Tato is a special boy who needs a really special person. He was born blind and deaf, and like most disabled cats, he navigates the world so amazingly well, it's hard to believe he can't see or hear. He is playful, affectionate and he absolutely loves to cuddle with people. He's even started cleaning the other cats in the house. BUT, because he cannot see or hear, we believe (after many veterinary and behaviorist consults) that he uses vibrations from sound on his whiskers to navigate his surroundings. So he yowls very loudly. He also experiences the world through his mouth, so when he gets excited, he can nip and bite. He is on medication to calm him down a bit and it's working very well. His forever home will need to be able to play with him with toys and even work on positive reinforcement training with him - which he loves. That kind of interaction tires him out and makes him a very happy cat. AND he is great with the litter box.
