LAKE CITY, Fla. -- When Teresa Morrison's cat had a litter Tuesday,
she noticed something was different about one of the kittens.

"I thought it had a growth on its face," she said.

The kitten has two mouths, two noses and four eyes. She immediately
called her veterinarian.

"He said he's never seen it. Never," Morrison said.

The kitten is nursing from its mother, which the vet said is a good

"(She's) feeding off one mouth now; sometimes go to the other one,
but he's not getting it open," Morrison said.

The vet told Morrison he didn't know if the cat has one or two
brains, but having one would give the cat a better chance to survive.

He said if the kitten lives 48 hours, he has a good chance of living
a full life.

Wednesday morning, Morrison named the cat "Deuce."

LAKE CITY, FL -- The little kitten that was born with two faces in Lake City has died.

Deuce's owner says they were forced to put the kitten to sleep on Friday after he came down with pneumonia and was not strong enough to survive.

Deuce was born with two faces but all organs were in tact. Veterinarians say this was not the reason for his death.||
