    Default Luntik, the four-eared Russian cat‎

    The brief Seventies craze for quadraphonic sound might have lasted a little longer if there were more cats like Luntik around.
    The three-month-old kitten who lives in a garage in Vladivostok, Russia, has a 'spare' pair of vestigial ears just in front of his real ones.
    It's not a completely unique condition. There's a cat called Yoda living in Chicago with an even bigger pair of spare lugholes.
    Two? Hah! I've got four... Luntik gives his reply to anyone who says he looks a bit odd

    I'll be dog-gone: A stunned dog catches sight of the kitten, who lives in a garage in Vladivostok, Russia

    Unlike the widespread reports of 'winged cats' - which are usually just the result of wishful thinking and extremely matted fur - Luntik really does have a fully formed extra pair of ears.
    However, they don't have any of the internal 'plumbing' that would actually make them workable.
    Best leave those old Pink Floyd LPs up in the loft then.

    Two too much: Luntik's second pair of ears are purely 'decorative' as they have no ear canals

    Actually I think it looks quite good with the extra set of mini-ears. Looks very regal and 'please bitches' in the last pic.

    Is Vladivostok close to Chernobyl? He's cute though.

    I'm a little concerned about the dog behind the kitteh in the second picture. He looks like he's about to pounce.

    no, vladivostok lies in the east, close to the border with north korea and china. a city famous for its port. it's also the terminus of the trans-siberian railway.

    apparently he was named after a russian cartoon character :



    «The Adventures of Luntik» or simply «Luntik» is a Russian animated series for children of preschool age. It is the story of a small fluffy creature, Luntik, who was born on the Moon and fell from it, on to the Earth. Luntik is the main character and each episode features a story about him and his friends. Luntik is new to the Earth and in each episode he learns something about this new world. He meets new friends, learns how to be polite and even gets a family. The majority of the characters in the series are small animals: insects, fish, frogs etc. The show features both adult and children characters. The series are shown from the child's perspective and the stories are very kind and warm. Even the "villains" of the series - two caterpillars - are just a couple of mischievous kids. Each episode is only 6 minutes long and has a finished story line. The premiere took place on September, 1st, 2006 on television channel "Russia"..
