The gorgeous beauty in the picture is Anastasia of South Woodford, E18; she suffers from congenital deafness, which is caused by degeneration of the inner ear. A lot of white cats can suffer from deafness.
Anastasia is a challenge to look after, as her cat sitter, not because she is vicious, far from it, she is a sweetheart, but because communication with a deaf cat has it challenges!
Having worked with deaf people many many years ago, deaf cats and animals use the same triggers are humans. So, for example, when I walk into a room, I tap my foot on the floor firmly or flash the lights on and off, deaf cats, like humans feel the vibrations, and obviously see the lights.
However, like most, if not all cats, Anastasia enjoys a game of string, a brush and some fuss whilst I am cat sitting her.
