Is The Two-Faced Kitten Born In Oregon Dead? — 13 Comments

  1. She just won’t have any quality of life will she? and I find that really sad 🙁 she will probably be taken here there and everywhere 🙁 I know if I ever ended up with a cat like that (which I wouldn’t because every cat I’ve ever had has been neutered, male and female) I would protect her from the world and no one would know she existed I would want her to be loved just like every cat we’ve ever had.

    • Now that is what I like to read 😉 Exactly what I would do. I would keep her a secret and if there was any sign of distress or serious health problem I would reluctantly euthanise. I just feel that is the best way. That has to be a time when euthanasia is best, sad though it is.

  2. That poor little soul, I can’t help wishing he/she just goes to sleep while still so young and doesn’t wake up because I fear for what sort of life he/she will have as a “freak of nature” if already his/her existance is known worldwide. If this had happened to a cat/kitten in our family the last thing we’d think of doing would be videoing the poor creature and posting it on youtube or anywhere else, or of phoning news stations. It’s voyeurism at it’s worst.

    • I think I feel that she should be (a) genuinely loved and then (b) humanely and tenderly euthanised. That is my gut feeling. It just does not feel right doing this.

  3. When I first saw the video the other day my thought was I hope if the kitten survives she doesn’t become exploited like Grumpy cat is!

    • Yes, me too. Two-faced cats are extremely vulnerable although some survive quite well. Personally, I would just quietly care for them and get a good vet’s advice. Should we euthanise a two-faced kitten? I don’t know. That possibility does cross my mind.

  4. Well, I’m sorry for Harvey. If Deucey’s person says the kitten is alive, then the kitten is probably alive. I can tell you this though–with human children, those born with birth anomalies that are evident, as the kitten’s are, often also have anomalies in their internal organs that can shorten their life spans.

    • The vet said the organs looked normal. Don’t know what kind of tests were run. I just don’t know how close to the situation the YouTube poster is. And then to read the article saying the kitten died at home. The article said Stephanie called the news station.

  5. I just want to know whether she’s dead. This is the most conflicting article I’ve ever done for PoC. Do we believe the news report or the person who posted the video?

    I don’t like conflict. I like order where the status is in agreement. This type of thing really messes with my head.

    I don’t like to see two-faced kittens either but people are attracted to oddities.

    Never thought I’d get used to looking at a one-eared cat but I did 🙂

  6. I know I tend to be out on a limb on these topics but I dislike looking at two-faced kittens.

    Don’t get me wrong, I respect the views of others. However, the reason for the interest in two-faced kittens is the same reason for the interest that people have in Grumpy cat and other sorts of weird or unusual creatures.

    And I say that that the Grumpy cat scenario is exploitation.

    It is voyeurism. It is an expression of the bored and ghoulish human mind.

    That is just my views. Anyone can tell me I’m wrong and I’ll be fine about it.

    On that basis, I don’t get involved with these stories so can’t answer the question in the title.
