Stormy’s life may have started rough, but things are brightening up considerably for this tiny little baby!  Her bags are packed, the car is loaded and she is now on her way to a wonderful rescue organization in the bay area!

Found in a storm drain, too young to survive on her own, she was brought into the Tehama County Animal Care Center.  Stormy, however, is not like all the other little kitties… even though she likes to play, she can’t run and jump like they do. 

It is believed that Stormy has Cerebellar Hypoplasia, a disorder where the cerebellum of the brain has not fully formed.  Bacterial or viral infections can cause it, but it can also be caused by injury or malnutrition.  The most common symptoms are jerky movements, wobbly uncoordinated walking, and head bobbing.  There is no cure for Cerebella Hyperplasia, it doesn’t get better, BUT it doesn’t get worse.  A kitten will learn to compensate for his/her condition and can have a normal lifespan. 

Knowing that this little munchkin is off to have a wonderful life, we wish her bon voyage !!!
