White the Beautiful Deaf Kitty

"I am shy!" - White the kitty :)

White the snow white kitty is hard of hearing. She was born with blue and hazel eyes. Though not all odd-eyed white cats are deaf, White is one of them.

White was adopted by Lu who uses her hands as the prime means of communication. By using body language, White knows right away if Lu calls her to come over.

White has much sharper vision than hearing cats. Because of her deafness, she has adjusted herself to the environment. She is very sensitive to vibrations. When Lu enters the room where White is asleep, she often taps the floor to let her know that she is coming in, so that she will not startle her baby girl.

White loves to be petted. She often walks up to Lu for love and attention. A sense of touch provides smoothingness to many deaf cats.

Even though White cannot hear, she knows when you are talking through vibration. To her, talking is like purring rather than a noise. She enjoys anything that creates similar vibration such as a vacuum cleaner and she’d sit on it when it’s on while many other cats would run away from it.

White is strictly an indoor cat but she does not miss the great outdoors by sitting by the window, watching her daily bird TV.

The little snow white is just like any other cats when it comes to play. She loves her toys, cardboard boxes, and bottle caps. Even though she cannot hear, she never feels any different and is perhaps more affectionate because of her love of being petted.

White’s world may be quiet, but it is full of colors, vibrance, touch and smell. To Lu, there is nothing cuter than seeing White lazing on her bed, snoozing away.

    AAWW!!! She's so pretty! We rescued a white cat and named him Dirty Cat because he was always coming over with oil spots on his neck and back. We already had two other cats and a dog and couldn't take him in so we gave him to a friend and split the cost of his vet bills to get his shots and get fixed. I miss that kitty; he was sssooooo sweet! He loved to curl up on your lap outside and go to sleep.

    how sweet!

  5. Carol says:

    Love this kitty – I had a white cat with beautiful blue eyes, and she was deaf. I communicated with her similarly – sometimes she would lose me in the house where we lived, and she'd stand in the den and cry. I'd stomp my foot on the floor, and she could tell where I was and would come running. She was VERY vocal, too!

  31. Abbey says:

    She is gorgeous, wow, such a beautiful cat. I think she's the perfect match to my cat, Jemmi. He has blue and hazel eyes like your cat too. He is white with dark tabby spots on him, one covering the side of his face with the hazel eye. He also has a broken tail and asthma, but he is the sweetest and most affectionate cat. He is so lovely, just like your pretty kitty.

    You are very lucky to have her.

  32. pumbie says:

  49. Enid says:

    She looks a lot like my "Miss Bunny" who was all white and deaf. Miss Bunny had almost colorless eyes that turned a very pale yellow as she got older. She also as polydactyl on all 4 paws.

    She understood sign language I made up for communicating with her.

    She could smell a package of Twinkies being opened across an entire house.

    She lived to be almost 15.

    WHite is so so purrfect. I placed a white kitty deaf with 1 blue, 1 green colored eye. I have 2 sisters who are deaf so when I see a cat that is deaf and needs a home, I try to help place that kitty with the right person who will have the patience and understanding for a wonderful kitty like White! Happy to know this kitty has a forever home with forever love.
