Today’s news proves that if you’re deaf, you should get a cat. First we have Tom 2.
That’s him with his owner, Betty Macaluso, who is deaf. Tom 2 wakes her up each morning (since she can’t hear an alarm clock) and, with his brother Tiger, lets her know when someone is at the door or calling on her video phone. He also let her know when termites infested their house.
Then we have the mysterious, unnamed black cat in this story from Salt Lake City. He alerted his deaf owner to a deadly fire in her home, allowing her to escape. If you watch the video on the site, you can catch a glimpse of him strolling along like it was all in a day’s work.
So, in conclusion, if you are deaf, having a cat will keep you from being late, save you money, and possibly save your life.
