Couscous is a sweet, curious and playful little girl. She is a little wobbly when she moves as she has a neurological condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia or Wobbly Cat Syndrome. The condition most often occurs when a mother cat may have been exposed to the panleukopenia virus during pregnancy. As a result the brain’s cerebellum which helps with balance and coordination may not be fully developed at birth.
Other than being a little bit of a messy eater and having an unsteady gait, it doesn’t seem to effect her daily life at all. It is a lifelong condition but it is not infectious or painful. The good news is Wobbly Cats lead happy and normal lives with no medication or therapy needed. Couscous just needs a wider food and water bowl as well as a larger litter box that is easy to get in and out of.
Couscous has been building up her muscle strength playing and wrestling with her sister. She loves to run, jump, climb and chase and can walk on hardwood floors, but carpeted surfaces are a little bit easier for her. Her favourite toys are mice, wand toys and especially balls. Couscous enjoys eating, belly rubs, giving her mom kisses and sleeping with her sister who she plays with all day long.
Come meet our adorable Couscous.
