If the kitten is unable to nurse, is rejected by its mother or if a caregiver is unable to find a way to feed the kitten, the two-faced cat may not survive.
The two-faced cat may have three or four eyes, one or two esophagus's leading to the stomach and in at least one suspected case, two brains.

Reports of adult two-faced cats do state that these animals go on to live happy, healthy and affection-filled lives.
Thus, the simple reflection that the door is used for the double purpose of entrance and exit leads to the notion of the Janus of the state as bifrons (" two-faced"): the thought of the door as the first part of the house to which one comes, produces the more abstract idea of Janus as the "god of beginning," in which character he has special charge of the first beginnings of human life (Consevius), the first hour of the day, the Calends of the month and the first month of the year in the later calendar: for the same reason his name takes the first place in the indigitamenta.
