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.
