Two-Faced Kitten: Rare 'Janus' Cat Born In US

A kitten owner had to do a double take when she realised her newborn feline had two faces.

Duecy was rejected by its mother so Stephanie Durkee is feeding her by hand.

She is giving her kitten formula with a syringe and keeping her warm with a heating pad.

Ms Durkee said: "The kids actually found them and came in and said, 'Mom there's a kitty with two heads', and I said I think you guys are just tired, you're crazy, that doesn't happen."

Duecy, who was born in Oregon on Tuesday, has been examined by a vet and everything appears to be in good working order.

She is a rare two-faced kitten, also known as a "Janus" kitten.
