Adult Cat with two faces

While writing the previous post about "two face" , I came across a video featuring an adult male cat - named Loui - with two faces. Unbelievable..


Loui has a condition called Diprosopus. Diprosopus (also known as craniofacial duplication) is an extremely rare congenital disorder whereby parts or all of the face are duplicated on the head. 

Most animals with Diprosopus die - or are euthanized - way before reaching adulthood. An adult animal with the condition is a truly rare sight!
