Healthy kitten born with two faces
A very rare kitten was born yesterday in Amity, a small town in Oregon. The little female came out with one body, one set of organs and two faces.
NWCN.com reports the kitten’s owner, Stephanie Durkee, is keeping the little girl she named Deucy since the kitten’s mother rejected her.
Deucy was born at 6:11 a.m. on 6/11. The veterinarian who checked Deucy out said she looks healthy. But Durkee has to hand-feed the day-old kitten with a syringe and is being kept in a dresser drawer with a heating pad and towels.
Cats with two faces are known as Janus cats, named after the Roman god. The oldest surviving Janus cat is “Frank and Louie,” from Massachusetts. He lived until he was 12 years old and is in the Guinness Book of World Records.
