Deucy the Two Faced Cat is Born and Set to Take the Internet By Storm

twoface14n-3-web

A rare, two-faced kitten was born in Amity, Oregon on Tuesday. Stephanie Durkee, the owner of both the female kitten and its mother, took the two-faced cat to a vet, who say she’s in good health. Durkee told Portland’s KGW-TV the kitten—named “Deucy”—has been rejected by her mother, so she’s been feeding her warmed kitten formula from a syringe.

“The kids … came in and said, ‘Mom there’s a kitty with two heads,'” Durkee told Portland’s NBC affiliate. “And I said, ‘I think you guys are just tired, you’re crazy, that doesn’t happen.'” Durkee, who plans to keep Deucy, says the kitten was born at “6:11 a.m. on 6/11 under the ‘Gemini’ astrological sign.” Durkee said she “can’t help but wonder at the ‘double’ coincidences surrounding Deucy’s birth.”

Two-faced cats—known as Janus cats, for the two-faced Roman god who also gave us the word “January”—are unusual but not unprecedented.
