A kitten with two faces has been born in Amity, Oregon.

The tiny feline, who meows loudly from each mouth, was rejected by her mother and is now being hand-fed by owner Stephanie Durkee, who has named her “Duecy”.

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

Two-faced Duecy is extremely vocal from both mouths

Although just a day old, little Duecy seems in good health, NWCN.com reports. The channel adds Duecy is being kept comfortable and warm in a dresser drawer with a heating pad and towels.

In February last year we reported on another two-faced kitten born in Port Charlotte, Florida.

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

Sadly cats born with congenital abnormalities like this typically do not live long, and Harvey died two days after his birth.

However the Guinness Book of Records of 2012 records 12-year-old Janus cat Frankenlouie as the longest surviving cat of his kind.
