Victory is a beautiful little blue tabby with a happy and playful nature! She loves to play with toys.

Victory was born with feline cerebellar hypoplasia (CH), a non-progressive, non-contagious neurological condition that causes balance issues. CH cats 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.

Victory is considered CH severe; she can sit upright but doesn't walk. She eats with a little assistance and knows how to use the litter box.

Most severe CH kitties cannot walk or stand. Instead, many may flip-flop around. These kitties may have a bit more trouble getting to where they need to go and when, since they have less control over their movements. Severe cats may have frequent head tremors and require extra care. They may need assistance using the litter box or getting to where they need to go. Some CH kitties can improve with age. Usually this happens if they can exercise, build muscle mass, and move around. Since this can be especially difficult for severely impacted kitties (they can't really get up or move too much), their human guardians have created walkers for them. By slipping them into a harness, the kitty can move around without the fear of falling. This helps severe kitties work on their motor control and slowly build up their muscles.

Victory couldn't be sweeter if she tried. She is a special girl who needs a special human. Contact us today to learn more!

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.
