Luntik: The amazing cat with four ears

A three-month-old kitten living in Vladivostok, Russia was born with a peculiar set of additional ears.

While having four ears might seem very useful to have unfortunately the two additional ones aren't capable of hearing. Cats with four ears are very rare but not unheard of, another example is a cat called Yoda in Chicago with a set of secondary ears even larger than those sported by newcomer Luntik.

"The brief Seventies craze for quadraphonic sound might have lasted a little longer if there were more cats like Luntik around."

When my cat was a kitten she had the biggest ears I had ever seen on a kitty, they were like satilite dishes on her little head and the longest tail and then... she grew in to them. She is so tall she can comfortably set her head on the kitchen table with her back paws still on the floor. BIG CAT!

Hm.. doesn't really look so much like extra vestigial ears, as much as that little flap on the ears is over grown. Still, yeah, cute kitty.
