How Severe is Your Cat’s Cerebellar Hypoplasia?

March 5, 2012

Here you can see how Ellie (left) has a wider hind-leg stance than CG (right). This helps her keep her balance.

If you’ve been following our readers’ CH kitties’ profiles, then you know how greatly the degree of cerebellar hypoplasia differs from cat to cat. Even if kittens are litter mates, one can be mildly impacted while another can have a more severe case. What’s even more interesting is that your cat’s CH may improve over time — so while your kitten may be moderately impacted now, she may only show mild symptoms as an adult.

Consequently, I wanted to ask all readers: How severe is your cat’s cerebellar hypoplasia?

If you’re not quite sure how your cat’s CH compares, check out this post on the degrees of CH based on what I’ve seen and read from other CH cat parents.

So what do you think? Please take the poll below, and I’ll share the results soon!

    My Faith is mild and she seems to have gotten much better as she’s gotten older. She can even jump off the bed now and land on her feet! Boo Boo is much worse, I would call him moderate. He can’t walk across the room without falling over several times but he manages. Amazing the way they have both learned to compensate!!
