Kitten has two faces and three eyes (Video)

A KITTEN with two faces and three eyes was born in Eastern Cape, South Africa, on Dec 12. Named Bettie Bee, she has four paws, a tail and two ears like other kittens.

Bettie Bee is a rare two-faced cat or "Janus Cat". In ancient Roman religion and mythology, Janus is the god of beginnings and transitions. It has two faces.

Its double face made it difficult for her to nurse. She could have started to die. The cat-owner brought it to a nearby cat rescuer who is known for taking in special-needs cats.

The rescuer, who wishes to remain anonymous, started tube-feeding the kitten. She wrote in an email to Newsweek that she "can feed either mouth, both are functional, both lead to the stomach."

The rescuer started a Facebook page for Bettie Bee with pictures and updates.
