About Timmy

Timmy is a lovely kitten, purrs all the time and loves to run and play. He is not shy.  He will eat non-stop if allowed so you must be aware not to overfeed him.  He also nips quite a bit when he is overly affectionate.  Potential adopters need to be aware of this as I am not sure you can train him not to do this.

Timmy has a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia and because of this he has trouble maintaining balance and jumping.  He will however try to climb anything. Cerebellar hypoplasia is a neurological condition in which the cerebellum is smaller than usual or not completely developed. The condition is caused by a lack of development of the brain, there is no treatment.  Kittens with cerebellar hypoplasia are not infectious to other kittens or cats, are not in any pain, and learn to adapt to their disability. They must be kept indoors as they are prone to losing their balance and could easily be injured or attacked if they go outdoors.  (CCAR ID: C21-200)
