A comical moggy with an unusually big conk has stunned her new carers after it was discovered she actually has – TWO noses.
The animal – named Nanny McPhee after the fictional film character – was given to the Cats Protection Adoption Centre in Warrington, Cheshire.
Staff at first thought she just had a large nose, but a check-up by vets revealed the four-year-old moggy actually had two noses.
It is believed the ‘one-of-a-kind’ second schnozz was caused by a congenital abnormality and the black and white cat has suffered no ill effects from it.
Field veterinary officer Fiona Brockbank said: “This is a real rarity and, thankfully, it isn’t causing her any problems at all.
“A cat with two noses is a first for us in the field vet team.
“Other congenital malformations within that area of a cat such as a cleft lip and cleft palate are not uncommon and can either be inherited or due to incident whilst developing in the uterus.
“Like all of our cats, Nanny McPhee will be neutered before rehoming so any concerns about inherited problems are resolved as she won’t have kittens.”
Nanny McPhee was given to the centre with two other cats after their owner’s ill health meant they could no longer care for them.
Manager Lindsay Kerr believes the cat will find a new home quickly because of her two noses.
She said: “We have all fallen in love with our one-of-a-kind Nanny McPhee.
“We can’t stop looking at her two noses!
“She has proven to be a gentle lady who adores a fuss and a cuddle and we are hopeful her new-found fame will mean she will have no shortage of potential adopters.
“She really does deserve a home where she can settle down and become the center of a loving family.”
