Charlie is an adorable deaf white cat that looks after one of my best friends. He lives with Jack the Bichon Frise crossed with Westie who can be seen in my portfolio. Charlie rules the roost even though he is totally deaf.
Researchers found that only 17 to 22 percent of white cats with non-blue eyes are born deaf. The percentage rises to 40 percent if the cat has one blue eye, while upwards of 65 to 85 percent of all-white cats with both eyes blue are deaf. Some of these cats are deaf in only one ear. Interestingly, if a white cat with one blue eye is deaf in only one ear, that ear will invariably be on the same side of the head as the blue eye.
