Twerk is a very special kitten besides being cute and playful as all kittens are. The kitten was brought to the East End shelter of the Humane Animal Rescue because her previous owner was moving.
The three months old kitty suffers from Cerebellar Hypoplasia, a neurological disorder that results in involuntary movements and shakes. Twerk seems to be a really happy kitty and her disability doesn’t seem to bother her at all. She is purring, dancing and playing like any other normal cat.
Cerebellar hypoplasia occurs when parts of the cerebellum are not completely developed. This condition can occur due to intrinsic (genetic) causes, or due to extrinsic causes like infections, toxins or nutritional deficiencies. Symptoms are visible when kittens begin to stand and walk, around six weeks of age.
Twerk’s rescuers posted on social media an amazing video and her unique talents. The video helped Twerk to find her forever loving home!
