This deaf cat can cleverly communicate with her owner as she has learnt to understand sign language. James Dickenson, 28, from Newbury, Berkshire, has taught his deaf cat, Kafka, sign language so that he is able to communicate with his feline friend. After adopting adorable Kafka, who was born deaf, last summer, James has been working hard to teach her a variation of signs so that he is able to communicate with her. He says that after moving into a house from a flat with his fiancé, Jo, they were desperate to welcome a pet cat into their family.
