Keera and her brother, Keno, were born approximately 4-29-16 and are ready for adoption. Keera is very special. She is deaf and has been diagnosed with mild Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH), a disorder affecting the cerebellum (the part of the brain that controls motor skills and motility). Typically, the cerebellum is not fully formed in cats with CH. Common symptoms include jerky movements, wobbly walking , head bobbing and tremors. In Keera's case, her CH is mild. She is just a little clumsy and her head occasionally wobbles a bit. As with other CH cats, Keera is learning to compensate for her disability. CH cats are expected to live a normal lifespan, without pain. Keera is a sweetie pie. She will sit at your feet, meow and look at you longingly, while she patiently waits for you to pick her up. Because of her issues, she needs to go to a home without dogs and without stairs. She is happy and healthy, with no idea she is 'special'. She gives chin and nose kisses & loves head and belly rubs. Her brother, Keno, adores her, plays with her and grooms her when they cuddle. They would like to be adopted together. Besides her endearing personality, Keera has some absolutely adorable physical characteristics. She is polydactyl (front left only), with very big thumb claws, Most adorable is the spot on her right side. It resembles a heart. Keera is so loveable, your heart will embrace her. Please note that it is Fancy Cats' policy that kittens be adopted in pairs or have an age-appropriate playmate in the home already. We also do not adopt kittens to families with children under six years old without seeing appropriate history/experience with cats.
