I had a deaf cat growing up. She did seem confused frequently and would hiss when surprised. But she was a sweetheart and very beautiful! I named her Helen (after Helen Keller -- what a silly kid I was ).

Of course, we kept her indoors as she would not have been safe outside. Other than that, I can't remember any other major issues.

My friend had a deaf cat that was indoor only and the only problem she had was that the cat used to get startled a lot because it couldn't hear you walking towards it etc...

Other than that the cat and her were fine

I have a few friends with deaf cats and all of theirs are very well adjusted and laid back, so don't spook, etc. easily. They even come running for wet food (cause the feel the vibrations of the other cats). Only "downside" is they don't come when called...but heck most hearing cats don't either!
