This dear little kitten came to us earlier than expected. Her mum was hit by a car when she was barely 4 weeks old, so we had to take her. My Mum was awake every 4 hours to feed her.
As she got older we saw she had 1 gold eye and 1 blue eye. She was one of the cutest little kittens we have ever owned.
We soon began to notice that she wasn’t coming to us when we called her or reacting to loud noises. Tinkerbell was about 8 weeks old when we realised that our special little kitten was even more special because she was deaf. That just increased our love for her.
I decided to tell this story in relation to the pic I saw on your page about the deaf Ragdoll that nobody seemed to want. A cat being deaf isn’t a hindrance at all. It makes them all the more precious.
