My story

Flip & Flop are located in Plattsville, ON

Microchipped, DOB: May 4, 2022

Flop is an affectionate girl who loves to be held or to snuggle up in your lap. She loves pets and will even give you kisses. Flop loves to curl up in small spaces. Flop is a special needs kitten but it doesn’t slow her down at all. She uses her litter box independently and eats well on her own with no assistance. She gets around differently then other cats but it doesn’t stop her at all from getting to where she wants to be. Flop will need a home with no access to stairs and will need a safe space/room for when you first bring her home. Flop should be adopted with her brother Flip as they love to play together.

Flip and Flop have a neurological condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH). The cerebellum is smaller in CH cats. This causes difficulty with movement, most notably when walking. CH cats often shake before moving, this is called an intention tremor. It is usually seen prior to moving toward a goal, like food or a toy. CH cats are happy and not in pain. Flip and Flop are able to use the litter box and get to their food and water. It just takes then some extra time and a few “flops” in the journey. CH cats live as long as unaffected cats.

Thank you for giving two best friends with special needs a loving home together! An adoption fee of your choice is appreciated for each of these cuties vs. our standard adoption fee of $225 per kitten.

Why adoption is a great option

Flop, a Toronto 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 Toronto, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Toronto.

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