A four-eared German kitten has been given a new home after a German animal shelter was deluged with requests to adopt the animal born…with the genetic defect. — Reuters, “Four-eared kitten finds new home; ‘Lilly’ perfectly healthy and able to hear,” MSNBC, 30 March 2004.

Seven-Eared Kitten

A cat born with three ears has baffled vets by growing another four ears. Experts in Russia are carrying out tests on the feline which now has seven ears. Its owners in the Samara region said they first noticed the kitten had an extra ear growing just inside one of its normal ears when it was born. But months later they discovered another two small ears inside one normal ear and two more on its cheek. The owners said the kitten is otherwise completely normal and laps up its milk like every other cat.

The seven-eared feline is not the first animal born with bizarre genetic abnormalities in the Samara region. In 2000 a calf was born with two heads and with two heads and farmers reported a chicken with four legs was laying eggs with two yolks. Experts have said poor farm food used in the area could be behind the genetic malformations. — “Kitten grows seven ears,” Metro Café, 7 Aug 2004.
