Apparently it is doing quite well! Found this in my old local paper.

Oh, my! I've never heard of such a thing!!!! He's actually very pretty...

It's actually kind of sad too...the product of some kind of bogus breeding attempt, perhaps. But hey, if he's healthy and leads a normal cat life, who am I to say anything?

Wow! He sounds like a sweetheart though. I'm so glad he has such a devoted human to take care of him.

That is strange to see.... I am glad he lived. I guess that shows the true power of TLC... It's wonderful that she was able to save him and give him a normal cat life.

Who knows how it happens.. I personally think it's some kind of siamese twin thing. I was wondering if each side has a different purrsonality.. She has named it frankie and louie.

I am more than surprised to hear of a two-faced cat living to see adulthood. They usually have internal problems/a difficult time nursing and die shortly after birth.

It is just a deformity. It happens quite a bit with moggies, too (in fact this is the first purebred-looking cat I've seen like that, although there have likely been more out there. Hopefully the dam/sire/both were fixed after producing that kitten.

There's an aticle that pulls at your heartstrings. I wish I could see the looks on people's faces when she takes her kitty to Petco and pushes him in the buggy.

Ya know, sometimes I go to that particular petsmart.. Never seen it. Next time I go to that one I'm going to have to ask the staff.

I dont understand the last paragraph... It refers to him as a kitten and "removed by his mother"......Is he missing now ???


"Meanwhile, the Ohio two-faced kitten has disappeared. It had a scheduled appointment with a veterinarian on July 15, but the family could not find the kitten that morning. A house door was found open, leading to speculation that it had been stolen or died in the night and was removed by its mother."

That part is about ANOTHER cat that was born recently with the same disfigurement. It was all over the news, which is what made this woman tell the story of her cat that has lived to be 6 years old.

The poor kitten from the news is the one missing now.

That is a very touching story. It still makes me sad though. Bless his sweet little heart. Poor baby!! I'm glad to know he is a very happy and healthy kitty and that the other cats and dog love him too.

Just the thought of it makes me sad, thinking that it may not live that long, I just feel sorry for the poor baby

Sad about the cat, he is cute though. Funny the picture looks very Photoshoped to me... not that I don't believe it, I know this kind of thing can happen, but the picture just looks very odd.
