Today a friend that is a vet and I decided to take a walk through the cemetary. as its sooo goergous and well taken care of and leads right to the lake as we were heading there we found 3 kittens :( we managed to capture them, my friend took 2 home the two females one was all grey with a white patch the other was all white with a grey patch . and I have the little male here with me, Not sure if were keeping him or not but hubby says will deal with it when he gets home , this little one is black and white, my friend who was with me and was checking them out for fleas ect thinks that the one i have has cerebellar hypoplasia which basically means something didnt develope properly in its brain so its motor skills arent the best as its really wobbly shere about 8 weeks old one of the other kittens was sorta like this one for walking just not as bad.I thought id share a pic of the little i have. its kinda cute i emailed hubby about it he didnt yell or scream supringly and just said wed deal with it when he got home.Ill post videos later of how he walks poor thing is sooo cute.
I havent decided what to name it or anything i just been calling it kitty. I just sent hubby this picture to see what he says about it hehe

Aww, the sweet little boy. I'm sure you know this, but for anyone else reading who may rescue a kitten, be sure to keep him separate from the others until he has been tested for disease.

Thank goodness you and your friend were out there, it just kills me that people can dump kittens like that. They'll get theirs some day.

we named him zombie :) unless we think of something else later on. This came about as i wanted something that went with cemetary as thats where he was found. and hubby at first thought ceme-terry and use terry as short. but it just didnt work after a lot of thinking we came up with zombie ^_^ the first question i ever asked my husband was, what would u do if zombies took over the world? so it suited him sooo well, hubbys been emailing me questions all day i think hes starting to cave and we may keep him ^_^

Aw congrats!! It's cute how he *erm* walks. Will this get better with help or growth? Or will he need stabilizing meds (if they exist?) The name is apt since he came from a cemetery and walks like that!! lol

my hubby offically caved tonight n said he can stay on certain conditions:dream: but we do plan to choose a name when hubby gets back its just zombie for now :) he wont get any better or any worst its the same thing as if a humain has it so there is no stabilizing medication. but they can live full and happy lives, just they fall more often like a new born kitten learning to walk and they twitch and shake when there happy or purring :dream: Id love to find a name that means warrior or champion or second chance but will see if hubby is up for it. suggestions for names are welcome :)

I think the name is great. If it wasn't for fate u would never of found him and him wouldn't have survived long out there. I don't want to feel bad for him as long as he's not in pain...because he doesn't know there's anything wrong with him. He's just a lucky cat who has caring people to look after him now. <3 I believe in carma and a lot of good is coming to u and urs. <3

How about Anaru, that means warrior. And given your habit of nicknames you could call him Ru for short. :)

I agree he needs a strong positive name.

As he gets bigger elevating water and food dishes will help he eat and drink safely. You might want to make the water bowl very flat for now. The danger I am thinking of is if he falls into the water bowl.

Can he get into his litter box okay? Now that he's been vetted...when will you start the introductions? Seems the Universe is determined to keep you as a 3 cat family! :)

:D I agree!! Just because Philly didn't work out. . . Little Warrior could teach your Alyson a thing or two about compassion for all creatures regradless of "disability". I think it's meant to be.
