Have you ever heard of the term “four eyes” used to describe people who wear glasses? Well, get ready for a new one: “four ears.” This peculiar term perfectly describes Midas, a kitten living in Ankara, Turkey with her owner Canis Dosemeci. Midas’ unique features, which include four ears due to a rare genetic mutation, have quickly made her an internet sensation as Dosemeci documents her adventures on Instagram.
Midas’ mutation results in two small ears located in front of the usual set seen on cats. But what’s even more fascinating is that all four of her earlaps are functional! A veterinarian has examined Midas and confirmed that they are all connected to her ear canal. Unfortunately, the genetic mutation has also caused a defective jaw in Midas. However, she lives her life like any other cat, lounging around and playing with her Golden Retriever brothers.
Through Midas’ otherwise ordinary existence, Dosemeci hopes to inspire others to rescue pets instead of buying them. So if you’re looking for a feline friend with a unique twist, look no further than Midas, the cat with four fully functional ears.
Midas, the feline with a few extra ears, is just as playful and affectionate as any ordinary kitten. She adores spending time frolicking and cuddling with her canine siblings.
