Photos: Two-faced cat turns 12

Frank and Louie was born with two faces, two mouths, two noses, and three eyes. He can see out of only two of his three eyes. The middle eye can't even blink, which makes Frank and Louie appear to be staring even when his other eyes are closed.

Some cats show many moods, but what if they show many faces? Meet Frank and Louie, a cat with not only two names, but also two faces on one head.

Born 12 years ago, the cat - known as a Janus cat - was not expected to live long, the Associated Press reports. Janus cats almost never survive, and most have birth defects, including a cleft palate, that makes it difficult for them to nurse and often causes them to slowly starve or get milk in their lungs and die of pneumonia.

But, for reasons unknown, Frank and Louie did not suffer from these common ailments and have made it into the 2012 Guinness World Records as the longest-surviving Janus cat. Keep clicking to see more photos of Frank and Louie, the two-faced cat...
