ISTANBUL: A unique four-eared cat rescued in Turkey has now been given a permanent home. This cat is becoming increasingly popular on social media.
The cat has been dubbed ‘Midas’, which is probably a combination of Russian and blue-eyed cat. In addition to its regular ears, there are two small extra ears that are born of phased genetic mutations by parents. But doctors say his hearing is fine and the extra ears have made no difference.
Despite her birth defects, Midas was raised by a Turkish woman at the age of four months. The woman already had a cat and a dog, and thought Midas would love it.
Midas is a cute dark gray cat with an Instagram account and 25,000 followers. According to experts, extra small ears do not play a role in hearing. The woman who adopted him decided to adopt him immediately when she saw him in the animal shelter and now they are living in a quiet house.
