THE FINAL FRONT EAR(S)
As hearing aids go, they don't come better than this. Meet Yoda, the two-year-old moggie who was born with four ears. Valerie and Ted Rock took him under their wing when they spotted him as a kitten sitting on a pub bar. 'We'd just lost a cat of 20 years, and we were sure we were done with cats,' said Mrs Rock, 65. 'But when Yoda was passed round and he crawled up to Ted's neck and fell asleep - Ted was a goner.' The US couple, from Chicago, had him microchipped and keep him indoors because they were worried he might be stolen. Mrs Rock added: 'We've had people ask if we had his ears cut to look this way. But they're all natural.'
