Casper is a foster kitten who lives in California’s Bay Area. He loves to purr, play and he really loves to eat. You wouldn’t be able to tell just by looking at him or by watching him interact with other cats, but Casper is both hearing and visually impaired.

The small, white kitten came to his foster family from Saving Grace Rescue, a rescue group in San Francisco, California.

“I don’t think he can hear at all. He doesn’t react even if we have commotion in the house,” his foster mom, Joyce, told Love Meow.

We’ve been activated for duty!!!

Rescue workers believe Casper’s deafness and blindness are due to genetics. But those disabilities don’t stop Casper from being a regular, curious kitten.

“He gets around great at our house, goes up and down the stairs like a regular kitty, and I have not seen him running into things much,” said Joyce, whose last name was immediately available.

This video was taken today morning.

Baby Casper and I had a stair training session yesterday night and now, he’s a pro. Being sight and hearing impaired does not limit him, that’s for sure!

And he certainly has no problem finding his food.

He loves to play.

Casper along with the rest of our gang are waiting to hear the results of this election!

This dangling toy that Casper was trying to catch is like Hillary and Donald trying to catch the presidency.

“He purrs a lot. You touch him, and it’s as if he is an automatic purr machine. He loves to cuddle and is not afraid of anything,” Joyce, who also cares for a cat with radial hypoplasia named Kanga Roo, told Love Meow.

Casper may not be able to see or hear like other cats, but he sure doesn’t know he’s any different.
