Hi there my name is Fritz and have Feline cerebellar hypoplasia. What is that exactly you may be wondering? It’s a non-progressive, non-contagious neurological condition that results in walking and balance problems. A kitten that is born with “CH” their cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls fine motor skills and coordination, is underdeveloped at birth. This does not mean I am not adoptable or have health concerns, it simply means I am unique! I am a very loving and playful fella that likes to interact with other kitties. Of course my forever family will need to be mindful of my surroundings and work with me. Check out the following link to learn more about CH cats https://lifewithchcats.com/ch-topics-tips/
Please keep in mind the commitment when adopting kitten(s) as the the typical lifespan ranges somewhere between 13 and 17 years, according to the ASPCA. However, it isn’t uncommon for indoor cats to live to at least 20+ years.
If you are interested in meeting Fritz submit an application and a representative with Operation Hood will contact you to set up a time for a meet and greet. By submitting an application, it does not obligate you to adopt it simply allows us to get to know the potential adopter better.
