An animal shelter near Breinigsville in Lehigh County reports that someone drove all the way from Pittsburgh—about 280 miles—to adopt a cat that has a disability.
The Sanctuary at Haafsville posted on its Facebook page that a blonde cat named Heather found a new home Sunday. Heather wobbles when she walks because of a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia. The disorder is found in cats and dogs born with a cerebellum that is not completely developed.
The condition doesn't worsen and most animals learn to compensate and live a normal lifespan, according to the website Life with CH Cats.
