Disabled cats might require a little extra care or consideration when it comes to setting up your home but they have plenty of love to give. In fact, cats are surprisingly adaptable and are often more than capable of coping with their physical impairments, allowing them to enjoy a good quality of life.
While some cats are born with a disability, others become disabled as the result of an accident, disease or even the effects of old age. More common types of disability include blind cats, deaf cats, three-legged cats and ‘wobbly cats’ with cerebellar hypoplasia.
