Subject: more clarification on my screaming little girl

I realized I forgot a vital piece of information. Tequila is
definitely not deaf. I did suspect deafness for the first two
weeks, I have a deaf ferret and her actions were very similar
to his. However her lack of response to sounds were more due
to interest in everything else.

She responds to sounds (shaking treat can, calling her name,
etc) so I'm 99 percent sure that she's not deaf.
Funny I try to describe her interactions to others and the
best analogy I can come up with is ... Imagine being raised by
wolves until you were about 15, then dumped in New York City!
