2-faced Kitten Dies in Rhode Island: 2 mouths, 4 eyes, 24 toes
A two-faced kitten recently born in Providence, Rhode Island died Friday.
Gemini was born in a litter of five kittens. He had two faces, four eyes, two noses, two mouths, two ears, and two separate tracheas that went into one throat. He had seven toes on each front foot and five on each back for a total of 24 toes.
Veterinarian Ernest Finocchio is president of theRhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. He says he'd never seen such a kitten. He says it could've been twins that didn't separate properly.
Two-faced kittens are very rare and seldom survive.
