Rare, But Healthy Two-Faced Kitten Born In Oregon

Here's a cat who requires a double take. According to Metro UK, a two-faced feline was born in Amity, Oregon, with a clean bill of health.



Even with an extra set of eyes, the unusual feline found herself lost in our big world shortly after birth. Stephanie Durkee and her children discovered the kitten wandering close to her home, rejected by its mother.

"The kids actually found them and came in and said, 'Mom, there's a kitty with two heads,' and I said, 'I think you guys are just tired, you're crazy, that doesn't happen,'" Durkee explained to Metro UK.

Seeing that the newborn would need extra help, Durkee and her family took the cat in and named her Duecy. Worried about what two heads meant for Duecy's one body, Durkee took the cat to the vet after discovering her.



The vets were shocked to see a rare, two-faced feline, also known as a Janus Cat, and were even more surprised to find that the kitten was in good health. Many Janus Cats experience complications shortly after birth. Unfortunately, most Janus cats die before adulthood, but Durkee has a feeling that Duecy could be one of those special exceptions.

Durkee plans to play the role of mom for Duecy, and she has already started bottle-feeding her new furry baby. When Duecy isn't amazing onlookers or getting a snack, she spends most her time curled up in a dresser drawer equipped with a blanket and heating pad.

I wonder if one head has more dominance over the other when it comes to walking or deciding to eat. It's very interesting.

Two Faced Presidents are not rare . as history states, all politicians tell you what you want to hear. not the Truth ! Term limitsare needed in all political office's no more then 2 terms in any office . let the Political Parisites get a job and earn a living for a change.

Did this poor kitty really die? Even if it did, I'm glad someone cared for and loved it while it was alive.

Why are some people complete idiots? This two headed kitten was probably supposed to be a twin but became conjoined. I think this is s precious kitten and just because she has two heads makes me no never mind. Ittim76, you really need to focus on this story at hand, this has nothing to do with politics. And gramazoo42, really? So if a human is born with two heads and survives, should it be put down too? I don't know what happened to compassion from our human race, I hate to say it but the majority of the humans these days are cruel and inhumane. this world is a cesspool with a lot of hate and evil in it, I'm just saying.
