Aw, he is adorable 97guns! Our first cat adopted us when she was around 6-7 months old so we missed out on the kitty stage. When she was gone and we went out to adopt a new cat we avoided kitties for two reasons: didn't want to have to deal with that stage and older cats are not as adoptable. Kitty Two was around 4-5 years old so we took care of both concerns. Again, what a cutie! Makes me rethink the "kitty" part....

From what I've heard and seen on-line deafness is related to eye color, specifically blue eyes. The more blue eyes, the higher chance of deafness (<25% of non-blue-eye cats will be deaf; 1 blue eye=up to 40% chance; both eyes blue=65% to 85% chance). Now you'll have to check out the neighbor's cats' eye color!
