This Cat Had Two Names And You’ll Be Shocked When You Learn Why

The cat starring in the next video is named Frank and Louie. You might be wondering why this unique cat has two names, and the reason is very simple. He has two faces. Frank-and-Louie is what is known as a Janus cat, and he now holds the record for the longest lived Janus cat ever. This condition is named after an old Roman god who was portrayed with two faces. Cats with this condition do not normally survive long after birth, so there wasn’t much hope for Frank-and-Louie, except for the hope of one very special woman.

The vets said that the cat would probably not live longer than a week, but amazingly, Frank-and-Louie was able to live for much longer than that. The woman in the video, Ms. Stevens, took him in when he was just a day old, when he was scheduled to be euthanized as a way to ease his pain. But Ms. Stevens knew that he could be a happy cat, and she decided to give him a better life herself.

At the time of the recording, Frank-and-Louie was already the oldest Janus cat ever, at 12 years of age. Since the video was recorded, Frank-and-Louie passed away, at 15 years old, but he proved that Janus cats can live lives just as fulfilling as their one-faced cousins! Thanks to this kind and hopeful owner, Frank-and-Louie lived a wonderful life.
