A biologist from Voronezh found a cat with five ears in the street and brought it home to study and perhaps breed.
"The cat has two normal ears, two extra ears are turned 180 degrees and there is a tiny fifth ear," said Vladimir Obryvkov of the Voronezh State University of Agriculture.
The scientist, who has been studying animal anomalies for years, took the cat to X-ray its unusual ears but decided to take her home to his children.
Obryvkov said that the cat named Luntya also has big paws but her behavior does not differ from that of normal cats.
He also said that he wants to mate his new pet with a four-eared cat living in Vladivostok to create a new breed of these fluffy animals.
Obryvkov has already studied a calf with two heads, tails and hearts, a one-eyed lamb, chickens with four legs, conjoined pigs, and a colt with two noses and three eyes.

While the sides continue to trade tough talk and symbolic sanctions, the Kremlin and the White House are also holding a parallel dialogue on the coordinated geopolitical revision of Eastern Europe.
