Otitis the Cat with No Ears Celebrates a Big Milestone with His Mom | The Dodo Party Animals

The day that I saw Otitis I was on Petfinder, and I always do the
“special needs” checkbox. And he popped up. And I’m like, “This
cat is earless. I have never seen an
earless cat before. I — I need this cat.” I finally put in an application,
and the rest is history. Otits externa is actually
the disorder that he had that caused his
ears to be removed. In his previous owners, he started to develop
ear infections. And apparently they
sought out care, and didn’t want to pay for it. And it just kept getting worse. He was in so much pain. So finally, the
family gave him up to the rescue association. They raised the money to
get his ears removed. As a result of the surgery, which
is a very common side effect, a cranial nerve was
slightly damaged, resulting in difficulty
keeping his eye completely open. He should be completely deaf. His inner ears were removed, his cochlea was removed, which is the part that
will pick up the sounds. He can hear some things. He relies a lot on
just vibrations. In March of 2014, I
was in a car accident where I was unconscious for
probably about an hour. I had a lot of anxiety as
a result of the effects. It was just completely, completely
ruining my quality of life. I realized that a therapy animal would probably be a great thing. And I found Otitis,
and I adopted him, and it was almost an
immediate change. The first day I brought him
home, I was a little nervous. They, like, gave you this
paperwork, and they’re like, “Well, keep him in
an isolated room so he can adjust, and really slowly work his
way into the apartment.” Brought him home, and
immediately he’s like, “I’m King Otitis.” And he was like, running
around, and he was playful. And he–he adjusted immediately. And honestly, he’s always
been that kind of a cat. -How are you gonna get out?
Oh, that’s how. From day one, he, like,
trusted us completely. If you’d come home
from a bad day, you’d see Otitis, like,
running to the door, and loving his treats. And it just kind of made you
put things into perspective, being like, “These
things are great. Unconditional love is great,” and it just completely
just changed your perspective, it made things a lot better. Otitis has a very
unique personality. He goes from being the sassiest
cat in the entire world, and then he’ll completely
shift into just being the most loving cat,
most compassionate cat. Otitis never leaves the room. He’s always right next to you. He wants to be a part of
whatever the humans are doing, which is very
different for a cat. His party is about
celebrating his ear removal, he’s coming up on his second
year without his ears. And just, that kind of just
represents him being healthy and happy, and celebrating
his — his home and his life with us. Some of the decorations
we are doing is the banner, that is just — has my favorite picture of
him with his mouth open, ’cause that always cracks
me up when he does that. Here’s your cake! -What? No! We’re gonna have cupcakes
with his face on it. He is also very well-known
for his blue eyes and his black nose. And we have bag decorating. His favorite thing is
to be in paper bags. So we want to see
who is gonna make the most attractive bag. So, Otitis loves his ball toys, so I had to put some
of those inside. -A sports bag. The
simple sports bag. -I did a puppet approach. -A little obstacle
course going on there. -I figure, what cat
doesn’t like strings? We all made you bags. You have
to go find your favorite. -Oh, ah!! [LAUGHTER] -I have this in the bag. [LAUGHTER] -I really thought he was going
to like that puppet aspect, but, you know, you win
some, you lose some. The bag game turned
out really well. We had a lot of fun. I’m a little disappointed that
he didn’t go into my bag first, but he ended up in my bag. So.
I’ll let that one slide. It took a while for Otitis
to finally find someone, and I’m glad that
person was Molly. -It’s probably hard in words to describe
how much Otitis means to Molly. After the car accident was a feat that I
didn’t think I was gonna be able to do. I’m emotional. They just — they changed me. And I’m almost back
to where I was, which I never thought I
would be able to do. So I gave him the home, and
he gave me my life back.

  8. My god, who are the people who dislike these videos? It's not click bait, its not violent and if you dont want to watch it click off the video or dont click on it in the first place!

  9. Otitis makes his name sound less like that of a disease, and more like that of a hero from Greek mythology. I'm glad that this sweet kitty was able to help this woman recover and not only get her life back in order, but also make it better. Wish I could meet this cat and play with him in real life. Love you King Otitis! ❤️❤️❤️

  10. For animals like cats, the ear hair is very relied on to pick up sound vibrations. So, having said that, boxes and bags amplify sound. Check it out by playing meowing on your phone inside a bag. Blessings, I wish I could be friends with this group. I adore their ambition.

  11. Really lady??? …….I just LOVE animal lovers like you!!! You make my heart happy an tons of others too!! It's sooo obvious how much T loves her too……this is a LOVE STORY……lol! It's these sensational heart warming stories that keep me alive!! Thank you / Peace!!

  12. I honestly don't think people realize how much an animal can do for a person. You hear stories on how a cat or dog gave back their owners their lives back and it's true. Animals are just amazing and intelligent creatures that sadly humans take granted for.

  13. They're meant to be together. 😍😍😍😘😘
    Otitis is sooo adorable!!! 😆😆😆😆

  15. Hey! Mr Otitis! You, Sir, are way too cute! I’m so glad that you and your Mama found each other. Y’all are already each helping the other. As All of us are supposed to do. Peace, Luck, Love, + a Long Life together with your Family, Otitis. PS. He does kinda resemble a baby Harp (?) Seal. 🥰

  16. Wow! That is so sweet! What a soldier that kitty is surviving having his inner ears removed. I cannot imagine that has been easy to adjust to and live with. Ears or no ears he is an adorable and rambunctious fellow! The lucky guy practically has the best mom and human he could have! It's wonderful to see! It makes me so happy!!!♥♡♥♡♥♡

  17. 노무 귀엽자나 ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅜ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
