We are proud and excited to say that we adopted a deaf kitty this weekend! We began to talk about adopting a second cat to keep our hearing cat company several months ago. We talked about the idea of adopting a deaf kitty and we had no idea how difficult it is for deaf pets to find homes until I learned about www.deafanimalrow.blogspot.com and visited with Katherine via email. It made me want to try even harder to look for a deaf kitty to adopt. We looked for a deaf kitty to adopt for many months and it was worth the wait! Angel had waited for a year and half until now to be adopted when all of her hearing siblings got adopted a long time ago.
My husband and I are deaf. We have a daughter who will be 4 this summer and she is hearing. We explained to her many months ago about the idea of adopting a deaf kitty. We talked about it every day so she would become familiar with how to be around a deaf kitty such as letting the deaf kitty know that you are in the room by gently patting on its head or waving in front of its face.
We found a deaf kitty available for adoption, who was in a foster home, in a small town few miles from where we live. When we first met Angel (deaf kitty), we fell in love with her! She is adjusting to her new forever home very well. She loves to be with people and follows us everywhere we go in the house.
Thank you, Katherine, for having your awesome blog website that educates us so many things about deaf pets that need a home all over the United States. It got me so motivated to adopt a deaf kitty! I will continue to share this blog website with other people.
