Gloria, I took in a blind and deaf cat a couple of years ago (I think she could
see shadows, maybe)- she was 18, and her owner was moving to Chicago and
didn't want to be bothered with her- she was going to be put to sleep if no one
took her, so of course Crazy Cat Lady here came to the rescue.
you can post him on the www.handicappedpet.net boards, too--there's a fair
number of folks with deaf or blind or deaf/blind kitties there. you also
might want to talk with alana at the blind cat sanctuary in NC anyway, she
has lots of contacts there's another place, also in NC, i think, called
LOL well it's practically a sanctuary here. Thanks for the info
though, if you know of any places for a cat like this let me know,
I'll continue looking.

to become a hoarder. but, i love each and every one of them and would rather
eat less myself than give thm up.
I hope you will consider keeping him as he will do much better in a private
home than a sanctuary.
I have a blind cat and am going to take in a deaf cat so have been doing
lots of research.
He would be fine in one room of your house. He will learn his way around
that room and feel safe.
GREAT info here on: blind cats, deaf cats and deaf-blind cats
Cats that keep bumping into things either can't co-ordinate their limbs or
can't see. A blind eye is often cloudy or the pupil remains dilated even in
bright light. Some cats are
