Meet Ziggy

December 28, 2011

Meet Ziggy, Tardy’s little brother!

How old are you Ziggy?

I am Ziggy and I will be two on July fourth!!

How severe is your CH?

Just like my older brother, Tardy. We wobble and flop and do back flips, but we are happy!!

Do you have any funny stories that have happened to you because of CH? Or perhaps a story about how you figured out how to do something CH kitties may not be able to do?

When Mommy and Daddy (the best in the whole world!!) first brought me home, I met Tardy (MY brother, but I didn’t know that then!!!) and I reared my head up and HISSSSSSSED real long, and Tardy looked at me and he reared his head up and HISSSSSED at me, then we both fell over.

The first day my Mommy and Daddy came to meet me at my old house, Mommy picked me up and looked at me with such love, I forgot everything and stuck all my claws in her head, she said everyone thought it looked like “Alien”. When I am evil, they call me ZigAlien. I never attached myself to Mommy’s head again.

Have you ever hurt yourself because of your CH?

I broke my ear.

Has your mom found any ways to help you with your condition?

Mom and Dad adopted me, best thing they EVER did!!

What do you think people need to know about CH?

That we are out here, we need homes, and we need love just like anyone else.

What is your favorite and least favorite thing about having CH?

My worse favorite thing ever is that I can’t control my evil side. I hurt Mommy lots of times and it makes me feel bad. My Daddy is afraid to touch me unless Mommy is holding me, it makes me feel bad, I love them both and never *want* to hurt them. I am trying SOOOO hard to be calm.

Do you have any words of wisdom for other CH parents?

Take your time with us, we deserve your love.

Ziggy, how do you feel about being in a two CH household?

I love my brother, at first we didn’t know what to make of each other, but now we have a secret language. Tardy taught it to me, he’s been to a pet physic and knows how to talk to me with his head, he’s one smart brother!!! I love my family, including my two sisters, they love me too : )

    LOL!!! When he met his brother they hissed at each other and then fell over! I absolutely laughed out loud!

    I understand the ‘evil side’ too. My Percy has yet to learn it is no fun to play with a kitty that is all claws and fangs.

    Ziggy has that CH temper to the hilt. There is an article about his temper in the January newsletter, due out tonight (new years eve)

    Ziggy’s looks are so stunningly exotic that it’s hard to imagine his ‘ Demon Child’ side.

    Here in Miami, I attended a ‘Chat Noir’ Gala to raise awareness that black cats are among the least adopted, for whatever combination of untenable reasons.

    So as a Black, Special Needs kitty, with aggression issues as well, if Lizzie and Neal hadn’t stepped up, Zig’s chances would have probably been exactly none.

    (” Oh, Yes! We want THAT one!” )

    And having to surgically remove him from Lizzie’s head was a somewhat inauspicious beginning. But some guys have all the luck; with his patient and loving parents, and a big bro and mentor like Tardy, I’m betting he’ll mellow with time.

    Cool cat. =^..^= Sho

    He *has* mellowed somewhat, although you’d never convince my friend who he attacked and chased out of the house last week : ))


  1. Tardy, Thank You for Everything « Life with Cerebellar Hypoplasia Cats
