This is Frank and Louie, the well-known two-faced kitty that lived in Massachusetts who passed away in December 2014 at the age of 15. Two-faced cats are known as Janus cat – named for the Roman god Janus, that was portrayed as having two faces, according to National Geographic. Most animals that have this birth abnormality don’t live that long – but Frank and Louie lived a long, happy life!
Leslie Lyons from the University of Missouri’s Department of Veterinary Medicine said the cause of Janus cats isn’t fully understood. Frank and Louie was a ragdoll, but Lyons doesn’t think that breeding plays a role in the condition because it is so rare. Mary Stevens, Frank and Louie’s mommy decided to take the cat home so it wouldn’t be euthanized. Watch the video below to learn more.
