Amelia

For our long-time sanctuary followers, you’d probably like to know that this is one of Pippi’s sisters! We had a mother/daughter pair a few years ago at Sebastian House. Hazel is the mom and Pippi was one of her kids. They were a bonded pair and got adopted and are doing great. Another “kitten” from the litter (she’s about seven years old now) had stayed in a foster home for a long time, and after that person could no longer keep her, she came to the sanctuary. Amelia has a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia, or CH for short. Those of you who knew Pippi know exactly what I’m talking about! It’s a neurological condition that affects their mobility – they often stumble, tumble, and have difficulty getting around. But they adapt well and make their way through the world. It’s not painful, it’s not contagious, and they live normal lives. Amelia has a more “severe” case than Pippi did, and flops over more frequently and has more litter box issues. You can click here to read more about it, and actually the Wikipedia page is pretty comprehensive too.
