Mojo Jojo is our miracle kitty! He and his 2 sisters were rescued from the city shelter where they were about to be euthanized. Mojo’s legs were completely stiff and he was unable to walk at all and we quickly realized that he has a condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. We have a lot of experience with caring for cats with this condition so we immediately knew we had to rescue him. Cerebellar hypoplasia (CH) is a neurological condition where the brain does not develop properly and it causes cats to be wobbly when they walk and sometimes lose balance. In Mojo Jojo’s case, he was extremely severe as he was unable to walk at all. We knew we had our work cut out for us but were ready for the challenge. For the first couple of weeks we worked with Mojo providing physical therapy and stimulation to try to get him to sit, crawl or even walk. He became fast friends with one of our nursery residents, Cupid, who really helped with his physical therapy, so much so that one day he decided he was done with laying around and started walking, much to the surprise, shock and delight of all of his caregivers. Now he even runs away from us … because he can! He is able to use the litter box and even climbs now, and he has an adorable little wobble when he walks. He loves to snuggle, wrestle and play with his BFF, Cupid, so we would love to see these two boys get adopted together, especially as we strongly believe that Cupid really helped with Mojo’s recovery. They are a purrfect pairing.
