A Rare Cat Born With Four Ears; Yoda His Name Is
A rare cat born with two extra ears (they are more like flaps) has recently resurfaced online after first garnering online attention over a decade ago.
Owners, Valerie and Ted Rock, adopted the frisky feline back in 2006 and decided to name him Yoda, a nod to the famous Star Wars character and legendary Jedi.
According to The Telegraph:
Yoda’s extra ears – which are not thought to help him hear – are not attached to the base of his skull, with one placed slightly behind the other. They are believed to be the result of a genetic mutation.
Aside from his genetic mutation, Yoda is a happy indoor cat with an ‘interesting obsession with bread’ according to Valerie. To learn more about Yoda, you can check out this Daily Mail article.
