A HEARING EAR CAT
    A Hearing Ear cat? Not a joke. In England there was a
deaf woman, who lived by herself in her apartment
with a cat. Each time the doorbell rang, the cat would
jump into the deaf woman’s lap, alerting her that someone
was at the door. It worked each time.

A LONG TIME AGO DEAF BOXER HELPED CREATE 10-COUNT RULE
    Deaf Burke was a famous early 19th century boxer. Before one
big match, the referee was worried about Burke not able to
hear the shouted 10-count rule. If a boxer is knocked to the
floor, he must get up before the end of the 10-count rule or
he is knocked out. Instead, the referee used his arms to show
Burke each count. This is the rule that boxing uses today –
thanks to deaf Burke!
