Deaf Senior Cat Walks Into A Neighbors Home and Changes His Life Forever

Bob the Cat

We all know that pets are special creatures. They are loving, funny, caring, cuddly, and so much more. When you need to be picked up and feel good, animals can do that for you. At the same time, pets need to feel loved as well. They know when people truly care for them. Unfortunately, all too many animals suffer in this world because of one malady or another. It seems that many humans only want to care for animals that require little work or maintenance. When something is wrong, they simply do not want the trouble or the hassle. Since animals cannot always take care of their own issues, they are left fending for themselves. We have to think that deep inside they are just hoping for a loving caretaker to enter their life at some point.

Enter the Deaf Senior Cat

Not long ago, we read this story of an older male cat who just happened to be deaf. Now, it is difficult enough for a human to go through life without the ability to hear. Imagine being a cat who has lost all ability to hear. Life must be quite frightening. How will they hear traffic, owners calling for them, other cats expressing danger ahead, and so much more than animals with hearing, like humans, seem to take advantage of. Regardless, let us get back to this cat. This particular cat, like many with special needs, was neglected and cast aside. The cat, however, was not willing to give up on life. He knew he needed someone to take care of him, so he was off in search of a family who would take him and give him the care that he needed. Of course, he could not express them himself, but that is the picture of the situation that we get.

One day, he hit the animal equivalent of the jackpot. He was able to walk right into a families home who just happened to be a cat rescuer. They immediately took to the cat, discovered he was deaf and would provide him the home that he has been looking for all this time. This story happened in Florida, but it could happen anywhere. We simply need to be willing to be open to helping animals who are in need. When we do, the animal will often open their life up to us as well. We all need someone to invest our lives in. If that is a deaf cat, then all the more reason to find out how we can help.

The Story

The person who actually ended up taking the cat in is Andrea Christian. Interestingly enough, she has long been an animal foster provider for the St. Francis Society Animal Rescue. She has been featured in numerous human interest stories in the past as well. It seems that she has dedicated her life to helping the animals around the area who are in the most need of care. She has become a lifesaver of sorts for these animals, as one deaf elderly male cat can certainly attest to.

The cat that would walk into her life was very friendly, but obviously old and in need of some help. She would do what she could and the relationship has flourished ever since. it is almost as if the cat knew exactly the situation that he needed to walk in to in order to survive, and that is exactly what he did. At the time, the cat was very skinny but did not appear to have any serious injuries. Regardless, Andrea took him to a veterinarian to get a thorough check up. Now, up until this point, Andrea had no idea the cat was deaf. How would you? It is not as if you actually have a conversation with a cat. At the same time, the vet looked for a chip to see if the cat had an owner, and that is where the story gets interesting.

Bob the Cat

Andrea discovered that the cat’s name is Bob. He was adopted not long before by a nice lady who was not really aware of the medical issues that the cat had. At the same time, she did not abandon Bob. She simply didn’t realize that deaf cats should not be left outside. It is too difficult for them to survive, and they often wander off before realizing when it is too late that they do not know how to get back home. This was not the first time that Bob had wandered off. In the end, the new owner admitted that she could not take care of the elderly cat. She ended asking the foundation that Andrea worked with to take control. And, that is what Andrea did.

The interesting part of this story is that Bob has about to put to sleep because of his age and the fact that nobody was going to adopt him. With the woman adopting him in the first place, it was like the clock had been reset. Andrea gladly took the cat in. Who knows how much time he actually has left, but we get the picture that it is going to be a happier life in the end.
