Two heads may be better than one, but it seems the odds are against this two-faced kitten in Brazil.
A house cat in Balneário Camboriú gave birth to a rare kitty with two faces Monday after having a litter of four normal cats the night before, according to local reports.
The result of a cell division anomaly, two-faced kittens -- or Janus cats -- are often born with internal abnormalities, which drastically reduce their likelihood of surviving past the first few days.
Earlier this year, another two-faced kitten was born in Oregon. At the time, a local veterinarian examined the animal, named Deucy, and determined the newborn's organs were intact. Though she was said to be in good condition, the two-faced kitten died two days after her birth.
A two-headed cat named Frankenlouie set the world record for oldest Janus cat when he turned 12 in 2011.
As Guarda-Sol reports, the kitten's owner, Clarice Santos, is seeking help to care for the two-faced kitty in the hopes of extending its life.
