The cat with four ears from Turkey that went viral

Her name is Mida and she was born with four ears due to a genetic mutation. However, that did not stop the four-month-old kitten from exciting internet users, gathering more than 73,000 followers on social media.

The little kitten was born in a backyard in Ankara with her five siblings and was later adopted by Kanis Dosemetzi and her family. They say that they fell in love with the animal at first sight and wanted to take care of it immediately, worried that her chances of finding a home would be reduced due to her unique condition.

“We never thought of buying a cat, we just wanted to save a cat from the street and we wanted to adopt it,” said Dosemetzi, who also lives with two dogs, Zeino and Suzy.

Midas, whose name comes from the mythological king of Phrygia, has become an “star” of the internet thanks to the posts of its owners about her daily life with the two dogs.

Although her appearance may be unusual, her condition does not affect her health or hearing at all, according to  veterinarian Nuri Aslan.
Kanis Dosemetzi says she hopes Mida’s popularity can persuade other people to adopt animals rather than buy them in stores.

“People are so surprised, they can’t believe it,” she said.

“Everyone wants to come and see her or want photos of her.”

“Some people, on the other hand, find it scary, but in general people think it’s nice.”
