Lips Tricks: How to take care of a deaf cat
Cats are awesome! But what about a disabled cat? A disabled cat is a cat and thus still awesome! There are a few things you do differently around a deaf cat but for the most part they’re like all other cats. Sometimes they respond to you, sometimes they won’t, and a cat does what a cat does. The following are some characteristics of a deaf cat.
- Deaf cats often have white fur. Grace has a white belly.
- Their deafness doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re sick. They’re just deaf.
- Their meow is loud.
- They may not exactly pronounce “meow” in the traditional American Cat dialect.
- I think my cat may be French according to this chart.
- Don’t worry if they are hungry, they will let you know.
- Ugh, shut up, cat. I’m feeding you right now. Can’t you see this.
- Come up with a hand motion that you only do when you feed them.
- If they want cuddles, they will also let you know.
- Cats have whiskers which is their sixth sense. So a deaf cat has five senses so don’t get all self-righteous, human.
- Don’t pet a deaf cat when they can’t see you.
- Don’t spook them.
- Instead, wave a hand in front of their whiskers so they know it’s you.
- Then proceed to pet your cat and give them all the love.
- AND PERHAPS BEST OF ALL you can use the vacuum whenever you need to. They can’t hear the vacuum — most cats are scared of such a monster. The deaf cat, if they notice the vacuum at all, will stare at it wondering what is this thing. You have no excuse for a dirty house.
12. And lastly, deaf cats like selfies. They are technologically proficient.
Deaf cats are the future.
