You're not seeing double. Again.

A rare, two-faced kitten was born in Amity, Ore., on Tuesday. Stephanie Durkee, the owner of both the female kitten and its mother, took the two-faced cat to a vet, who say she's in good health. (She meows "loudly from both mouths," according to the Guardian.)

Durkee told Portland's KGW-TV the kitten—named "Deucy"—has been rejected by her mother, so she's been feeding her warmed kitten formula from a syringe.

It’s strangely beautiful to look at. How long do cats with this condition usually live?

I heard today that the last one lived, I think,
about 10 years....

Usually only a few days, but some beat the odds. There’s a Janus cat in Massachusetts named Frank and Louis (one name per head) who is twelve years old and going strong.

Doesn’t seem to be in pain. The vet said she was healthy, in any case.

The zygote(?) didn’t properly split. Poor little kitty.

The kitten doesn’t seem to be in pain, and thanks to these nice people it’s getting a chance. All you can ask, really.

We had a 2 faced calf born on our ranch. WE don’t know if it was born dead or died shortly after birth. I have some very interesting pictures.

Actually, maybe not. We’re certain where this one was born. There is probably documentation.

I’d be curious to see those pix. Do you mind if I ask what you did with the carcass?

That's incredible, really. It makes me optimistic for the little Oregon kitten. Initially I was sure there would be medical/internal issues, but I guess it doesn't have to be that way.

Both faces seem to be well developed. I’m pulling for the little guy.

Apparently not the result of a zygote splitting. There is a protein called the sonic hedgehog protein mentioned in the Frank-and-Louie article.

I guess most of these creatures live only a little while, but Frank and Louie is still going strong. Good for them and for the owners. I hope this little kitten in Oregon grows strong and healthy.

I can understand why most 2-headed creatures are euthanized even if they don’t spontaneously expire soon after birth. Not sure what I’d do if a mama of mine gave birth to one of them. But I’m glad this baby in Oregon is being taken care of!
