Gracie and Parker

Kita is fostering two kittens who have cerebellar hypoplasia: their cerebella didn't form properly so they have co-ordination problems. They can't walk very far without falling over but they're not too badly affected. They can eat on their own, though they make a mess; they can use the litter-tray OK, ditto. They like to do the normal kitten stuff, they love chasing feather toys and each other, and they're adorable. It doesn't get any worse (or better) with age so they'll probably live to a normal lifespan, unless they hurt themselves badly.
