Skippy was born with cerebellar hypoplasia! This is a mild birth defect that affects his balance. He has no problem getting up on the couch or making it to the litterbox, but his balance and coordination are somewhat lacking. He'll have a normal lifespan, with no significant impairment, but he does need a home where he'll be kept safe indoors. 

He loves to play with other cats and has lived with dogs in his original foster home. He'd be fine with compassionate and thoughtful children as well. 

We left his baby pictures up because who doesn't love baby pictures, but Skippy is now 5 months old and SO handsome! He was adopted and returned because his family said they no longer had time for him and his sister. We are looking for a home for Skippy and Jif together since they love each other, and Jif helps Skippy by helping him groom.

Prior to adoption, all kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped.
