SO I had posted before about Oreo being scared or freakin out anytime she sees or hears anything she just goes balistic.
I am starting to think that Oreo might be deaf. The reason I say this is because I can make a loud noise etc and she doesnt move, I can talk to ehr when coming into the room it makes no difference I walk in the room and next thing u know 5 minutes after being there when she sees me she freaks right out, or anyone.
She has a cateract on her one eye so to me I think she may be sight impaired in that eye and the whole being deaf or not hearing well I need some tips.
does she respond to movement? i don't know if vets can do tests to check for that in animals... but i wonder if when you walk in the room... if you move your feet more deliberately... not stomping per se... but put your feet down solidly, maybe she'll sense the movement?
Oh, poor sweet Oreo. What kind of flooring is in your house, I am just wondering on the vibration in the floor that she can pick up.
Here is an articles on deaf bunnies:
If you really think she is deaf, try to approach her from the side at an angle where she can see you. Having a cateract I know might make this almost impossible, but may help alleviate some of her stress at your "sudden" appearance.
Let us know how it goes!
