CH Cats Cav & Lucy Go Viral
You see, lately a set of six gifs (video images) of the cats has gone viral. I have no idea how, when or why these gifs were created and became popular, but I’ve encountered the set a number of times over the last few days.
Unfortunately, since there aren’t many people who understand that these cats have CH, other silly rumors and diagnoses are being spread about these two. I’ve seen dozens of comments ranging from people claiming the cats are high to others saying they have fainting-goat syndrome. I’m happy to say that some folks who are knowledgable have come to these kitties’ defense and explain that nothing’s wrong with these cats, they simply have cerebellar hypoplasia.
It’s times like these when knowledge is very powerful — and you couldn’t ask for a better opportunity to be an advocate for CH cats. Remember, these little ones need you to speak up for them, and you have plenty of resources at hand, too:

Cerebellar Hypoplasia educational materials (the flier and pamphlet)
Fortunately, it’s obvious that the person who created the original video (I’m assuming their pet parent) understands their condition, as the video has been titled “Breakfast of the CHittens.” If you check out the owner’s channel, you can find more videos about these two, too.
