This is the latest of my rescues. I have 5 cats, 3 are rescues. 4 years ago around a very wet Thanksgiving for 2 weeks I was awaken by a cat screaming in the middle of the night, each time I would go out and look for this cat. After two weeks of running through the downpours trying to find him I heard him crying again and I ran outside and I called, nothing, then I heard him, really close and I got down on my knees and leaned over and there is was under my truck, he ran to me like I was his best friend. I scooped up this wet, cold, scared baby and ran into the house with him and into my one daughters room to keep him from the other cats. She came and got me and said Mom he won't lay down, something is wrong. It took me about 5 minutes to figure out he was deaf. I know it is a trait with white cats, but I have never had a white cat that was deaf.

I took him in my room once I cleared the rest of the clan off my bed I watched him. He shoveled food in his mouth like it was his last meal and then he would try to sleep sitting up, I am assuming that was his only defense after he was dumped After finally eating his fill, the full belly and warm surroundings got the better of him and he fell over, literally.

It was months before he could wake up without me in the room and not panic and run crying through the house looking for me. He has learned volume control which he had none of when we first found him, partly due to not being fixed. I call him my forever 2 year old, he is into everything and has to be watch constantly because he seems to have no instinct to danger, everything is a toy to him. He has brought such joy to this house, I can't imagine life without him.
