Astonishing Cat With Two Faces Is A Real Cat, Not A Hoax!

Meet Frank and Louie – also referred to as Frankenlouie. This feline possessed two nearly separate faces due to a congenital condition known as diprosopia. He is a “Janus” cat or “two-faced” – named after the Roman god Janus who was portrayed as having two faces. This condition is exceedingly rare in domestic cats.

The cat has two functioning eyes, a blind central eye which did not blink, two noses, two mouths (only one is functional because the other did not develop a bottom jaw) and one brain! When he was born, Frank and Louie was not expected to survive but veterinary nurse Martha Stevens took the kitten home anyway and cared for him. He required lots of attention but eventually learned to eat on his own and became strong enough to play with other cats. He even liked to go on leashed walks around his neighborhood.

In 2012, the Guinness Book of World Records recognized Frank and Louie as the oldest living janus cat. This was a rare distinction because most janus animals die within a few days. The fact that Frank and Louie grew to be a healthy adult cat is absolutely remarkable!

He eventually died at the age of 15 due to cancer. But Frank and Louie will always be remembered as the cat who defied odds and lived a long, happy life despite his condition.
