A kitten in Oregon was born with two faces – and the owner decided to name each face: one is Biscuits and the other is Gravy! Awwww. What cute, delicious names for such an adorable cat!
Kayla and BJ King had already anticipated that their cat would have some kittens but they received a sweet surprise when one appeared so different from the others.
The kitty is male and has a regular-shaped body; however, it is smaller than the other kittens in the litter. It was also totally different in that it has two heads with a total of four eyes, two noses, and two mouths.
“My wife went out to look at them and found five normal ones and one with two faces. We were pretty shocked. It was so odd looking, we didn’t even really think much of it until later in the day when we realized this was actually pretty rare,” explained BJ.
The couple decided to name the two as separate kittens, especially because the kitten had developed the sweet talent of eating from one mouth and meowing from the other! What a cutie.
They talked with a vet who told them that cats like Biscuits and Gravy are extremely rare. Most don’t last for more than 24 hours; though there’s one who lived up to ripe old age of 15 years! Wow.
Upon learning that it is possible to lose the kitten but one had lived to old age, the couple decided to give theirs a better chance of survival by taking over the parenting duties.
“It’s like having a newborn baby. We set the alarm for every two hours to feed him during the night and feed him every two hours, 24 hours a day. We are very careful to keep him warm at all times and he snuggles inside my wife’s shirt for most of the day,” explained BJ.
Sadly, they lost Biscuits and Gravy after 4 days. But the couple said they’re still happy that they had the chance to care for such a sweet, rare creature. Image credits: BJ King / WSMV
