Nash Hand and his wife, Amanda Forsythe, of Suncoast, said their cat, Nene, gave birth Monday and they were shocked to see the kitten had two faces, a condition that earns such felines the nickname Janus cat, after the Roman god with two faces, WWSB-TV, Sarasota, Fla., reported Thursday.

The couple said they named the cat Harvey Dent, after the Batman villain Two-Face.

"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 of both sides," Forsythe said.

Dr. Greg Fluharty with the Animal Clinic in Port Charlotte said he examined the feline and he appears healthy.

"Lungs sound normal. Respiration and heart rate were normal for a kitten that age," he said.

Harvey has an appointment this week with a vet neurologist to conduct further tests.

"It's going to give them some information so they can make the right choices," Fluharty said.
