Kyla King and her family from Albany, Oregon have been caring for cats who wandered to their barn and made it their home. One of the cats was pregnant. When she was approaching her due date, Kyla set up a crate for the expectant cat mom.

On Wednesday morning, Kyla went to check on the tabby cat and found a litter of new babies. As she examined them one by one, she was stunned by what she discovered — one of the kittens has two little faces.

“He was the last one I saw and from the back, he looked like all the other kittens. The head didn’t look especially big until I looked closer and was really startled by the two faces,” the King family told Love Meow.

Baby Biscuits has two mouths, two pairs of eyes, and two ears. “Feeding Biscuits is a bit tricky because he has cleft palates,” Kyla added. “I have to drop a little drop in his mouth, one at a time, so he can swallow it.”
