Lilly, a six-month old black and white house cat with four ears is seen in a home for animals in Murnau, southern Germany on March 24, 2004. 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 six months ago with the genetic defect.

What an awesome cat, maybe he should hook up with the X-men.

What about this guy, does he have twice the brain power, or twice the mad cow, you decide...;)

Knowing how much a cat loves to be scratched behind the ears, this cat is doubly blessed.

scientifically speaking, 1/2 less sound vibration would enter each normal ear. Also, is each ear completely seperate. If the two external ears share the same inner ear parts, then the sound may be interpreted incorrectly by the cat due to the slightly different angles of reception of the ears.

My guess is that at least one pair of ears are not functional, or the two are connected to just one pair of internal organs. which will probably produce the effects said by boiker...

Although, I've seen things freakier than a two headed calf or a 4 eared kitten... how about the head of a calf with 4 eyes, 2 noses, one mouth and 2 ears... try explaining that to a 10 year old kid... oh, and I saw it with my own eyes, not through a picture... so photoshop is out of the question.

the rear set are tissue structure only...the report likened the ears to the 7th toes some cats have.
