See okay. It's not just me that it seems like Miko hears things just fine....but certain things. I did try this noise that I make to get his attention to wake him up (always used it, just not to wake him up). It seemed to startle him still. May have to play with the pitch and loudness. But he seems to respond to high pitch noises. I would say his name, then make the noise, but low pitched, then change it to high pitched and then he'd wake up. So obviously he can here, just not everything I'd assume. I'll play with the sound of that noise for now. If it works, it'll also help me know when his hearing is getting worse.
