These Kittens Have Such Big, Floppy Ears That They Look Like Adorable Bats

By Amy Pilkington, Diply

While dog ears come in all shapes, sizes, and degrees of floppiness, cat ears tend to follow a much stricter mold. Triangular, sticking up, and mostly around the same size, regardless of breed.

Of course, that's just a general rule and there are some breeds that break the mold. Some have much fluffier fur around their ears and others might have ears that sit higher on the head.

In the case of the Oriental shorthair, their ears are notably large in comparison to their heads.

Oriental shorthairs are an off-shoot of the Siamese breed. Physically, they are very similar to Siamese, with their triangular faces, large ears, and long bodies, but while Siamese are only bred with a specific color of fur and markings, Oriental shorthairs come in a wide variety of coats.

But while the adults are very elegant, I'm here to talk about the babies.

Because, look at those ears!

It's like their ears grow far more rapidly than the rest of them, leaving their poor little bodies to play catch-up while the ears droop.

I mean, if you told me that this was a picture of a bat, I'd believe you.

It's a shame they eventually grow into their ears, because I can't stop admiring the adorable droopiness.

Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah bat-kitty!

As pets, Oriental shorthairs are playful and affectionate, but need their nutrition carefully monitored.

Due to their long torsos and legs, being overweight can be a serious health risk for them.

There are also Oriental longhairs, which are considered a separate breed, but they are much rarer right now.

I'd worry about feeding them after midnight.
