So Sad! Oldest Living Cat With Two Faces Has Passed Away

Oh no! This is so sad!

Frank and Louie, the oldest living cat with two faces, has passed away at the age of 15 from cancer.

And while her owner Marty Stevens is devastated, she also knows how much of a blessing it was that the cat survived as long as she did.

The special feline was born with two faces, two noses, two mouths, and three blue eyes.

And even though the cat has passed, her legacy has already been established in 2012 when it became the longest surviving Janus cat in that year's Guinness World Records.

These types of cats, who usually don't survive very long, are called Janus cats after the Roman god who had two faces, as well.

Frank and Louie died this past Thursday at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in North Grafton, Massachusetts after the owner noticed the cat had become ill. Veterinarians decided to euthanize the cat after they determined it was suffering from "really bad cancer."

RIP Frank and Louie. You were really one of a kind!!!

We're still so sad about Diem Brown's passing.

She was reality show royalty, and watching The Challenge without her just isn't going to be the same.

But remembering her best moments on the show got us thinking about other past MTV cast members who died way before their time.

For instance, The Real World premiered in 1992, and there have already been four deaths in the franchise since it all started.

We hope all eight of these stars who died too soon are resting peacefully.

Today, on what would have been Maynard's 30th birthday, her supporters have released a posthumous video in support of the Death with Dignity Act, a cause near and dear to her heart.
