Senior Deaf Kitty Finds Help When Others Walk Away

All animals have strong survival instinct and deaf ones are no different. Deaf cats adapt to a silent world, quite effectively if they have the help of loving owners who learn to optimize nonverbal communication.

Pure white cats with blue eyes are beautiful and also more likely to be deaf. Congenital sensorineural deafness occurs in domestic cats with a white coat. It is a congenital deafness caused by a degeneration of the inner ear. Deafness can occur in white cats with yellow, green or blue irises, although it is mostly likely in white cats with blue irises.

Meet Kiro, the 10 years old kitty who experienced some sad events in his life as a stray. He was living in his ‘silent’ world without knowing how it is to feel safe. Kiro was born deaf and was found dirty and wounded, roaming the streets.

A woman noticed him and decided to turn his fate around. She offered him his first touch of love and took him at the vet for a check. He had some injuries as he was hit by cars more then once. He was also suffering with an infection at the leg, mites and fungus.

“When he first met me he came to me meowing loudly like he was asking to be rescued. He was so dirty and he was walking with difficulty. I knew I couldn’t just leave him there.” Kiro’s rescuer told Land of Cats.

Kiro received the medical treatments that he needed and he was nursed back to health.

“He needed a lot of TLC to understand he is safe and that his life is totally changed. He is such a loving boy and he needs more cuddles and attention than a normal cat.” she said.
