Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia, Brain Disorder That Causes Cats to Walk Like Drunken Sailors

Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia is a neurological condition that causes a cat to have coordination and balance problems, often resulting in a “drunken sailor” walk. It is caused by underdevelopment of the cat’s cerebellum during the animal’s development in the womb. Despite their impairments, cats with the condition still make good companions, and have a devoted following amongst owners who find the cats and their wobbly gait to be very endearing. For more on the condition see the blog Life with CH Cats.
