Living with a CH Cat: How to Deal with the Heart Attacks

Living with a CH Cat: How to Deal with the Heart Attacks

Living with a CH Cat: How to Deal with the Heart Attacks A few months ago, I got a call from a fellow cat blogger, Jeanne from Random Felines. Jeanne’s cat, Chanel, has a head tilt and balance issues caused by an ear infection, and she wanted to know how I dealt with the heart attacks. Living with a cat with cerebellar hypoplasia, I knew exactly what she meant by “heart attacks”. You know, that feeling when your heart completely...

Sophie's Got Some New STICK Moves | #WobblyWednesday

Sophie’s Got Some New STICK Moves | #WobblyWednesday Besides her daddy, Sophie’s most favoritest thing in the world is STICK (the all caps signify her enthusiasm). STICK is what we call all of her wand toys. Sophie has quite a collection: feathery sticks, sticks with little toys on the end, ribbon sticks, retractable sticks, you name it. But hands down, her favorite sticks are the broken ones…. you know, the ones that used to have toys on the end or...

Snow Day with the KCC Adventure Team!

Snow Day with the KCC Adventure Team!

Snow Day with the KCC Adventure Team! Last week, we experienced a rare treat for Georgia… SNOW! It’s been four years since the last snow day when Sophie went sledding. This time we didn’t get enough snow for sledding, and it all melted by the early afternoon, but the KCC Adventure Team did get out into the snow for a few minutes. It was Kylo’s first snow day! And probably his last… he was not a fan. Needless to say,...

Cerebellar Hypoplasia Cats and Anesthesia: Is it Safe?

Cerebellar Hypoplasia Cats & Anesthesia: Is it Safe?

Cerebellar Hypoplasia Cats and Anesthesia: Is it Safe? The topic of anesthesia and cats with cerebellar hypoplasia is one that I’ve seen come up time and time again. Naturally, CH cat parents are usually worried about having their cat undergo surgery and anesthesia. After all, a kitty with cerebellar hypoplasia already has a brain that doesn’t function 100%. Can anesthesia make their condition worse? Can a CH cat handle anesthesia? Is it safe? The short answer is YES – anesthesia...

The KCC Adventure Team in Search of the Great Pumpkin

The KCC Adventure Team in Search of the Great Pumpkin We’ve been waiting on some cooler fall weather so we could get outside with the KCC Adventure Team, but we haven’t had any luck there. It still feels like summertime in our neck of the woods, but we got out and about this past weekend anyway! We decided to hit up the local pumpkin patch in search of this “Great Pumpkin” that’s always the talk of the season… “Ready or...

5 Life Lessons My CH Cat Has Taught Me

5 Life Lesson My CH Cat Has Taught Me

5 Life Lessons My CH Cat Has Taught Me Almost five years ago, Bobby and I met a cat that would forever change our lives for the better. We didn’t know it at the time, and we didn’t even adopt her after that initial meeting. It took us almost three months after meeting her before we decided to bring Sophie home with us, and our lives have never been the same. It’s true, sharing our lives with a cat with...

Back Yard Adventures with the KCC Adventure Team

Back Yard Adventures with the KCC Adventure Team - Caster

Back Yard Adventures with the KCC Adventure Team We are having serious adventure withdrawals over here! The KCC Adventure Team hasn’t been outdoors in weeks because it’s been way too hot. Not only is it just plain miserable, it’s also not safe for the kitties to be out in the heat. We’ve been hoping and praying for it to cool down some, but unfortunately 90 degree weather will be our norm for a while longer. While that means we can’t...
