Frank and Louie

The cat has two mouths, two noses and two working eyes. A third eye in the middle is not functional. Marty named her cat “Frank and Louie” so each face would have a name. Only one mouth, the one on the cat’s right side — or Frank’s side — is connected to an esophagus, so Frank gets all the food.

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.

Harvey Dent (31 January - 2 February 2012)


There's a new two-faced character in the world, and he's a lot cuddlier than Aaron Eckhart. Newborn Janus cat Harvey Dent has four eyes, two noses, two mouths, and one appropriate name.

Little Harvey was born in this week in Port Charlotte, Fla. Janus cats are frequently plagued with health issues, which can be especially pronounced if the cat has a duplicated esophagus. Fortunately, all of Harv's duplicated parts seem to be working, and he has a role model for the long-lived Janus: Frank and Louie, the 12-year-old two-faced cat who was recently won a spot in the Guinness World Records. Still, the owners are continuing monitor him for health problems, even as neighbors are complaining that their "abomination" of a black cat should be put down.
