From @orangeisthenewblackandtan: “Volume up! 🔊⬆️❗️ Hi friends, it’s Phin! Do you want to know my definition of bliss? It’s getting covered in giant piles of orange feathers! As soon as I see that bag of feathers, I can’t help but beg to play with them, and as soon as they come out of the bag, I can’t help but rev up my purr motor. 😻 You may notice my nose is orange in the zoomed in shot in the middle of the video — I got the tiniest piece of feather stuck there for a minute, and it was the #bestthingever! 😸
For those new friends who don’t know Phin very well yet, he has a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia. This means that the part of his brain that coordinates movement never fully developed. He’s not in any pain, and he won’t get worse over time, though there also aren’t any treatments that would help him. He had a difficult time getting enough food in his system as a kitten, experiencing Fading kitten syndrome, but his foster mom, @fosterkittys , nurtured him with a lot of love and care, and he was able to grow into the wonderful cat he is now. 😻 Phin adapts to his condition by walking with his paws a bit wider, leaning against the wall for support, and using claws to climb up and down things. Phin is a very happy kitty who loves playing with his siblings (Tyrion the cat, and Holly the Airedale Terrier), eating meals and treats, and cuddling with his parents. 😻” #catsofinstagram
