Neko has a neurological disorder called Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia, which occurs when a cat's brain does not develop properly in the womb. It is a congenital condition that is present at birth.
The cerebellum is the part of a cat's brain responsible for coordination, spatial awareness, and fine motor skills. Because of this disorder, Neko is limited in movement. Climbing is very difficult for him and will cause him to tip over.
Everything else about Neko is absolutely perfect. He eats, drinks, and uses the litter box as normal. Please ask to speak with our health care coordinator about this condition.
Neko has tested negative for FELV & FIV (AIDS) and is vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $125.00.
UPDATE: Love is in the air at the shelter! Today, we have a sweet story to tell you and a plea for you to help us find a forever home for two love birds.
Olivet (https://www.petfinder.com/cat/olivet-42244563/mn/north-saint-paul/caring-for-cats-inc-mn107/), a nearly three-year-old brown tabby came to us from Georgia in the summer of 2018.
Right now, she has been in the shelter longer than any other kitty. She's been hard to place for a few reasons.
First, she has food allergies -- BAD food allergies. She can only have Restricted Hydrolyzed Protein HP Diet Food which is more expensive than regular food. (On a brighter note, her adoptive family will save money on treats and other types of wet foods she can't eat.)
Next, she's a bit of a diva. We haven't found another cat that she likes ...until now.
In walks Neko, A handsome Seal-Point Siamese boy. As soon as she met him, Olivet walked up and rubbed against him. What? Our diva is attracted to this exotic male! We couldn't believe our eyes.
It's funny that Olivet would pick Neko, of all of the kitties in the shelter. Neko is also a special needs kitty and we think it might be a case of "opposites attract."
You see, Olivet is FULL of energy! She loves to climb as high up as she can and would walk on the ceiling if she could. She loves to run around with the cat zoomies, look out windows, and play. (Note: a home without valuable knick-knacks is ideal.) Just think of Olivet as a 2-year-old with lots of energy.
Neko calms down Olivet and that is important. During the short time he's been with us, we've discovered that Olivet absolutely LOVES Neko. She not only rubs up against him, but she also gives him kisses. Recently, Olivet came back from the vet, and the first thing she did was go over to Neko, rub up ggainst him, and plant a kiss.
We always knew that Olivet was a crazy character and will give the right family hours of joy. She truly loves people and seeks out attention every chance she gets.
Now we see that this quiet, exotic gentleman Neko is the perfect match. He is the calming force in her diva life.
We are hoping to find a home that will permanently foster both of these special needs kitties. In a permanent foster home, Caring for Cats pays for the food and vet bills.
The perfect foster home would have no other pets. Not having valuable knick-knacks would be a bonus, but not required.
Send a message in reply to this posting if you think you might be a good fit OR please share this information with a friend who you think would be a good home.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if this love story had a happy ending?
