    Cerebellar Hypoplasia Video

    Well done video promoting special needs kittys! This looks a bit too familiar lol! Although some of my M*A*S*H Unit CH kitties are a bit worse than these kittens..but little troupers! (Video will play after commercial)

    And they are local to me too, but I manage to find enough by myself

    Great video Jan! MIke is helping do TNR trapping in Baton Rouge and there was a Tuxie with CH that he set his heart on getting.. He finally got her and she is stunningly beautiful and we are going to try to find a home for her rather than turn her loose again. She seems to be very calm and not completely feral as he has been able to pick her up, even before he caught her. I have pictures of her to post as soon as I get time.

    What a wonderful video, and how good of the station and the MSPCA to help educate people about CH kitties and their limitations and their potentials.

    Will we get to hear if/when they get adopted too?

    Elmer is starting to rehearse for the Detroit TV cameras. And surely the networks will be calling soon.

    The two with darker orange fur seem to be the least affected, the lighter orange is moderate like my CH kitten, and the black and white seems to be the most severe of the group. I remember how weak Ashley was when I fostered her because in the crowded shelter environment they hadn't noticed that, although she could pick up dry food kibbles, she immediately dropped them. It was wonderful seeing her gain strength and energy when I switched to wet food and tiny kibbles. I never thought of the leash as this foster mom did. Did you ever use that method, Jan? The cat dancer toy and laser light have helped Ashley with her coordination.

    Ooh! Neato, will watch after I click submit.

    I need to go print out some CH information, too.

    Laura, I'm SOOO happy that Mike caught that special sounding CH tuxie! Is she a kitten or adult? I can't wait to see some pictures.
    Lizzie, With my worst affected CH kitty Eli, I used a stretchy jersey material and slung it under his stomach and chest and taught him how to prop himself up, and manuever around. I worked on strength on all 4 legs at first, and then taught him to splay his front legs out and sit when he ate. He's become very "flazey" lately though (fat & lazy..another Furminology candidate?)! He lays on his side to eat now, and misses no meals! He's around 11 or 12 now, so I don't push him to get in the litterbox anymore. He used to be very good about it, but lately he'd prefer to use the linoleum sheets outside the boxes.
    And nobody noticed...there were only 3 kittens at the beginning of the video, and at the end there were 4! Not certain that the 4th is a littermate though.
    I'd love to know the outcome and if they all got purrfect homes, but if they made the T.V. then chances are excellent they all did, or will.
