Rupert Wobblepants is a very special kitten that just wobbled into his new home. “He has a condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. Its caused by a virus that infected his mother while she was pregnant, and it causes the cerebellum part of the brain to not develop properly. This causes the affected kittens to be clumsier than usual, but it causes them no pain. He also has a congenital heart defect, which we are currently in the process of treating,” said the human mom.
Rupert Wobblepants meets Murkin the dog who is a rescue and has fostered many kittens who are just like him (rescues given a second chance):
“Wobblepants finally gets to meet Murkin! The first time he saw him, he was not scared at all! He immediately wanted to play.”
