Ghost the Deaf Cat

Posted Mar 27, 2015

I obtained Ghost from birth from my neighbor. He had been born under my neighbor's house, and his siblings had all died from some sort of sickness. He is a pure white, short haired male. He is very sweet, and enjoys being petted. He is very picky about food, and will only eat the dry cat food. He won't eat table food or the wet cat food. We didn't realize he was deaf until he was almost a year old. We dropped something loud behind him, and he didn't react. He also has a very strange, loud meow. We think now it is because he cannot hear himself. I have heard since that many pure white cats are deaf due to a gene that is missing. He is a father to a female cat who is also completely white and deaf. He takes good care of her, grooming her and making sure she is safe.
