Sophie Jumps! | #WobblyWednesday

Sophie has been hard at work practicing her jumping, and she has something she wants to show you guys today…

She sure has come a long way in the last few years! When we first adopted her, she wouldn’t even try to jump up on the bed. She would just sit beside it and cry until we picked her up. Then she started climbing up the side of the bed (and the couch and other furniture). Eventually she started jumping, but she didn’t always hit her target. She would either not jump quite high enough, or she would jump straight up or even backwards instead of forwards. Then she finally nailed it, and it was awesome!

Sure, she still climbs sometimes or has the occasional missed target, but 7 times out of 10 she nails her jumps! Sophie may not be graceful, but she’s got style!

Cerebellar hypoplasia doesn’t keep this girl on the ground! She does wear herself out sometimes though… 😉

Sophie Jumps! Sophie, CH Kitty, has worn herself out! #WobblyWednesday

Happy #WobblyWednesday!

    She must have felt such a sense of accomplishment when she first started being able to jump up on the bed.

    The last picture of this post is so sweet: I met a few cats at the clinic I worked at that had this condition and they seemed to do well. I’m loving that jumping now is no longer an issue — sweet brave Sophie!

    Yay, Sophie! That was a very impressive jump. She is such a cutie too! Our cat Samantha had some issues for a while, she limped a bit and she couldn’t jump at all. The vet never found anything wrong with her. She was on pain pills until the limp went away and the only other thing we did was joint supplements. For months she never jumped, and then all of the sudden one day, she did, all the way up to the kitchen counter! It’s such a joy to see them accomplish something like that.

    Of course, I had to jump down the wormhole to find out what CH is. Animals never cease to amaze me, they can overcome so many obstacles. And kudos for you and your husband for working with Sophie in helping her develop her skills, and giving her a safe place to do so.

    Also, I just have to tell you…I have a Sampson and Delilah too. 🙂
