It’s a modern version of the ugly duckling fable – Midas was born atypical. He is a cat with double ears that make him look strongly unusual. Initially unwanted by no one, he is now taking Instagram by storm.

Midas is a few months old Russian Blue cat. His homeless mother gave birth to him and his six siblings in the garden of one of the houses in Turkey.

#Happy Kitten

The kitten probably has no idea he’s a star, but that’s not what’s important – what’s important is that he’s loved and happy, as you can clearly see in the photos.
