Cat Tales

Frank and Louie

In nature sometimes deformations occur, unfortunately this feline found itself on its 9th life dying from cancer. Their names were Frank and Louie. They were born with two faces, two mouths, two noses and three blue eyes. These cats were age of 15. Both Frank and Louie died at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in North Grafton, Massachusetts. Frank and Louie did however make it into the 2012 edition of the Guinness World Records. They are the longest known surviving group of Janus cats.

Marty Stevens is the owner of these cats and learned from the veterinarians the cause of death was cancer. This is sad news for both the life and death of these cats, however animal mutations can sometimes occur.

Nature has a funny way of showing itself, there have been cats with other unusual features such as a cat named Venus who is considered something of a chimera. This is a cat with cells that contain several types of DNA. It is caused by two embryos which fuse together.

Although feline chimeras aren’t rare, this cat named Venus has a perfectly split coloring. It is strange also that this female cat has a blue eye which is typically seen in white colored or Siamese cat. It remains a mystery why this cat has such an eye this color.

Cats are clever and sometimes mischievous. With their flexible bodies and quick reflexes they are able to hunt down small prey with their retractable claws. Although cats are solo hunters, they are indeed a social species. Usually you will hear a cat using different vocalizations this includes purring noises, growling and/or hissing.

Cats are well breed, sometimes they become a pedigree pet to display for showings and of course as house pets all across the world. With a failure of controlled breeding, the world is now dealing with high volumes of stray cats in various regions.
