A New Year

With the new year comes new hope that our goal for education will become a reality.  Elise Murphy have graciously accepted our request to help with the website as well as designing a flyer for handing out to rescue groups, shelters, vets offices and anyone who shows interest in CH kitties.

If you are as passionate about CH cats as we are and have the privilege of having one in your family, please consider taking your kitty to your local pet store. If it is anything like my experience, people will stop and ask questions.  This would be a perfect time to hand out the flyer and help those CH kitties waiting for homes get adopted.

Most people are unaware of this condition. As one friend of mine said, she would have been a lot more hesitant to adopt a cat with a neurological condition had she not have met my CH cat JillyBean.  This is part of the education process.

People are afraid of adopting a kitty that is less than perfect.  I feel JillyBean is perfect, just a little clumsy.  Who is to say what defines perfect anyway.

So as I enter the new year, the key to our success is “Education, Education, Education”!

Happy New Year
Lisa, JillyBean and family.

  1. I just adopted a CH kitten… A ColorPoint shorthair. I volunteer at an animal rescue, and the adoption coordinator for the cats told me they had a bunch of kittens in. I took my boyfriend up to look at kittens, and I came home with my special girl Shayna! She is named after Shane Victorino because he also slides a lot! I initially was going to foster but I wasn’t even 24 hours in when I decided I had to keep her.
    Your idea of taking her to a pet store in order to educate people is an amazing idea! I think I will do that this weekend! Every time I tell someone about her, they have never heard of this condition. I can’t imagine that had she been born somewhere else, she may have been … Well, You know…
    Her older sister, not litter mate, has stomatitis, I know what I mean disease that causes her immune system to attack her teeth. Over a period of six months all of her teeth had to be taken out, but she is another amazing and loving cat! It seem special needs or my thing, and I would love to educate anyone I can! I may take them both to the pet store! Do you have pamphlets that can be handed out?
