There is no treatment for cerebellar hypoplasia. While this condition is permanent, the symptoms should not worsen and affected cats will have a normal life span.
Your cat will be developmentally disabled, so it will not be able to make decisions to protect itself as other cats are able to. You will need to restrict your cat's activity and movement so as to prevent injuries and road accidents. Climbing, falling, or freedom of movement, all of the normal things that cats do, will need to be taken into consideration with your cat.
