Perhaps I worry too much as a parent, not all together uncommon for those of us with CKS kittens. Dr. Mebalz, however, does console me with his belief that there is hope for the future.

"CKS is so prevalent we are not sure what exactly to do. Our early findings show symptoms seem to lessen after about 10 to 12 months for many CKS kittens," he said. "Of course, there are always relapses and flare-ups. In the meantime I recommend all family members get involved with support groups like KA Kittens Anonymous. Remember, the first step is always admit you are powerless."

Yes, so true. Powerless over a crazed and spastic kitten, I readily admit. For now, I'll learn to adapt and live with CKS. Time is on my side ... and wearing earmuffs on the couch isn't so bad.

I'm new to being a single parent and my kitte. RJ seems to be doing just about the same as yours. Hes just runs and plays but he doesn't bite. Hes the only child so I wonder if he's just lonely....any way is cks realy or were you just joking. Haha

LOL!! I MUST say that this CRACKED me up!! Yes, it is VERY true! HOWEVER...this thing does NOT go away! My beloved cat, Kallie (who I had to help move on to her Eternal Life just a few days ago, almost 18 years old, massive amount of tumors in her chest around her heart :(, she was an awesome wonderful cat), in her older age would go sprinting and running around - making "brrrrtt!" sounds, and flying around the house like a freak as well! She would stop, look around the room in a "freakish way" and tear off again, bouncing off anything she could and whacking things (including other cats) in the process! I knew that cat would live a long time! She was a stray & found me as a tiny kitten - you could see the love in her eyes. beautiful long-haired tortoise shell calico...I miss her :'(
