A Cat Born Without Eyes
We probably don't think about it often, but humans are not the only ones that may have trouble in perceiving the world as it is. This cat was born without eyes but it was able to adapt through the use of its whiskers and ears. The cat was able to detect changes in the air through its whiskers, similar to how humans were described to do in Rosenblum's book about our five senses. The video shows how the cat was able to adapt to the point where the owners would occasionally forget that their cat is blind and it would difficult to remember as their cat is able to play, move, and jump around without any difficulty. The cat is even able to go up and down the stairs without any problem now, due to the owners having taught it the distance between each step by tapping. It's amazing how an animal is able to adapt so well without sight.
