Cat with Two Faces Enters Record Book
A cat named Frank and Louie was entered into the Guinness World Record for becoming the longest-living two-faced cat in the world.
A freaky feline slinked its way into the record books by becoming the longest-living two-headed cat in the world.
“Frank and Louie,” a member of an exotic breed of two-faced cats known as Janus cats, was officially crowned the longest-surviving member of its breed by Guinness World Records after turning 12 on Sept. 8.
The creepy kitty has two mouths, two noses and three eyes, but only one brain, caused by a rare birth defect known as diprosopia. The condition occurs in many animals, including humans.
He eats and purrs out of the right side of his face, or the “Frank side,” owner Marty Stevens said.
Stevens, who lives in Worchester, Mass., said Frank and Louie nearly lost all nine lives as a newborn when his original owner visited the Tufts University vet clinic where she worked a dozen years ago.
