What is the best way to test for deafness in a kitten? I'm not sure, but I think Elle might be deaf.... anyone know ways to test?

Oddly enough, if they happen to have a smudge of colour between the ears on top of the head, they can hear.
Thought that kitty may be all white and it sounds as if she is deaf to me.
Good luck at the vets...Some people I am sure would still take on a deaf cat but you would have to be very wary to offer her to the right person.
She could obviously NEVER be an outdoor cat as there would be so many dangers in her not hearing.
Hope it turns out well.
