Double take! Meet the cat with nine lives and TWO faces

By Daily Mail Reporter

Split personality: The cat's two faces are down to a genetic mutation.

We all know cats have nine lives. But this very special and much loved cat was born with two faces.

Frankenlouie, who lives with his owner in Milbury, Massachusetts, has a genetic birth deformity which caused him to grow the extra facial features.

The extraordinary feline's two faces were caused by a condition called Janus, which normally causes cats to live for only a few days.

But the unusual pet has beaten the odds to live long enough to celebrate his 12th birthday.

Now the feat of survival has earned him a place in the Guinness World Records.

Frankenlouie is already an internet star who has notched up thousands of hits on You Tube.

And the one-in-a million mog has featured on TV shows such as 'Strange, Freaky, True'.

Born this way: Cats born with the condition Janus which causes the mutation normally live for just a few days

Survivor: Frabkenlouie will now be entered in the Guinness book of records
The cat's owner is former veterinary nurse who does not want to be identified.
