My story

Ivy is a special cat who has a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia (CH). This is a developmental condition where a portion of the brain fails to develop properly in an unborn kitten. CH affects the cat's fine motor skills, balance and coordination. CH does not worsen over time. It is not painful or contagious. Cats with CH adapt to their abilities and limitations. They have a normal life expectancy and enjoy happy lives.

Ivy cannot walk but she is able to scoot around quite well. She navigates better on carpeted surfaces than hard floors. Ivy enjoys playing with toys. She loves to bat at wand toys and the ties on your hoodie. Ivy is very sweet and affectionate. She loves to be held and snuggled. Ivy is litter box trained but she lays to use the box. With slow introductions, Ivy has learned to live with other cats and dogs in her foster home. But Ivy adores her humans and is happiest when she doesn't have to share her humans.

Ivy is looking for a forever home where she will not need to go up or down stairs to access her litter box. She would do best in a calm environment with no small children. If you are looking for a cat that will never jump on your table or countertop, Ivy is your girl.

Additional adoption info

Adopting from HEA

Adoption is a huge deal to us. We make a lifetime guarantee to our companions. In return, we’re asking you to provide a lifetime commitment once you’ve invited a pet to join your family. We’re excited that you're considering adoption. We look forward to working with you to find the right match!

Our primary objective is to assure the correct match for the people and the pets that we’re sending to their forever homes. Our goal is to send dogs and cats home as quickly as we can, while still being thorough. Processing times will vary and are largely dependent on our ability to connect with your references, landlord, and veterinarian. To keep the process moving along, please make sure you’ve done your part:
1) Fill out your application completely - missing information slows down the process.
2) Let your references know to expect our call.
3) If you rent, let your landlord know to expect our call.
4) If you currently have pets, ask your veterinarian to be prepared to release your records.

We make a pact with every animal that enters our care: They’re promised a loving home for the rest of their life. In turn, when you make the commitment to adopt, we ask you to make a lifetime commitment. We believe family is forever.
