Deaf and mute tortie female kitten, 3-4 months as of Dec 06. RIP Aug 07.

Special kitties

Can you see Hope? He’s a special kitty lingcat rescued and is looking for a home.

Go to this blog entry on Dawn’s blog and see how active and lively this kitten is. You can also see all of lingcat’s posts on him here.

I do believe what Dawn observed about the special ones.

Look at Max, Born Without Eyes And Teeth


Max, an orange tabby, looks and acts like any normal cat. He grooms himself, tries to get attention from humans, and in general, is a curious cat. And he rules the roost at the Best Friends Animal Clinic in Oregon.

But up close, people who meet Max see that this cat is a bit different. He was born without eyes and teeth.

He was first discovered on a ranch two years ago. He was skittish and ran into inanimate objects.

… The staff tried to find his owners, but no one stepped up. Dr. Shannon Sierra, the veterinarian who was caring for Max, fell in love with the cat and decided to adopt him.

Sierra said: “At first, I figured he’d survive if he was cared for, but I didn’t know what his quality of life would be like. Then I spent some time with him and realized how well he gets around. He doesn’t know he’s handicapped. He just does what he needs to do and he does it really well. I figured out pretty quickly that I was the only one who was really having any issues.”

There are so many examples overseas: Poppet the Deafblind Kitten, Lola, Faith.

But in Singapore, besides Hope, there are also special kitties who do not let their disabilities get in their way, like these troopers under Foster Mum’s TLC: Karma (RIP Aug 07), Kobe, Gabbie (aka Debbie) and Andie (RIP Jul 07). And this guy – Blessing.

He looks like Max, but he’s not toothless, just born with eyes that were covered by membrane. He looks sightless, but is able to see somwwhat, ever since Foster Mum got the membrane trimmed away.


He’s perched on high here, happy as can be.


Little Karma’s getting a little bit better

Remember Karma? vegancat’s got an update on her.

Little Karma – video clip (13th January 2007)

Her convulsion frequencies and intensities have reduced. Phyllis is awaiting some medication ordered by a Vet from overseas. Karma’s interaction with people is increasing but still will not keep still to be carried in the arms. She will just skip off.

Karma Kitten, deaf and mute, but not unloved


This is Karma, a sweet 3-5 month old kitten that Foster Mum is caring for. She’s very insecure because she’s apparently deaf, and she’s suspected to be mute too. She’s been with Foster Mum for about 1-2 months now.

Recently, Foster Mum has been worrying more for her, because she started having fits. It happens almost daily, and usually late at night. So Foster Mum wakes up at night to check on her.

Karma on 25 Nov.

Karma’s vids on 25 Nov. She also seems to be physically deformed – note her legs and her back. But she is very sweet and gentle, though a bit shy.
