Report: Two-faced kitten dies
A kitten born with two faces in Charleston, W.Va., has died, according to a report in PeoplePets.com, an affiliate of People Magazine.
Two Face was born in a litter of six on June 8 with a rare condition called diprosopus, which means the animal had two faces – four eyes, two noses and two mouths.
The kitten was taken to a local animal hospital shortly after being born, where veterinarian Erika Drake told the owners Jeffrey and Tammy Oxley the kitten had little chance of surviving, the report said.
"Both mouths would meow independent of each other, and at the time, she — they, I'm not sure which — did drink from each mouth without any trouble," Drake told People Pets. "What the main thing is, if there are other abnormalities inside, we don't know. You can't tell without having some imaging there."
Two Face had seemed to be doing well, the owners told PeoplePets.com, but sometime on the afternoon of June 10, it stopped moving. The other kittens in the litter are doing well.
