A fungus called cryptococcus couldn't keep George down. Just look at that face!

He is a handsome devil. I too have a blind and deaf cat who is equally attractive also. Thank you.

Still a sucker for heartwarming, happy endings. George is so very lucky to have a human who loves him. Thank you for sharing him with us.

George is amazing! Animals are amazing!
Someone threw my Yambo in a trash bin, because he was born deaf and with a cleft palate, when he was only about 5wks old. I soon discovered he was blind due to toxoplasmosis. At 17yrs, he had a devastating stroke which left him with vestibular syndrome ~ unable to walk without tipping over. Now, at 18, he's back as ruler of the kingdom ~ first pick at the food bowls, commandeering the softest beds and warmest blankets ~ and bossing and intimidating 3 giant dogs.

He is beyond handsome and that's what should rule his live. Not being blind and deaf. They are just a hindrance to him not to have them, but he has made a beautiful life in spite of them.

Such a handsome one you are, a delightful orange tabby, I can just hear those rousing purrs. Sad that George had the unfortunate bout with cryptococcus. Cats are very adaptable when blind and deaf. One of the cats that owned me went blind in the last part of her senior years but the vets had no idea of when it happened or why.
