Two frightened and malnourished kittens were found shivering under a house and rescued by Geelong Welfare Animal Society (GAWS)  A quick examination found that one of the kittens, to be named Frankie, had a malformed eye and 2 sets of ears!

Vets had to remove the eye, and then GAWS nursed the kitten back to health. The 10-week-old Frankie recovered well and is now happy and healthy, romping about like any other kitten his age.

Frankie’s four ears, however, remain a mystery. This is such a rare congenital anomaly that the literature on it is incredibly sparse.  This little fighter doesn’t care about literature anyway and fails to be self-conscious in the least.

Frankie (short for Frankenkitty) found a forever home with the woman who named him, Georgia Anderson. He bonded well with her young son and is well on his way to mastering happiness in his new life. Frankie even has his very own Instagram page  @frank_n_kitten.

Frankie’s story immediately went viral and almost 3000 people now follow his Instagram and send their love to him every day. His sweetness deserves every bit of that.

Anderson shares her attempts at creating an eye patch for Frankie, but Frankie has rejected most of her inventions. Kittens can be stubborn!
