Silent Sunday on Frequently Feline: Meet Mario

If I didn't know better, I would think that someone cloned our white Oriental Shorthair, Trouble.  When I ran across this cute video created  by Creepymonsterboy, I did a double trouble take, and immediately fell in love with Mario.

I do wonder what may be causing  Mario's deafness however, as Oriental Shorthairs do not have the same genetic makeup that predisposes them to deafness, even though frequently blue-eyed white cats are deaf.

Enjoy the video and marvel at our how much our cats really resemble each other.  Don't you agree? Leave a comment after you wipe your eyes!

What a beautiful fellow. He is so charming, and no doubt well behaved. I wonder how they know he is deaf!

WOW He does look like Trouble. Twin brother? And I love the music on the video. :)

Wow, he sure does look like Trouble. Maybe his coat is a bit heavier, but otherwise, they could be twins!

Vicki, the way you find out a cat is deaf is the same way you find out a baby is deaf: the first hint is that they don't respond to sharp noises.

Thank you Rani. I guess that make a lot of sense.
