Dipstick -- CEREBELLAR HYPOPLASIA (MILD)

Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet"


Black DSH Kitten born ~3/17/19 with MILD Cerebellar Hypoplasia for ADOPTION

 ******DIPSTICK is fostered in the SACRAMENTO AREA******* Dipstick would be a great therapy cat.  His adoption fee is waived if he finds a home with a person who shares a similar condition.

 Meet the newest member of our CATS OF HAZZARD team -- DIPSTICK.  You can follow all of our special needs kitties on Instagram @catsofhazzard

Dipstick or "Dippy" as he is affectionately called by his foster family was born around 3/17/2019.  He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, FIV/FeLv negative and is free of parasites.

He was born with a condition called CEREBELLAR HYPOPLASIA and it makes him a little clumsy.  He has a VERY mild, almost un-noticeable form where his rear end just has a little sashay.  His mom was likely exposed to a virus when pregnant that caused his cerebellum -- the part of the brain that controls coordination -- to be a little damaged. He wants you to know that his cognition was not at all affected and he is just as smart as neurotypical cats! Although the mechanism of injury is different, in humans the most common similar condition is cerebral palsy.  

He is not contagious.  He is not in pain.  He will have a normal lifespan.  He will not require any more medical care than a neurotypical cat.  He is simply a little clumsy.  Funny thing is, he doesn't know and he most certainly does not care.  

He does need to be indoor only (unless on a leash) because his lack of coordination would make it difficult to escape predators or cars. 

Dippy has NO FEAR.  He is not scared of people.  He is not scared of new situations. He is not scared of dogs.... even chihuahuas who growl at him (you know, the kind of chihuahua that makes people not like chihuahuas).  He also climbs!

He would be GREAT with kids (TOUCH ME!  PET ME PLEASE!). He would be great with dogs, other cats... you name it.  He'd probably even be good with bunnies (Can they teach him binkies?)  He would probably do well if taught to walk on a leash and would be a great candidate to train for therapy work.  

Dippy is littertrained and rides quite well in the car.  He purrs a LOT.  He kneads.  He even likes to suckle on a fleece blanket. 

To adopt Dipstick, send a detailed email to beourpet@gmail.com

Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters. We offer rebates of adoption fees after completion of obedience classes and CGC titles. 

Also, ask us about our seniors for seniors program, where we adopt animals 5 years or older to qualified homes with a $5 donation as an adoption fee. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and given any additional treatments (dental work, bloodwork etc) as recommended by our vet. Some of our senior animals have sponsorships for their food/vet care/medicine for the rest of their life at our vet in Pittsburg, CA (94565)

 Adoptions to veterans of the US Armed Services are ALWAYS free to thank you for your service.  Other retired public servants, please let us know what career you retired from and we can let you know if we offer any discounts for your adoption

Please send an email to the Umbrella Of Hope Animal Director with any inquiries at beourpet@gmail.com. Detailed emails will be answered first.  

We thank Maddie's Fund for their sponsorship, Well Pet Vet Clinic for providing most of our veterinary services, Lovely Grooming for our grooming needs, and Delta Dog Camp for training. We thank Memoirs of a Dog and Share the Joy Photography for the beautiful portraits of many of our animals and a special thanks to volunteer photographers Barbara, Kristy, Christine and Natalie.  Please support these businesses for supporting rescue!
