The best rescue stories have happy endings, but the very best ones are about less-adoptable cats and humans with really big hearts. We wanted to share one of those with you today. You may have seen a post on Savannah’s Paw Tracks back in October about a trio of kittens with cerebellar hypoplasia (often referred to as CH) up for adoption. CH cats are often referred to as wobbly cats because the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls fine motor skills and coordination, is underdeveloped at birth. Even though this is a non-progressive and non-contagious neurological condition, they are considered less adoptable cats since their uneven gait and motor skills make many adopters pass them up in favor of other cats.
We were forwarded the most amazing update email, and we’re simply going to post it as the original email read:
The three sweet CH kittens found their forever home this past weekend – together! A wonderful man was searching for one as a playmate for his CH little boy and found mine on the CH cat FB page. Once he met all of them, he could not think of separating them. This guy is awesome – totally loves CH cats and said that he is only interested in adopting them. He has lots of space and means to provide for them. He’s home most of the time and can dote on them. I spent 3 hours with him and called a reference so I feel quite good about it. He has been in touch with me each day describing their progress. He loves them as I have.
In this season when the year is leaving and talk about opening their hearts and give gifts to one another, one adopter showed incredible generosity and love by taking in all three of these kittens. He’ll be waking up on Christmas morning with the love of all three special kittens, and that’s a gift that you can’t wrap and put under a tree.
Special thanks to Savannah for letting us be the ones to share this wonderful news with everyone!
