A kitty named Pepino has a remarkable story to tell — being very wobbly never stops him from loving life.
He is clumsy and can’t walk in a straight line, but this kitty is always happy and doesn’t want people to feel sorry for him.
When Pepino was born, he was rejected by his cat mother. He was promptly taken to the VCA Cromwell Animal Hospital where he was given oxygen to help him breathe. After many hours of intensive care, the little guy was brought back from the brink.
He wasn’t out of the woods yet, so one of the staff members took him home to foster so they could continue to care for him around-the-clock. For many weeks, they weren’t sure if he would survive so they didn’t name him. His foster mom called him “Mousey” as he looked like a tiny mouse.
As Pepino grew bigger, they noticed that he had trouble walking and would fall every time he tried to stand up. The kitten was born with Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH), a condition that impedes his motor skills.
