AN­I­MAL res­cuers couldn’t be­lieve their eyes when they found a kit­ten with four ears.

Frankie, a 10-week-old do­mes­tic short hair, was res­cued from un­der a Gee­long house, and has since had an eye re­moved af­ter be­ing brought into Gee­long An­i­mal Wel­fare So­ci­ety.

Adop­tive owner Ge­orgie An­der­son said it wasn’t every day the shel­ter came across a four-eared, one-eyed cat.

“He came into GAWS with his brother af­ter be­ing found liv­ing un­der a house. He had a very de­formed eye which re­quired surgery to re­move but he’s do­ing re­ally well,” she said.

“I’ve re­searched it to see if it’s a ge­netic fault but it’s so rare there’s not much writ­ten about them.”

Frankie’s un­usual ap­pear­ance hasn’t both­ered Mrs An­der­son’s three­year-old son Arthur (above), with the pair be­com­ing firm friends. “They’re great to­gether,” she said. – ERIN PEAR­SON
