Gabby’s a girl with a wobble. The official term for her condition is Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia, or CH for short, and it’s a neurological condition that results in walking and balance problems. This condition doesn’t get worse, it’s just something she was born with, and despite being unable to walk normally she’s healthy and can climb any cat tree out there!
To help strengthen Gabby’s back legs, her foster mom Becky does physiotherapy with her daily and has seen a vast improvement in her mobility. Due to her intensive regime, Gabby’s now able to support herself and walk a few steps without being aided. Yah Gabby!
We estimate it will cost $2,000 to provide Gabby with the best possible chance at a normal life. This will pay for a specialized diet, a harness to help her get around, acupuncture treatments and all her medical expenses. Special needs cats like Gabby have increased medical costs and, as a volunteer-driven non-profit, it’s a real challenge to find extra funds.
Medical costs account for approximately 50% of VOKRA’s budget. All extra funds raised will go directly towards helping other special needs cats like Gabby.
