Being Two-Faced and A Cat… Medical Oddities Galore!

This cat(s) is/are called Frank and Louie, and (by now) 13 years old it is the longest living two-faced cat ever. He/They live(s) in Massachusetts, in the care of a loving woman only known as Marty. He/They suffer(s) from a condition called Disprosopus, a genetic disease that caused him to grow two faces. This malfunction is not only found in cats but also in other animals. The latest case noted in a human was the Indian girl Lali Singh, who unfortunately died two months after birth of a heart attack.

Don’t you find this fascinating? I wonder if people like this would survive longer (and if cats can do it, why not?) perhaps calling someone “two-faced” would get a different connotation…

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...
