Bizarre Cat Surprises Everyone as She Has 2 Noses, She’s Called Nanny McPhee

A unique cat with a huge nose has stunned her new caregivers at an animal shelter in England, after it was discovered she actually has two noses.

The feline is named Nanny McPhee after the fictional film character and was given to Cats Protection Adoption Centre in Warrington, Cheshire, after her owner’s ill health meant they could no longer care for pet.

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 schnoz was caused by a congenital abnormality—but the black and white cat has suffered no ill effects from it.

“A cat with two noses is a first for us,” said veterinary officer Fiona Brockbank. “This is a real rarity and, thankfully, it isn’t causing her any problems at all.

“Like all of our cats, Nanny McPhee will be neutered before re-homing so any concerns about inherited problems are resolved as she won’t have kittens.” Shelter manager Lindsay Kerr believes the petite cat will find a new home quickly because of her two noses.

“We have all fallen in love with our one-of-a-kind Nanny McPhee,” she said. “We can’t stop looking at her two noses!

Other congenital malformations near the nose of a cat such as a cleft lip and cleft palate are not uncommon and can either be inherited or due to incidents while developing in the uterus.

“She has proven to be a gentle lady who adores a fuss and a cuddle and we are hopeful her newfound fame will mean she will have no shortage of potential adopters, so she can settle down and become the center of a loving family.”
