Deaf cat looking for a deaf owner (SPCA Montreal) - Adopted - Yay!
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi everyone,

I've never posted here before but I'm posting this on behalf of the Montreal SPCA because this is a very special cat with a special need. Here is the request that was sent to me by email. Many thanks everyone and please contact Louise Allard for any further information. Marko
-------------------------------------------------------------

Hero is looking for a family,

The SPCA has a very special resident who is looking for a special family. His name is Hero, although we could call him Pavarotti. He is one year old. He was adopted twice and returned each time, then sent to a foster home and returned again. Hero is one of the most affectionate cats I have met in my life. He is mostly looking for human companionship and the word “independent” is not part of his vocabulary. He loves to be hugged and will ask for it. Sometimes, he refuses to be put down on the floor and hang on your neck (so cute).

But why is he returned then?

Hero is deaf – well we believe he hears a little but very little – and he doesn’t hear himself meowing out loud and at 2 a.m. which can become a problem.

So we came up with three scenarios to resolve his problem:


1. We believe Hero would be the ideal companion for a person with some hearing problems living alone and who would appreciate the companionship of a very affectionate cat all day long.

2. Vets believe that his need to meow could be improved by taken a medication prescribed for anxiety problems, Clavocalm, although Hero doesn’t suffer from any anxiety problem. There is no guarantee it would work. So in this scenario, we are looking for a volunteer family to do the experiment and give us a report of their observations. We would provide the medication.

3. Hero could live in a home where he would be kept in a isolated room during the night. That’s not the best scenario but conceivable.


Our little cuddling friend is full of unconditional love and deserves that we do everything within our power to find him a family. Hero gets alone very well with other cats and dogs and likes to play hike-and-seek.

He is adorable! I pray they find his special home. He sure didn't look too happy to being held onto in that video. The tail was swishing a mile a minute!
Once again I am too far away to be of assistance. :sad:

Hero, the Deaf cat
 
My husband and I are Deaf - we want to adopt two cats - we are not sure what kind until I decided to check if there are any Deaf cats for adoption

I came across Hero and we would like to adopt him - whom should I contact to discuss the adoption further?

I am new to this and I am still figuring out how this website works

If you look at the very first posting at the beginning of this thread you will see the contact information for the organization that is caring for this kitty.

I would suggest you send a private message to Marko and see if you can get an email address for the montreal spca.... as I'm not sure their phones would be equiped with TTY. (and really who uses snail mail anyhow... :o)

thanks for reminding me to look at the original message about Hero

I just tried to call and the answering machine was on - it asked if I wanted English and to press 9

the operator did - but the machine continued in French

I'll try to contact Marko directly and try to get an email address

thanks
