Cute Kitten Campaign
Here's an adorable video from my friend Jane Harrell at Petfinder. Her two kittens, Wesley and Peekaboo, have Cerebellar Hypoplasia. This is a disorder found in cats and dogs in which the cerebellum is not completely mature at birth. The disease does not get better or worse with age, but the cat or dog can usually learn to somewhat compensate for it and should have a normal lifespan. Most afflicted animals can lead a fairly normal life if special considerations for the animal's disability are taken by its owner.
These little ones are lucky because they have a forever home. Special needs pets are just as loving as "normal" pets and just as deserving of a loving home. Please share this video on your blog, twitter or your facebook profile. For more information on adopting special needs pets, please visit Petfinder.com.
