Cats and Deaf Men

Discovery of the day: Squirt bottles work great on cats and deaf men.

When I’m outside and I need help, it’s not just a simple matter of waving in my window to get my husband’s attention.  With his RP/Ushers Syndrome, he can’t see me, and since he’s deaf, he can’t hear me.  I had a squirt bottle on my window (which was open) for my orchids, which I decided to try in a stream to get my Hobbit’s attention to come out and help me finish cleaning up the pool pump.  I gave him a little squirt (it barely reached him) and he came outside to help me!  It works!

I wanted to make sure he didn’t think this was going to solve all communication problems, so I told him very seriously:  “We’re always gonna have communication problems because… you’re a man.”

It never hurts to be honest about important things like this 😉
