Do you see the illusion? Evan has two lovely green eyes. Yet, in that there picture, his right eye looks blue! He'd like to thank the sun for helping him create this illusion.
Evan is now considering starting a career as an illusionist. What do you all think of that?
Our Doodle of the Day:
Our Tip of the Day:It is a myth that all blue-eyed and all white-coated cats are deaf. Genetic factors result in deafness in some cats with blue eyes and white coats, though certainly not all. Many breeds have a normal tendency toward blue eyes, such as Siamese, and this does not correlate with deafness in most cases. Similarly, some breeds or bloodlines have a high frequency of white fur coat, but this does not always mean deafness. And, of course, there are also cats without blue eyes or white fur who can be deaf, even if from old age. In the case of a deaf cat, you might notice that they do not respond to your calling them or to sounds such as the opening of a can of food. They also might be difficult to wake from sleep, or might be jumpy when awakened or touched. Of course, it is always recommended that a veterinarian make an official diagnosis. That all being said, deaf cats can still live happy lives with a perfectly good quality of life. They might be "special needs" in some respects, but they can still thrive. Even cats can be taught hand signals and other cues to follow in the case of deafness, and there is certainly no reason to fear or worry about being owned by a deaf cat.There are a couple of considerations to make, though. For example, if you have a kitty with deafness or are considering adopting one, please understand that it would of course be in their best interest to remain an indoor only kitty, since they would be unable to hear the approach of another predator or other danger. Just as with any "special needs" cat or dog, deaf furbabies may require some extra care or monitoring, but they still have lots of love and life to offer!
