Deafness in Cats

No matter the cause of your pet's deafness, special precautions are needed to accommodate deaf cats. Deaf animals cannot hear danger around them. For this reason, they must be protected and closely supervised around roads and traffic. Furthermore, animals that are unilaterally deaf will often have difficulty orienting to sound and may turn to the wrong direction, which is dangerous in some situations. If your cat is deaf, he should be kept indoors to prevent tragedy.

In the case of a deaf animal wandering away from you, remember that he cannot hear you call. Placing a bell on his collar will help you locate him.
