Meet Yoda, two-year-old house cat was born with four ears but is otherwise in good health and appears to have perfect hearing.
Yoda was adopted by Valerie and her husband two years ago after visiting a bar near their home in Chicago. As the couple saw Yoda, they immediately felt in love with him. They quickly asked the owner to adopt him and named the cat Yoda, after the pointy-eared Jedi knight in Star Wars.
Once Yoda was officially their newest family member, Valerie decided to have Yoda checked out with the local vet. The vet was mystified by his unique appearance. He had never even heard of a 4-eared cat before.
Yoda's extra ears are believed to be the result of a genetic mutation. However, it doesn't hurt or hinder him. His extra little pair of ears are separate to the base of his skull, so his hearing is normal.
Yet despite his unusual looks, he is a perfectly normal affectionate, curious cat and is a joy to have around. He is not afraid of anything and is very sociable unlike some of the other cats in the house.
