The two-faced kitten born in Oregon on Tuesday morning has died.
Deucy, as she was named, was initially found to be in good health by her local veterinarian, only to succumb to unspecified health complication 48 hours later, the Oregonian reported.
The four-eyed, two-nosed, and two-mouth female kitten was initially abandoned by her mother, and later found by local kids.
"The kids actually found [the kitten] and came in and said, 'mom there's a kitty with two heads,' and I said, 'I think you guys are just tired, you're crazy, that doesn't happen,'" Deucy's former owner Stephanie Durkee told Sky News.

Deucy's two litter mates, which were not affected with the disorder, reportedly survived.
As news of the kitten's death spread online, Twitter reactions streamed in.
Called "Janus" cats, after the Roman god who had two faces, young Deucy's condition was produced by an extremely rare congenital disorder known as diprosopus, which results in duplicated faces appearing on the head.
The majority of cats born with the condition generally die shortly after birth.
In February 2012, a two-faced black kitten named Harvey Dent – a Batman comic supervillian with two faces, died two days after being born in Port Charlotte, Fla.

Additionally, another two-faced kitten named Gemini, which was born last July in Rhode Island, also died days after its birth, the Huffington Post notes.
The oldest Janus cat, named Frankelouie from Worcester, Mass., lived to be 12 years old, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
