Tippy and Crash

These two sweet kittens are only about 9 weeks old.   They are both sweet and loving and outgoing kittens.    Both to have a mild case of CH.   Tippy is extremely mild she only has a slight head tremor that is only noticeable sometimes.  She’s also polydactyl so has very big and sweet feet!

Crash has a bit more of a moderate case of CH… He can get around just fine he can eat and drink on his own.   We can even climb up a cat tree!  So believe me none of this slows him down.  we are just working on his bathroom habits at the moment getting him used to using a litter box.

It would be amazing if they could get a home together as they’re super bonded.

Cerebellar Hypoplasia (cer·e·bel·lar hy·po·pla·sia) is a disorder found in cats and dogs which causes jerky movements, tremors, and generally uncoordinated motion, just like ataxic cerebral palsy in humans.  A cat with CH often falls down and has trouble walking or cannot seem to walk at all.  CH in cats is non-progressive, meaning it does not get worse with age.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
