If the Dark Knight had a feline companion, it might resemble this adorable kitty. Yoda, a family pet belonging to Valerie and Ted Rock, was born with an extraordinary feature – an extra pair of ears! The couple adopted Yoda in Chicago after spotting him at a local bar where he was being passed around by curious patrons. Since then, the furry friend has found a forever home with the Rocks, who took him in along with his littermates when their owners were looking for loving families to adopt them.
Yoda, a house cat with a unique feature of having four ears since birth, won the hearts of a couple at a pub in Chicago. The cat was being passed around in a small cage, and the owners were looking for a new home for him. The couple had lost their pet cat of 20 years and thought they didn’t want any more pets. However, when Yoda crawled up to the crook of Ted’s neck and fell asleep, they knew they had to adopt him. They named him Yoda after the Star Wars character and got him checked out by a vet after bringing him home to Illinois. Valerie, one of Yoda’s owners, has also found out that the legendary character was based on George Lucas’ own cat.
Valerie Rock became the owner of Yoda after finding him being passed around in a Chicago bar. However, upon taking him to the vet, they were amazed by his unique appearance. According to Valerie, the vet had never seen anything like it and had to resort to searching the internet for answers. It turned out that Yoda’s four ears were a rare phenomenon that was only seen in Germany. Other vets that Valerie spoke with also confirmed that they had never encountered such a creature before. Due to his distinctiveness, Yoda has been kept indoors, and a microchip has been installed in case he gets lost or catnapped. Despite having an extra pair of “flaps,” Yoda’s behavior and hearing are normal, as confirmed by Valerie. She enjoys showing off her feline companion, and people often do a double-take when they see him or his pictures.
Meet Yoda, the feline character from Star Wars whom this cat was named after. Some people have speculated that his unique appearance is due to cosmetic surgery, but in reality, he is just a normal and friendly cat who brings joy to those around him. Unlike some cats, he is not afraid of anything and is very sociable. However, one of his quirks is his love for bread – his owners can’t leave any on the counter for even a moment. When he purrs, it’s barely audible, and the only way to confirm that he’s doing so is to feel the vibrations with your finger. He’s also not very vocal, which is a good thing for those who prefer quieter pets.
