In order to understand and respond to the unique needs of the deaf cat, both have a closer relationship and better communication skills. A sensitive pet keeps track of how your body responds to your environment. Time, persistence and patience are needed for both the owner and the pet to get to know each other and learn to "speak" each other's tongue.
Since there is no hearing to rely on, the deceased cat's remaining senses tend to increase. For example, a deaf animal can rely on vibration (touch), smells (or scents) or lights (sight) for stimulation. My cat, Beau, is a deaf eyed to a beautiful and very confused white Turkish angora. He was saved from a shelter and came to me when I was two years old, depressed and withdrawn because of the inability to interact with others. This beautiful cat sat for a month under the cafe table, lagging behind and in his own small world, just came out to eat or use the cat's box. In the following weeks I looked at her behavior and noticed that she was responding when someone walked around the hardwood floor around her. He felt the vibrations on the floor and woke up when he felt the movement.
To learn how to respond to vibrations, they taught Beau to respond to the floor on my treadmill and dine. He quickly learned this, along with quick, simple signs (pointing to my finger saying "Come here"). This inspired him, and his mood joined every new relationship with his new family. He wanted to engage, and by being able to do this, he lifted his mood. Over time, I used a combination of simple visual signs and floor drilling to teach him other basic commands (such as "no", "good kitty", etc.). Besides, I noticed that Beau was sleeping very loud, but she jumped across the roof when she suddenly fell silent. Too many sudden tactile stimuli are surprising to him. So, to remedy this, I gently touch or touch what she sets up to let me know I'm there and approaching. This had a tremendous impact on the shock.
In everyday life, as I saw Beau, I noticed that she was enjoying fast moving lights and shadows. He sat on the clock, having fun with the sudden movement of the walls. So to give him a little game, using this knowledge I bought a glittering crystal ball pliers and I dropped it out of the window. When the sun reaches, rainbows fly everywhere. Florida always has a rainbow in the living room from the bullet. Beau will spend the whole day chasing out the rainbow and will come by me if they do not. He looks at the window as if asking if I'm going to bring the rainbow back. This sunbeam is the only game since Beau can not find the least fun, normal cat games. This is the result of getting things that are really happy and excited.
Seeing how Beau responds with happiness to the touch, I thought that pets often enjoyed it. If I'm next to him, my hand reaches me to wound him as I walk. It melts like a hairy, white stained spot when you touched yourself. When he sees picking up his brush, he knows he intends to use it and waits waiting, waiting. Something as small as a brush that makes it comfortable for him, as if brushing was like his mom's long-haired hair.
Another way to connect to Beau is to grab and talk to your hair to feel the vibration of my voices. When I do this, she is happy, I know I'm "talking to her". When the college was in the neighbor's school years ago, the school of deaf. I remember that hearing impairment or deaf people were still reluctant to go to rock concerts. When I asked a friend (who was partially deaf) why he loved the concerts, he told me that he felt because he felt the vibration of the music. His musical experience was different than mine, but he felt so strong. So, I use this idea when I speak Beau's hair as I do. It feels like I'm talking, and although it's not the same as speech, experience finds itself positive in its own way. A mysterious behavior Beau regularly confuses with midnight opera singing. This is my latest jigsaw puzzle. Being deaf, he does not realize that when he sings on his lung he wakes up everyone in the house. Sometimes he sits on the big windows facing the lake and sings aloud in front of his neighbors. I'm glad to try to communicate with others, but I'm trying to teach him how to lure his singing talent without anyone screaming. By keeping her awake and thrusting all day, she found that Beau was sleeping on the night, cutting off to the moonlight serenades. It is about adapting to each other. We're still learning about it.
Living with deaf-living animals is a challenging but still highly rewarding experience. Beau brought us diversity, love and many songs into our lives. She is happy, loving and very good to let me know what she needs now. We have developed a communication working environment and as a result he is working on my side at my daily home office. He taught me to be more sensitive and taught him to come out of hiding and enjoy life. We have both grown up with a small teamwork. I highly recommend the deaf pet to everyone who is patient, caring and willing to try to understand their new family members. Every pet can read and study other deaf animals. The result is a happy, well-adjusted cat who will give you endless love and devotion and peace of mind in the consciousness of saving a pet from the loneliness of the entire solitude. It is worth taking the effort in the end.
