Deuces Wild

We here at Urbanatime are big into pairs. Pairs of shoes, pairs of pants, pairs of faces. Thanks to a write in from a loyal reader, we can learn about more pairs.

Kitten Born With Two Faces

UPDATED: 10:11 am EST March 10, 2005

LAKE CITY, Fla. -- 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.

Wednesday morning, Morrison named the cat "Deuce."

So now I'm wondering about the advantages of having 2 faces. Like, could you makeout with your other face? Want to see the video of this freak show
