I always have lots of quiet company in the kitchen. Tonight Sierra & Ed joined me while I made a pot of Sleepy Tyme Tea & toast. Cats are like people that way; they like to hang out where the action and the food is. At least mine do.
It helps that there are lots of cozy spots for them.
Mr. Ed is deaf and I find that he sits and stares at me often. What must it be like to not hear a sound? I expect it is very isolating so I try to communicate with him with my eyes. If I have his attention and I slowly blink my eyes he will do it back to me. It makes me feel that we are connecting.
Deaf cats meow rarely or not at all. Ed has meowed twice in two years and both times he was upset because he was about to have his nails clipped. He is now used to it and although he doesn't like it, he quietly co-operates. He sleeps more soundly than the others.
I also am very careful not to startle him by walking up to him quickly. He needs to see me first before I touch him.
Deaf cats have an extreme need for high places. Ed is always up looking down.
There you have it...a little on deaf cats.
