This wobbly foster cat first entered Micky’s life when she decided to care for him.
Micky has fostered numerous kittens and puppies over the years, and she immediately realized that there was something very special about Grasshopper.
Looks like Grasshopper was born with cerebellar ɪᴍᴘᴀɪʀᴍᴇɴᴛ. This condition affects the part of the brain that controls fine motor skills, balance, and coordination, commonly known as swaying cat syndrome.
This is why Grasshopper wobbles when walking but it doesn’t stop anything as he enjoys life to the fullest, all is perfectly normal to him. And as Mickey says, he always has happy feet!
Cats born with this condition can lead a perfectly healthy natural life.
It didn’t take long for the family to become attached to this adorable kitten, even the family dog, Hippo, immediately attached to this kitten.
He’s an inseparable couple and spends a lot of time cuddling and playing together.
Grasshopper is a very curious kitten and likes to keep himself busy. He loves to spin and loves to chase other animals in the house and explore the backyard.
When it’s time to rest, he likes to relax in a cardboard box or take a nap with one of the other foster kittens.
As well as his attachment to Hippo, he enjoys hanging out with Micky’s daughter and likewise, she also becomes very fond of him.
His crazy antics are fun for everyone and the more excited he gets, the more wobbly he becomes.
As time went on, the family realized that it would be difficult to give up this wandering kitten, so they decided to adopt him and give him a permanent home.
He loves to help Micky with all the kittens and puppies he is fostering, and usually has one special one he will protect but it is Hippo that has the biggest place in his heart.
As Micky puts it: “Food, Hippo and hugs are his love language, oh, and napping in the middle of the stairs trying to trip everyone up!”
With the help of Micky, Hippo and the rest of the family, Grasshopper is living his best life !
