Author’s Note: Many thanks to Charlie’s parents for letting me ask questions.
I have to ask, how are Charlie & Queso getting along?
She still isn’t a big fan, but she likes to torment him now. Hahahaha. She’ll chase him through the house.
Is she currently on any medications or doing therapy?
She doesn’t need any medication or therapy as of right now, she might in the future…but we can’t be sure.
Have you had to make any changes since she joined the family?
We haven’t really had to change a whole lot in the house for her. We bought bowls that she can eat from, some were too high for her to get into. The litter box was moved from the basement to the main floor for her (for obvious reasons, haha). We also block off the basement stairs just to make sure she won’t get to them.
What is her favorite thing to do?
This is a tough one. I would have to say her favorite thing to do is sleep on the couch. Since she can’t get up on the furniture on her own, we put her up with us for couch time…she loves it. A close second would be terrorizing her cat brother Duncan. Haha.
What would you like to say about CH cats?
CH kitties are amazing little creatures. They’re determined. They’re fierce. And they’re lovable. They deserve a chance at life too, so many get out to sleep just because of their condition. It’s sad. Depending on when the CH kitten is adopted, it might be rough at first. We got Charlie when she was a week old. We had to feed her every few hours and bathe her daily, multiple times some days. The litter training was rough. They need a lot of time and patience, but it all pays off.
I hope this helps get the attention on to CH babies, they have so much love to give, they just need to be given the chance.
