His upbringing included a cage in a suburban Chicago bar where customers poked fun at his appearance.

But since Yoda the four-eared cat's photo was posted on a Web site, the smoke-colored feline has found fame.

Yoda's owners, Ted and Valerie Rock, rescued him from the bar.

They say that since their son posted Yoda's picture, they've fielded calls from "Good Morning America," "Fox News" and "The Tyra Banks Show."

The Rocks say the media attention is amazing, and their phone is ringing off the hook.
