A Two-Faced Kitten Survives Against All Odds
Three small kittens were born to a South African cat in December 2017. It made her owner quite happy, and up until he saw one of the kittens, he didn’t think anything strange about it. The kitty actually had two faces, each with four eyes and two jaws!
The kitten was diagnosed with craniofacial duplication after being taken to the veterinarian right away. The two-faced ancient Roman god Janus gave the so-called “Janus” cats their name, but their chances of surviving aren’t very good. The owner opposed his advice to put the kitten to sleep. He brought the kitten home, giving it the name Bettie Bee.
Bettie fought valiantly over the following days and started crawling like her siblings, despite the veterinarian not giving her any chances. Obviously, it requires daily care, but the owner didn’t mind. The two-faced kitten opened its eyes a few days later, right as her two eyes began to blend. Here is a clip showing Bettie Bee moving about like a typical kitten.
Bettie was 200 grams when she was 10 days old, which is typical for a 10-day-old kitten. But only a few days later, Betting became ill with pneumonia and passed away. Bettie passed away at the vet after 16 days in peace. After the cat died, the owner didn’t delete Bettie Bee’s Facebook page. To prove to the world that everyone deserves a shot, he made the decision to keep it.
Even though the special kitten only survived for 16 days, But those were days filled with love.
