Here is Frankie (Frankenkitten), as you will notice, Frankie is a little different. He has four ears and had to have one of his eyes removed. However, if you tell him that he doesn’t meet the standard, Frankie probably won’t understand you. After going through all that fate has thrown at him, the little boy has adapted to life in the big world and his host family is there to help him when he feels a little overwhelmed. Frankie was born with four ears in a suburban home where he was found with another brother
“He was born in a suburban home to a wild mother,” said Georgi Anderson, owner of Frankie, “He was found with a living brother, but there may be others who did not survive. The owners invited Frankie and his brother for several weeks to socialize and fatten them up before bringing them to the shelter for medical treatment and repatriation. ”
His four ears are the first things people see in it. “Frankie also has a very large overbite which gives his face a very angular appearance. He entered the animal shelter with 2 eyes, but one eye was seriously injured and had to be removed. Frankie also has joint problems in the hind legs – his knees are not well seated, so he walks with legs indented and his knees often slide in and out. “
Frankie also has a large overbite which gives his face an angular appearance
“Because of the overbite, his lower canines pierced his upper mouth. He also needs knee surgery to stabilize the joints, but I’m saving money for that, it’s pretty expensive, “said Georgi. “He also had dental procedures to cut his canines less than a few mm above the gum line.”
“Frankie entered the animal shelter with 2 eyes, but one eye was injured and had to be removed”
“The removal of the eye allowed him to survive because the infection became septic and killed it.”
“I was working at the animal shelter when Frankie entered. I was also a foster carer, so I was asked to feed him for a week while he recovered from the removal of his eye. ”
“It was not so much his peculiar appearance that was sold to me – it was his gentle demeanor, the way frankie explored his surroundings and that sought to comfort me”
“I went to see him before the procedure and I was immediately struck by his sweetness. After a few hours back home, I knew he was special and I couldn’t describe it. “
“The physical aspect of his condition has an impact on his daily life. The small front ears slightly affect his directional hearing, as they act almost like a small earmuff for his own ears. He adapted well to only one eye, but I can say that his night vision is not as good as that of my other cats. His legs make him walk barefoot but do not cause pain and do not affect the way he plays or jumps. His mouth is probably the most important physical factor – He has a hard time eating wet foods because he can’t grasp them well. He only had a dry diet and learned to take kibble with his tongue and put it in his mouth that way rather than using his teeth. “
“A normal day for Frankie is choosing different places to curl up and sleep taking me every morning while I prepare breakfast. He likes to try to climb on my leg and then run away like crazy.
“Playing with his brother Lucius Malfoy. Annoy his older brothers and sisters Minako and Toothless ”
“Frankie sleeps a little more … much more. Then annoys the dogs. It’s a very cheeky character ”
“His personality is very cheeky, but Frankie gets away with it because it’s also very nice. He is not overly intelligent, which has been noticed in some other 4-eared cats. I doubt it’ll do well outside. He would see a car and think it was something to play with. But he is so loving and affectionate and seems to feel when I have had a difficult day. I would almost say that he has a dog personality ”.
Frankie is living proof that the beauty of a pet resides in it. He and his humans are lucky to know each other and something tells me everything will be fine.
