My story

Age: ~7 months

Hello, I'm TOPSY!

I'm here at the shelter with my brother, Turvy, and we are a pair of VERY special kitties! For starters we are incredibly loving, affectionate, and sweet. We also love to party, like most kit-weens do, and are VERY much into our toys and household exploration. What makes us a little extra special is that we were both born with Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH), which is a congenital condition that impacts the part of our brain that controls fine motor skills, balance, and coordination. In short -- we wobble! One of our caretakers likened us to "popcorn," as our bodies pop and wobble as we move from point A to point B. We're clumsy, we're messy, but we are OH. SO. CUTE!

Our perfect adopter would be willing to adopt us both together -- as we have developed a strong bond in our short lives. And two CHips are better than one! If you're interested in learning more about us, the adoption counselors at the SCSPCA can fill you in on what life could be like with two kittens like us. We promise, it's a blast!

Turvy and I are doing great in our foster home but would love to find our forever home soon. Could it be with you?

Additional adoption info

In response to COVID-19, and the current social distancing rules, all of our animals are now being housed in foster homes and our adoption procedures have changed. Please read the following ADOPTION STEPS on our website for further details! **Please Note: Most of our adoptions are beginning with a foster-to-adopt period, and because of this, we are temporarily unable to consider applications from households outside the counties of: Santa Cruz, San Benito, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Monterey. If you rent, please have a copy of your lease or a letter from your landlord that states you can have a pet(s) ready. If you’re adopting a dog, introduce your future friend to any other dogs in the family (dog adoptions only).
