Sylvia needs to find a permanent home, preferably with other animals. She likes large dogs. I agreed to foster Sylvia for a woman going through a rough patch, but my cat hates her, and she is locked up all day in a room all by herself.
It is unlikely that the original owner will ever be able to get back on her feet, and she is willing to allow Sylvia to find a permanent home with a loving forever family who understands her particular issues.
Health of the cat:
Sylvia has extremely mild Cereballer Hypolasia*, she may have some issues with her vision although I think she sees fine (as a kitten she had eye issues). According to her original owner, she has occasional seizures that do not need to be treated.
She has some litter issues, and seems to prefer eliminating on puppy pads, but also uses a litter box.
She can not be an outdoor cat because of the CH and the vision problems.
Temperament of cat:
She is a very inquisitive, friendly, and social cat. In her previous home, the dog was her best friend, and she got along well with the other cats.
She is not a lap cat but she will allow herself to be held, especially if you are rubbing her face and nose.
*Cerebellar Hypoplasia is a disorder where the cerebellum of the brain has not fully formed. There are various causes such as bacterial or viral infections, feline panleukopenia, caused by feline parvovirus, but can also be caused by poisoning, injury or malnutrition. Some common symptoms are jerky movement, wobbly uncoordinated walking and head bobbing.
There is no cure for CH, it doesn’t get better but it doesn’t get worse. A kitten will learn to compensate for his/her condition and have a normal lifespan. These cats should not be allowed outside as they have no defense against predators. -chkitty.org
