Two-faced Kitten Born in Perth

A kitten with two faces was born yesterday at a veterinary clinic in Perth, Australia. A newspaper photographer was at the clinic to shoot pictures of greyhounds when the birth occurred, and took the opportunity to snap pictures of the newborn kitten.
Louisa Burgess, a veterinary nurse who helped deliver the kitten, told InMyCommunity.com.au that she had never seen such an unusual animal in her 12-year career.

"I have seen cats with two tails and extra legs, but not this,” she said.

Ms Burgess said the cat appeared healthy, but it would be closely monitored over the next few days.

"It has a full tummy and it survived the night so that is a good sign,” she said. "It seems content, it meows and purrs.

The kitten's two mouths meow simultaneously. In a radio interview (included with the story), it was revealed that the kitten has only one brain. http://www.theage.com.au/national/twofaced-kitten-born-in-perth-20081120-6cpv.html -Thanks, Jayne Howley!
