Two-Faced Kitten, Named Biscuits And Gravy, Born In Oregon

Kyla King, from Portland, Oregon, woke up on Wednesday to check in on her pregnant cat to discover a litter of 6 newborn kittens.

She picked up each kitten, and when picking up the last kitten, she found herself face-to-face with two tiny noses and two pairs of eyes tightly shut.  

Kyla said she sent a picture to her husband, BJ King, with a text that read: "We have 6-1/3 kitty cats now!" BJ shared the news on their local community page, Albany Happenings.

"I said we'll probably get a little bit of reaction out of this and it took off really fast," BJ told Koin. Kyla reached out to their vet to learn more about their surprise kitten(s), and how to properly care for it. Unfortunately, there isn't much that could be done for the kite(s)n medically. All Kyla could do is make the kitten(s) comfortable and make sure the kitten(s) eats.

"It doesn't really know how to nurse properly because it has two mouths so I've been trying to feed it," Kyla said. 

The two-faced cat isn't the first of it's kind, it's actually known as a "Janus" cat. Named after the Roman god Janus often depicted with two faces in mythology. They suffer from a rare congenital defect called disprosopus, or cranial duplication. Most Janus cats don't live longer than a day but one defied the odds. His name was "Frank and Louie" and he passed away in 2014 at the age of 15. 

The kitten(s) appear to be doing well and taking it day-by-day. The King's do have a realistic outlook. 

"We're not super optimistic but it does seem pretty lively and has an appetite and seems to be doing pretty well," BJ said.

"It's smaller than the other kittens but it could be the runt, too, on top of having two faces," Kyla said.

They've named their kitten Biscuits and Gravy—"Biscuit" for short. There has been many requests to take in Biscuits and Gravy but the King's are planning on keeping the special kitten(s).

We wish Biscuits and Gravy and a long and happy life!

UPDATE

We are sad to report that Biscuits and Gravy did not make it. The kitten born last week has passed on Saturday night, Kyla King tells CBS affiliate KOIN-TV.

Biscuits and Gravy lived about four days. We are heartbroken over the news and wish the pair a peaceful rest.

There's nothing like a mother's love. 

These 22-days-old baby bunnies just wanted to feel that love even if it means laying next to Bailey, the adorable golden retriever, and adopting him as their mom. 

We're melting.

Pawsitively Precious: Artist Draws Comic About His Dog's Knee Surgery

Artist behind @okbluecomics, adorable and wholesome webcomics all draw in blue, recently shared a more personal comic featuring his dog, Korbin.

He shared the story about how Korbin's knee came to be injured on Imgur, "About a year ago my dog, Korbin, was running to the house from the back yard, when he got to the deck he made a strange yelp and started limping. After going to the vet, we were given some medication and sent on our way. We brought it up again but the resolution was trying to keep him from playing with his sibling and lowering activity...didn't help the limp. 

Fast forward to this year during his physical, we were told that he had bad arthritis and he would need TCL surgery (surgery on the knee). He had torn his MCL and CCL (dog equivalent of ACL) and also had bad arthritis. The vet said "If we had gotten to it sooner, we could have prevented the arthritis...?

Luckily, the surgery went great and when he got home we decided to give him a stuff avocado toy he loves to play with and his jammies to snuggle in. He's doing well now and he finally gets his cone off on Thursday! Still a bit to go towards healing, but he's doing great and responding well to the at-home therapy! 

Note: The jammies helped keeping my other 3 dogs from licking his leg, he doesn't wear them all the time, but he will try to get his head into them if they are out.  Picture was right after anesthesia, so he looks kind of loopy"
