Tell Us About Your CH Cat!
You know it — your CH cat is pretty darn special. So it’s time to tell all of us about him or her! If you’re game:
- Please feel free to send me stories, photos and videos about your CH kitty. Specific topics can be found below.
- You can include information in a post’s comment, or you can email me at: amanda.maurer (at) gmail.com.
- If you have more than one CH cat, feel free to send in separate responses for each.
- Please send at least one photo with each submission, if possible. Obviously, feel free to send more, too!
This topic is simple enough – please share the story behind your CH cat’s adoption. How did you find out about your CH cat? Did you know anything about cerebellar hypoplasia prior to adopting? What were early struggles you overcame? Have any heartwarming tales?
