CH Kitties Sophie from Kitty Cat Chronicles

This week we spotlight CH Kitties with the help of Sophie from Kitty Cat Chronicles. Sophie is a proud citizen of…… the USA! Yes, a little outside our ‘international’ remit and this is for two reasons. First, her mum Emily was one of the gracious sponsors of our auction for Bootsie in 2015, for which we are grateful, and secondly Sophie is not just ‘any old extraordinary cat’ she has Cerebellar Hypoplasia, which is known as CH for short!

  • So let us introduce you to Sophie who like many CH cats is known as a ‘wobbly’ cat. Welcome Sophie…..

Where in the world do you wobble?

I wobble all around the state of Georgia, USA. While I am an indoor kitty, I get to go out on all kinds of cool adventures all over the place to show off my wobble – like camping, canoeing, hiking, etc. I’m not the only wobbly kitty around though – I know lots of them, all over the world. I have wobbly furiends in the UK and Canada too!

What is your favourite part of creating your wobbly (CH) world?

I’d have to say that my favorite part about the wobbly world I’m a part of is getting to meet so many other specially-featured animals like me. Through the #WobblyWednesday hashtag party I host every week, I have met SO many awesome kitties (and doggies too!) all over the world who have cerebellar hypoplasia (wobbly kitty syndrome) and other conditions as well (such as missing limbs, neurological injuries/damage, etc.).

It warms my heart every week to see my specially-featured furiends overcoming obstacles and facing life head-on with spunk, tenacity, and joy despite the curve balls life has thrown at them. Humans could learn a lot from us, really.

What kind of people have you discovered have wobbly kitties?

The kind with big hearts who are willing to overlook an imperfection and see that wobbly kitties have so much love to give and big lives to live! (Although my mom and dad say that I am perfect 😉

Sophie laid down

What are the joys and challenges of being a wobbly kitty with blogging abilities?

The biggest joy of being a wobbly kitty that blogs besides making wonderful furiends is that I am able to spread the word and raise awareness for CH. Many times, people incorrectly assume that wobbly kitties can’t live a normal and happy life, so they get put down. My mission is to squash that belief and show the world that we wobblies are super fun and extra lovable! As for challenges, well, the only one I can think of is not having enough time to do everything I’d like to do.

Will you suggest some of your wobble nation posts for our readers to discover more about you and CH Kitties?

Sophie and her mum are on Facebook, and Instagram so say hello for a warm wobbly cat welcome!

We recommend you read a little about CH and the wobble nation, help us to spread the worldwide word about the massive positives of Cerebellar Hypoplasia kitties. These cats, like Sophie, are amazing and awesome.

    She is very pretty. I had no idea this existed. Other than motor skills, does it impact anything else? lifespan?

      Sherri – CH only affects motor skills. Lifespan is not affected, and it doesn’t get better or worse with time, though a cat with CH can learn to compensate for their CH in different ways. Check out the first post link that Miranda Kitten shared in our interview – it’s an article we wrote about what CH is with more details and info. Feel free to contact us too with any other questions you may have! 🙂

    Sophie is one of my heroes! I always try to urge humans to offer their kitties some variety via leash training, etc. – but Sophie does it while having CH, which proves that kitties really do have no limits.

    Being a dog trainer, I’m honestly not all that familiar with kitty syndromes, and this was a new one for me. I definitely would like to learn more about it! Miss Sophie has the MOST amazing eyes I remember seeing in a kitty. She is absolutely gorgeous! Since my dog Rugby James has special emotional needs, I appreciate so very much your heart to make it work…and to get the word out in educating and supporting other CH pet parents. Kudos!! Nice post!

    I met a few cats at a clinic I worked at years ago with CH. They seemed to do quite well and their owners managed the condition so it’s great you’re creating awareness so these cats are understood!

    Such a great example of how ‘wobbly’ does not mean restricted (in any way). I can’t imagine Ricky in a canoe! Loved this post.

    Sophie is quite the little adventurer! I think it is wonderful how she lives such a rich and fulfilling life. It is making me rethink my cat’s status as a homebody.

    I know someone locally who adopted a wobbly kitty (with CH). Sweetest thing ever. (She calls him Martini; shaken, not stirred.) ?

    Sophie is BEAUTIFUL! Great to learn more about her and her mama!

    Sophie is a really special, specially-abled kitty. I love that she lives life with such gusto & adventure, and encourages other Wobbly cats to do the same. Kudos to you, and your mom, Sophie!
