A rare cat was able to attract a lot of attention online over recently after being born with two extra ears (they are more like flaps than ears). Valerie and Ted Rock, the cat’s owners had adopted the weird-looking cat back in 2006 and gave him the name of Yoda, a nod to the famous star wars figure, character, and legendary Jedi.


According to The Telegraph:

Yoda’s (The cat) extra ears, which are not thought to help him with the hearing are not attached to the base of his tiny skull, with one ear placed slightly behind the other. They are believed to be the aftermath of a genetic mutation.


Aside from Yoda’s genetic mutation, he is actually a happy indoor domestic cat with an ‘interesting obsession with bread’ according to Valerie. To learn more about Yoda, you can check out this Daily Mail article.
