The kitten has two noses, four eyes that are not yet open and two mouths.

While checking on her pregnant cat, an OR woman was surprised to find she'd already given birth, and one of the kittens had two faces.

Giving details, the woman, Kyla King said that when she removed the special crate she had put the expectant mother into overnight, she noticed four tinny kittens. All King can do is try to feed it and care for it as best she can.

Remarkably, he can meow with one mouth while eating out of the other, which is the definition of talking with your mouth full.

Clearly, it was much-needed respite from the coronavirus news cycle and the post has garnered more than 1,700 reactions so far, according to the Democrat-Herald.

The rare kittens were named as Biscuits and Gravy. Cats with this defect are often called Janus cats, the local publication says, after a Roman god with two faces.

According to National Geographic, Janus cats have an excess of a protein called "sonic hedgehog," which influences how facial features develop. The longest living Janus cat was Frank and Louie of MA who died in 2014 at the age of 15.

The adorable two-faced kitten was born on Wednesday morning, causing the King family quite the surprise when they awoke to find him amongst the five other kittens.

Here's hoping Biscuit and Gravy can be the next Frank and Louis and live a long, prosperous life.
