In June, 2015 Itty Bitty Kitty Committee (Charleston, West Virginia) took in a tiny kitten with uncontrollable tremors. She was rescued from someone who was known for their drug habit. "Camie was shaking and was fighting for her life."

"We took her to one of our vets where they began to treat her with fluids and different medications." But the tremors were not getting better. Her prognosis was not good.

The vet wasn't sure if they would be able to save the kitten, but the rescue group knew they had to keep trying. "We transferred her to the emergency clinic for the weekend. She remained on fluids, and more blood work done and was monitored closely. But, despite their efforts the tremors were not going away," the rescue group said.

They concluded that Camie was more than likely a CH (Cerebral Hypoplasia) kitty and put her on a mixture of IV fluids and vitamins to boost her strength and health.

They hand fed her every 2 to 3 hours. "Although she still shook she was getting stronger, had a great appetite and loved to play."

She acted like any other kitten her age despite the tremors, and even learned to use the litter box. Camie discovered that her tail and feet make great toys.

Camie was taken off of the IV. She started eating out of a bowl and was trying to drink on her own. With a lot of love and hard work, she was finally ready for her forever loving home.

"Camie found a great home with a family who was ready to take on a kitty with CH."

A month after her adoption, the little calico girl surprised everyone with her progress. "The tremors were getting better! We couldn't believe it, but every day she shook a little less."

Camie running around at the rescue center. It's hard to believe that this is the same kitten that could barely lift her head.

Two months after moving into her forever home, her shaking was gone for good!
