He has what?

"I called a kitten rescue service and they told me not to expect him to survive. But I didn't see why he shouldn't be given the chance to live. Everything is possible," stated Lil'Bit's owner.

The 47 year-old woman in Arizona nearly dropped the newborn kitten she pulled from beneath her computer table seven months ago, when she saw him. His four other brothers and sisters had the normal one face apiece but Lil'Bit had a bit more. He had two ears, which is normal but he also had four eyes, two mouths and two noses. The middle two eyes are at the point of merging now and the vets now believe that he may well have two brains as well.

Instead of leaving him for death, she got a heating pad and started feeding him every 15 minutes with an eyedropper. She continued that until he was almost three months old and then switched him to normal cat food. He does have difficulty walking and that led to problems in the litterbox as well until she hit upon the aof putting him in premie baby diapers.

These days, his owner can watch one of Lil'Bit's faces sleep while the other is awake. He can sneeze out of one nose and not the other and when he purrs, she stated that it is usually in stereo. He hasn't been x-rayed or neutered for fear of what it may do to him so for now, Lil'Bit lives a life no one thought he would survive to enjoy at an undisclosed location.

As odd as he may look, he has shown that a will to live can be a powerful thing and he was fortunate to be born into a household that loves every bit of him it seems.
