There are lots of cats in the world. However, there is only one two-faced cat that is in the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records.
Let’s meet him.
It’s one cat, but he has two faces; therefore, he has two names: Frank and Louie.
Frank and Louie was born with two faces, two mouths, two noses, and three eyes. The cat is now 12-years-old and is owned by Marty Stevens in Worcester, Massachusetts who saved him from being put to sleep because of his condition.
Frank and Louie is the longest surviving member of a group known as Janus cats, named after a Roman god with two faces.
According to a report, Ms. Stevens said:
“Every day is a kind of a blessing; being 12 and normal life expectancy when they have this condition is one to four days. So, he’s ahead of the game; every day I just thank God I still have him.”
Janus cats almost never survive and most have congenital defects, including a cleft palate that makes it difficult for them to nurse and often causes them to slowly starve or get milk in their lungs and die of pneumonia. The condition is the result of a genetic defect that triggers excessive production of a certain kind of protein.
Frank and Louie did not suffer from most of the common Janus problems.
