At 6:11 a.m. on 6/11, a kitten named Deucy came into the world. The rare cat, born under the sign of the Twins (Gemini), has one body and a pair of furry little faces.
Deucy's owner, Stephanie Durkee of Amity, Oregon, has been caring for the two-faced feline since she was rejected by her mother yesterday morning. While the survival rate of these so-called "Janus" cats (named after the Roman god with two heads) is low, a vet who has seen Deucy says that she is healthy and strong.
Massachusetts feline Frank and Louie currently holds the Guinness Record as the longest living Janus cat in the world. The extraordinary kitty clinched the title after celebrating his 12th birthday in 2011.
