Are White Cats Deaf?

Friday, August 4, 2017

whitecat2It’s a common belief that all white cats are born deaf and that blue eyed white cats are prone to blindness and deafness. Blue eyed white cats are no more prone to blindness than any other cat. They are more likely to be deaf. White cats make up about five percent of all cats. Of these, fever than half have one or two blue eyes. Most white cats with orange or green eyes have normal hearing. Up to 80% of all white cats are born deaf in at least one ear. If your cat falls in this category, don’t worry. A deaf cat can be a perfectly sweet and attractive companion. If he is deaf, don’t ever let him outdoors. Keep him safe indoors with all of his cat toys and lots of love from you.
