An two-faced kitten has died two days after his birth in Port Charlotte, Florida.

The kitten – named Harvey Dent after the two-faced character in the Batman series – had four eyes, two mouths and two noses.

Upon his birth, the tiny feline seemed apparently healthy, with owners Nash Hand and Amanda Forsythe telling Sarasota TV station WWSB: “They simultaneously work together, the two faces.

“When he eats on one side it looks like he is eating on the other. When he meows it comes out both sides.”

Two-faced felines are known as Janus cats after the Roman god who also had two faces.

Sadly, two-faced cats tend not to live very long, as is the case with Harvey Dent, who died yesterday, ABC 7 reported.

The exception to the rule is a two-faced cat who is almost 12-years-old, according to the Guinness Book of Records.
