Let’s start with most aristocratic solid-colored cat of all, the white cat. Most white cats having blue eyes have a higher probability of genetic deafness. A deaf cat could live a somewhat unrestricted country life, for living in the city may be risky to cats who can’t hear. The hearing deficient cat will respond to vibrations on the surface where he or she is on in order to catch his attention. They eventually learn to recognize specific hand signals such as “Come,” “Eat,” or “No,” but very rare will they read lips.
Many white cats have orange eyes. White cats having any eye color excluding blue is not deaf. Odd-eyed White cats with one blue and the other orange, may be deaf on the side with the blue eye, but can hear with the ear near the orange eye. If a blue-eyed white cat possess even small patches of colored fur on his body, his sense of hearing will be normal. Because cats typically have highly sensitive hearing abilities, it won’t be hard to find out whether your blue-eyed white is deaf or not.
Black is the second most familiar solid color. The fur of black cats may fade in the sun, turning the coat into a rusty hue, which makes them unsuitable as show material. Black cats generate a lot of electrical energy, particularly during cold weather. In fact, when the temperature is at 0° F in dry air, stroking your black cat in a dark room will create sparks. Perhaps this could be the reason why people in the olden days perceive black cats to be magical.
