Cat Born With Two Faces

two faced kitten

Lil’Bit is a special kitty. This seven-month-old cat was born with two faces.

When his owner first saw him, she was completely shocked, and veterinarians said that he would most likely not survive. But Lil’Bit’s owner had hope in her kitten.

She fed him every 15 minutes with an eye dropper for the first two to three months, and now he is doing well.

Lil’Bit has two mouths, two noses and four eyes, and one face can be sleeping while the other can remain awake. When he gets a cold, only one of his noses runs.

“When he purrs, it is like he is purring in stereo,” the Lil’Bit’s owner said.

This is not the first time that a cat has been born with two faces. Last July, a kitten was born with two faces in Ohio, and in March 2005, there was another two-faced kitten born in Florida.

    It’s almost like looking at a one of those pictures where at first you see one thing, then another.

    What a special person lil bit has for an owner. She felt this lil baby had a chance to make it and did her utmost to make sure that happened. Now that is something to be thankful for!

    Unusual for a kitty to have two faces but lots of humans have it. LOL

    But, hey, aminopterin, which causes some pretty nasty birth defects, wasn’t in any pet food. The FDA said so.

    Sorry, can’t resist, with two faces it would make a great politician. Seriously, I’m glad someone cared enough to make the effort, hope they have a long and loving life together.

    I hope this baby does well. Sounds like her owner is trying to take care of her. I suspect she will have some challenges, but then doesn’t everyone?

    Sorry, Don Earl, but I wouldn’t just assume that aminopterin is responsible without any evidence. Some birth defects just happen — for instance, mama could have had a low-level infection which can cause problems.

    It’s Thanksgiving. Can’t you people give it a break with the snarky and snide comments? Can’t you just wish the poor kitty good health and her pet parent well? Give it a rest. Shame on you.

    At least JJ and Pam have something positive to say.

    This is a beautiful kitten. Bless it and it’s human guardian.

    RE: “Sorry, Don Earl, but I wouldn’t just assume that aminopterin is responsible without any evidence.”

    Neither would I. When you get to a point where you’ve received as many emails from pet owners affected by the recall as I have, perhaps you’ll understand. Patterns start to develop and one of those patterns was a rash of birth defects in pets that were pregnant during the recall period.

    In spite of three different labs identifying aminopterin in pet food, the FDA wrote it off as something not worth investigating. So, for those who feel not wishing the FDA a Happy Thanksgiving is “snide”, I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree. Bad fellow that I am, I don’t plan on sending them Christmas cards this year either.

    Don Earl, I LOVE your style!

  11. Donna says:

    I wish the owner and the kitten all the best life has to offer.Iadmire the owners compassion and caring.It will come back,double fold. Bless you.

    Don Earl, realism best describes what you say about the pet food recalls and birth defects thereof. Very well put Don. We who are aware and educated of the REAL ingrediants of commercial pet foods know best.
