>>We have a "special needs" kit also. Badger was abandoned by her mama (a very young first time mama). When she removed her from the rest of the litter we think she was accidentaly a bit rough and gave her a partial lobotomy. Badger has some coordination problems and can't follow moving objects to the right. We have to make sure she doesn't have to walk on slick floors as her right foot will slide out from under her. She also seems to have I guess a sensory overload when she gets petted. Instead of enjoying it she will bite and smack at the hand that is trying to pet her, purring madly up a storm. She wants the affection but doesn't appear to understand how to react to it normally.

Good for Badger that she has people who understand her unique needs! Funny, but your description of the sensory overload reminds me of my son. He has an autism spectrum disorder and has sensory issues. Our furbabies are so messed up it seems we're constantly finding a problem we hadnt noticed before...just 2 days ago, we realized that the cat who was abused and had tail damage also has a deformity in it. I bet it's like that for you with Badger.-- Jennifer
