Kitten Born With Two Faces

WFTV: Kitten Born With Two Faces


When Teresa Morrison's cat had a litter Tuesday, she noticed something was different about one of the kittens.

"I thought it had growth on its face," she said.

The kitten has two mouths, two noses and four eyes. She immediately called her veterinarian.

"He said he's never seen it. Never," Morrison said.

The kitten is nursing from its mother, which the vet said is a good sign.

"(She's) feeding off one mouth now; sometimes go to the other one, but he's not getting it open," Morrison said.

The vet told Morrison he didn't know if the cat has one or two brains, but having one would give the cat a better chance to survive. He said if the kitten lives 48 hours, he has a good chance of living a full life.

MY HEART GOES OUT TO BOTH THE PRECIOUS, LITTLE KITTEN, AND IT'S CAREGIVERS. I MYSELF HAVE A 17 POUND, CALICO CAT WHICH WAS THE ONLY SURVIVOR OUT OF A LITTER OF 6 KITTENS BORN JUNE 3, 1999. THE MOTHER ALSO DIED 3 DAYS AFTER DELIVERING THE KITTENS BY CEASEREAN SECTION. HOW APPROPRIATE THAT YOU NAMED THE LITTLE ONE "GEMINI"! WE NAMED OUR PRECIOUS ONE THE COMBINATION OF THE FACT THAT SHE "SQUEEKED" WHEN SHE STARTED TO TRY MEOW, AND THE FACT THAT IT WAS A "MIRACLE" SHE WAS THE ONLY SURVIVOR. HENCE WE NAMED HER "MISS SQUEEKY MIRACLE"!
I HOPE THAT YOU WILL KEEP THE PUBLIC UP TO DATE ON HOW "YOUR LITTLE MIRACLE IS DOING"!
YOU ALL, AND "GEMINI" ARE IN OUR THOUGHTS, AND PRAYERS.

BRENDA OUTLAND, AND SQUEEKY(=^V^=)

Hey, I just want to say that even though I don't know this kitten personally, I already love it. Deformed people and animals have my love almost instantly, I just love that when people are born and you see them and they have to do something crazy like share their body, it's so amazing how their relationship works so great. I just want to say that I love this kitten so much, you should put some videos of it now on the site www.youtube.com
I'de love to see her more.
