There is the whole, 85% of white cats with blue eyes are deaf. My pretty kitty is definitely not deaf, but could she be hard of hearing or deaf in one ear? Or is she just REALLY good at ignoring me haha! I know she isn't deaf because when it is quiet and just me and her, if I do the kissy sound, she'll turn and look right at me. But, she is very skittish with noise, and we have 3 loud kids. Her ears are always going back and forth all the time, like she's on high alert. If I call her, she won't look at me at all. Maybe she just wants to ignore me :) Who knows! But, the skittish thing, makes me wonder if she just can't hear 'good'. But, she can definitely hear as I test that out now and again :) Are white cats typically skittish? Sometimes she will shoot across the house because something freaked her out and she knocks down everything in her path LOL. :)
My other cat on the other hand, he responds to his name. Any time I say his name he turns and looks at me. :) I love that!
