Playful and cuddly, that is me...CeCe! I am very active and enjoy going through my tunnels, sitting in my scratching hideaway and looking for all the dog bowls to taste their water. I'm a bit wobbly on my feet and my right front paw wants to go but doesn't respond as I intend it to, but I am quick and get around just fine. See I am called a CH cat along with my brother and regardless of this condition (read more about it below), we like to sit in the sun, by a window, or up on the sofa in your lap or next to you just like every other cat. We just cannot jump and that means I will meow loudly for your assistance. I'm a decent climber, just not as strong as my brother, Spencer. That just means I eat extra because I burn up lots of calories - I am an ambitious and determined little girl. We have been in training and I have received great marks for navigating around different rooms with various surfaces. I sometimes still need a bit of help to hold me still when I eat because otherwise I'm like a chicken pecking and getting very little on the uptake. And, I am not as brave as my brother - I like people and pets that move slowly and don't spook me and I tend to be sensitive to loud noises. Hey-we all have our thing...right? The good news is that I can always make your friends laugh when I scramble around and that is okay because they scoop me up and give me lots of cuddles and love. I do enjoy getting belly rubs and lots of attention and I'm really hoping that my brother Spencer and I can get a new home together because we really like to sleep, eat and play together!

Special Needs: Spencer and Cece have cerebellar hypoplasia (CH). This is a disorder which causes jerky movements, tremors and generally walking and balance problems (wobbly cat, drunken sailor cat). It is a non-progressive and non-contagious condition. Symptoms were noticed when the kittens starting walking. CH cats can live as long as any other cat! And there is no special treatment for CH, cats other than managing the condition by "CH kitty proofing" your home. CH cats are great climbers but cannot jump and benefit from ramps to access furniture, padding on sharp corners, yoga mats and other textured floors or carpeting and raised bowls for food and water. Mixing water in canned food helps keep them hydrated. Stairs can be especially dangerous for CH cats due to their imbalance. CH cats are very prone to chipping their teeth. Besides the issues with being uncoordinated, there are no conditions to worry about. They are susceptible to the same medical problems that any other cat may have. It’s the injuries that can happen from the in-coordination that can be the highest cause of problems. Spencer and CeCe have Moderate CH - Cats with moderate CH can get around on their own, but one end of their body may appear to be doing something entirely different from the other half. They frequently lose their balance, have noticeable head tremors, and walk with their legs splayed widely apart.
