We are exited to announce that Sage is spending the first day in what’s going be her forever home. She was adopted by a wonderful couple and the best thing about it is that she will get to see her brother Phoenix (now Fenix) as their parents happen to be close friends. How exiting is that we are going to see them grow together!
Shortly after we rescued them, both were diagnosed with Cerebellar hypoplasia, a disorder found in cats and dogs in which the cerebellum is not completely mature at birth. It causes jerky movements, tremors and generally uncoordinated motion specially when they are exited.
This disease is caused by feline parvovirus (while in utero), and that can also be caused by malnutrition, poisoning, injury or general accidents during development in the fetus. The good news is that they should have a normal life span and will learn how to coordinate their movements better. There is something special about Fenix and Sage. They remind us that life is so fragile and beautiful and no matter of imperfections that we might have or problems that we need to overcome it’s still a miracle to be alive.
