Before the tiny creature had arrived at Geelong Animal Welfare Society, though, rescuers had found the baby cat – later named Frankie – cowering under a house along with his brother. And, naturally, they wanted to help the animals. However, when they first caught sight of Frankie, they may have received quite a shock.
After all, it was clear to see that the kitten was suffering from a number of genetic deformities. He had a malformed right eye, for one, as well as a large overbite. And most unusually of all, Frankie had two sets of ears.
Specifically, the kitten’s second pair of hearing organs were placed right in front of his first ones – and although they were smaller in size, the furry flaps were nevertheless fully formed. As a result, Frankie’s appearance caused quite the stir when he arrived at the Geelong shelter.
