Recently, we shared the story of Whirlwind Natalie, a beautiful blind cat from Minnesota born with Cerebellar hypoplasia(CH). Due to CH, Natalie is very wobbly with impaired coordination. Otherwise, the condition causes no pain, and cats with CH may enjoy life like any other cat provided their humans are willing to provide custom accommodations.
In Natalie’s case, she has adapted amazingly well and loves playing and snuggling like any other cat. She may be wobbly but manages to get around fine in a soft, carpeted environment. Watching Whirlwind Natalie in action, you can see she’s having a great time and doesn’t let anything stop her.
Now, we are thrilled to see that Whirlwind Natalie has found a loving forever home! Thus, Natalie and her buddy Snapple, the disabled ‘Tux on Wheels,’ found homes shortly after sharing their stories. Purrhaps, it’s because someone like you shared their story?

Whirlwind Natalie Finds a Furever Home
In late February, Whirlwind Natalie’s foster momma Kris Kaiser shared exciting news.
“Today is my gotcha day! I go home with my new family later today! They’ve been working on getting their home setup to be safe and comfortable for me. They built me a feeding station and put my name in it! 💕 I will have two kitty friends to get to know, Sam Sam and Binxie. Binxie is my age and wobbly just like me! Okay maybe a little less wobbly and she can also see but I think one day we will be best friends.”
She’s going to live with a family where another wobbly kitty named Binxie lives, a dog, and kids who will love playing with her. Congratulations to Natalie, her furry siblings, and her human family!
Below, you can see Natalie is adjusting well to her new furry siblings.
“It’s been a great day. Did all the things in my new house, including hang out with my new four legged dog brother. He’s not too bad, he mostly just lets me do my thing. As long as I can still soak up all those plays and snuggles I’m good.”
“Having “stare” offs with my new CH sister Binxie.”
From the looks of it, Natalie loves snuggling and having long conversations with her new Cat Dad.

Now the family will continue to share Whirlwind Natalie’s story on Instagram. Meanwhile, Kaiser will continue to care for cats with CH, such as Calvin, Daisy and Rosie, three tuxedo cats called “The Tippy Tuxies.”
