Meet Midas, an adorable cat, born with two sets of ears who is going viral online
The four-eared four-month-old Russian Blue cat spends most of her time cuddling with the family’s two Labradors as well as playing and napping.
Not only do her ears make her unique looking, but she also has a white patch in the shape of a heart on her belly.
Midas’s Instagram has nearly 40k followers, and it was only created three weeks ago!
Her extra ears are due to a genetic mutation, but it doesn’t affect her health in any negative way.
Her mother was a stray who gave birth to Midas and six others in a garden who belonged to a friend of Canis, Midas’s human.
She is best friends with the family dog Suzy.
Midas appeared on Instagram three weeks week after she was adopted by Canis and her partner.
Her mother, who was a stray cat, gave birth to Midas and her six siblings in a garden that belonged to a friend of Canis, who took the kitten on.
Just to make sure, Midas will undergo extra health checks from the vet to make sure there are no other genetic mutations in her body.
Midas has been settling well in her new home, often found napping in her bed or playing with her siblings and toys.
“She is a very playful cat. But very friendly as well,” said Canis. ” sleeps all day and is awake all night.”
“She loves to sleep on my chest or shoulder. She loves to play with yarns, (we have loads of them because of my business), she steals them and hides them somewhere we could never find.”
