Meet Charbon: A Wobble Kitten

Introducing Charbon – a very special kitten with a very special condition.

Charbon was born with Cerebellar Hypoplasia, a neurological condition that causes him to be off balance all the time. This condition won’t get worse over time and he will learn to compensate a little, but he won’t get better (he also does not require medication). Charbon manages to function like any kitten, (eating, drinking and using the litter box) he just flops around a lot!

Charbon is a super snuggly kitten who loves to cuddle up in your arms and purr. He is a very happy little boy who likes to play with his foster sister and doesn’t let his physical disadvantages get him down! Actually, if you ask him, he doesn’t think there is anything wrong with him at all!

Charbon will require a special home with lots of love and patience. He likes carpeted floors as they provide him with extra grip and a softer landing when he bumps his head (which is often). He also isn’t so sure about stairs (they require a lot of coordination, which he is lacking), so an apartment or bungalow would be ideal for him! More information on Cerebellar Hypoplasia may be found here.

If you’re thinking a quirky cat just might make your home complete, please make sure you do your research about cats with Cerebellar Hypoplasia and that you are prepared for the commitment of owning a special needs kitty!

Charbon is polydactyl (has extra toes) and will be neutered and vaccinated (age appropriate) shortly. He was born September 6th, 2017. If you would love to give this little dude his forever home, please contact our Adoption Team today!
