Astrophile : “Oh what a cutie pie! I wonder if she can hear?”

LakotaWolf (she/her) : “Yes, she can! I wondered the same thing, so I investigated. Apparently this pup’s name is Rae (“ear” spelled backwards) and her mom was too rough trying to remove her placenta when she was born, so her mom accidentally injured her and one ear had to be removed. No one expected the ear to move to the top of her head! But the “ear migration” did not affect her hearing, nor does it discomfort her in any way, according to her owners. So, she is the goodest magical golden unicorn girl who can hear just fine!”

dayngerkat : “So I had to find out more about this little guy. His eye was removed due to being deformed and infected. He got his name from the stitches after surgery. The extra 2 ears are “pinna” and have no internal parts, so he can’t hear extra out of them. He has dental problems and will need surgery when he gets older. Poor little guy. So much pain, but living the life now!”
