The rare Janus cat
Ever heard of a Janus cat ? If you haven't it's a cat with two faces, yes it's for real although extremely rare. Frank & Louie is one such cat that just passed away at the incredible old age for a cat like this at 15. Generally they don't live very long at all so he really beat the odds. I'm not at all sure what I think of keeping animals like this, worrying that they just become a novelty, something to stare at. I'm sure Frank & Louie had a wonderful life with his devoted owner. With the proliferation of images online we now get to see all sorts of truly bizarre things including animals severely compromised with cruel and sometimes hideous birth defects. I can't help but wonder about the people who choose to keep them and go to great lengths and expense to give them a life where once upon a time the kindest thing to do would be to euthanase.
