • Hair: Short
William, affectionately known as Willie Wobbles, came into our rescue at 10 weeks of age he and his sibling were strays and ended up at a local shelter without much of a chance for rescue. The babies were pretty sick and unfortunately Willie’s sibling passed away the day before we even found out these babies were in the shelter. Willie was also not doing well either and we were told without rescue he was slated to be euthanized the next day. How can you resist a 10 week old sick kitten without hope? Although we did not know what Mr. William’s issues were, our group pulled him and began to help him heal to the best of his ability. He is one of my favorite foster cats.

Willie is a special needs kitty he is approximately 2 years old and is a very handsome black/brown tabby swirl. Willie has Cerebral Hyperplasia also known as CH; it happens in utero and causes neurological damage so that a cats balance and gate is affected. The condition has different levels of severity from mild to severe. Our little man has a very mild case and it will not progress as he ages. So what is Willie like, he is adorable, sweet, and loves to be cuddled, he loves hanging out with humans. He runs funny, sometimes can’t jump up like a normal cat, and falls down occasionally, however, he does not let his condition dictate his personality. He sleeps at the top of a 6 foot cat tower, and suns himself on the window ledge; he really doesn’t know he is different. He is such a love bug and has a sweet way about him. He is always following me around, and pawing at me to get attention. CH kitties are known as very loving cats and can live to a ripe old age. Just like any other condition, excellent food, good vet care, and lots of love is all that Willie needs to lead a happy life.If you have any questions or would like to meet this pet, please email contact@stlpetrescue.com.

About St. Louis Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

St. Louis Pet Rescue is a non-profit rescue group focusing on saving pets from local animal control facilities and other neglect situations.

We do not have a facility. All of the pets we rescue are in loving foster homes. Foster homes provide love, care training, and, if needed, rehabilitation to the pets. This also allows the pet to be more adjusted when they enter their forever home since they are used to a home environment (versus a kennel at the pound).
