3/2016 Bonnie came to us from a Local Animal Control.  She was very lucky the shelter vet happens to be one of our supporters (Hi Amanda!) and contacted us.   She has a congenital deformity called atrophic rhinitis. Her nose looks like a bunny nose,  thus  the name Bunny. She also has many symptoms of a Cerebellar Hypoplasia kitty. Our vet feels she does have a mild case. What is Cerebellar Hypoplasia you ask? (smile)  It is a disorder found in cats and dogs that causes jerky movements, tremors and generally uncoordinated motions.  They sometimes will fall down and has trouble walking. Cerebellar Hypoplasia occurs when the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls fine motor skills and coordination, is not completely mature at birth.  It is commonly caused by the kittens  mother contracting or being vaccinated for the Panleukopenia virus while pregnant.  That stunts their cerebellum’s growth while in the womb. It can also occur is a trauma, including malnutrition occurs to the kittens while in the womb. She is Not in any pain.  Is Not contagious, can live a normal happy life.  4/2016 She is very loving except she is not fond of other cats. She has now been spayed and had a dental to fix her broken tooth. All in all, she is in decent shape. She loves catnip toys.
