Cat with 2 faces lives 12 years, sets record

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - September 29, 2011

Twelve years after Marty Stevens rescued him from being put to sleep because of his condition, the exotic blue-eyed rag doll cat is not only thriving but has made it into the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records.

He's the longest surviving member of a group known as Janus cats, named for a Roman god with two faces.

Stevens says every day is a blessing because such cats usually survive only for a few days.

These days, the friendly, laid-back Frank and Louie loves riding in the car and taking walks on a leash, though people who come up to pet him are usually shocked when they get closer.
