"Yabba Dabba Doo!!!" - Fred "Twinkle Toes" Flintstone
Party hard sleep hard - That's how Twinkle Toes lives his life. Twinkle Toes is a special boy who lives his life to the fullest. While Twinkle Toes does have some trouble getting around due to his Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH), he doesn't let it stop him from having fun.
Twinkle Toes needs someone who is willing to give a little extra love and care. He does need assistance with eating and relieving himself, but despite the challenges he faces, he's one happy little guy.
He is a chatty fella who definitely starts each day on the right side of the bed. Twinkle Toes is generally quiet through the night, but once you stir in the morning or open a can of food he'll talk your ear off.
While Twinkle Toes does have mobility problems due to his severe CH, he still manages to get around. While he's as graceful as Bambi on ice, he finds a way to make it work.
Twinkle Toes is still a kitten so he can get a little nippy, but he never takes it too far. As soon as you say, "ow!" he pulls back. He also has a lot of kitten energy. One of his favorite activities seems to be scuttling across the floor and launching himself into the air.
Twinkle Toes does well with dogs. He likes to bat them on the nose (lovingly of course!), but usually he's just happy to hang out and see what a dog's life is all about. Twinkle is also very curious about other cats, and loves to watch them, but doesn't really know how to play with them. It's not known how Twinkle Toes does with children, but due to his medical needs would probably do well with kids that can help him out and be gentle.
Feline cerebellar hypoplasia is a non-progressive, non-contagious neurological condition that causes balance issues. CH cats were born like this and usually wobble or have a funny gait; some cats have a minor imbalance and some are very wobbly! Cats with minor to moderate CH require no special care, or only minor accommodation, like avoiding stairs. Cats adopted from APA! with CH must be kept indoors only. CH cats have the same lifespan as other cats. For more information, please visit: lifewithchcats.com.
All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
