WORCESTER, Mass.: Frank and Louie the cat was born with two faces, two mouths, two noses, and three eyes.
Twelve years after his owner rescued him from being put to sleep because of his condition, the cat is not only thriving but has made it into the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records as the longest surviving member of a group known as Janus Cats, named for a Roman god with two faces.
It doesn’t state how many brains he has. For his sake, I hope just one. =/
That is such a beautiful cat, though.
I recently photographed my mate’s dark tower tattoo, so here it is. Hope you all like it. I certainly do!
The Famous Case of Emilie Sagée and her Doppelgänger
Before teaching at the Pensionat von Neuwelcke School for girls in France (pictured above), Emilie Sagee had taught at eighteen different schools. Eighteen schools from which she had been fired because of the phenomena that accompanied her. This 32-year old school teacher and her ability of bilocation has become one of the most witnessed and documented cases of a Doppelgänger in recorded history.
As Sagée was writing on the chalkboard while teaching her class, her double appeared, standing along side her mimicking her motions. It was her exact image except that it wasn’t holding a piece of chalk.
On another occasion, all of the school’s 42 girls were in the school hall for sewing and embroidery class. As they worked, they could clearly see Sagée in the school’s garden gathering flowers. However, when the girl’s teacher left the room for a moment, Sagée’s Doppelgänger appeared, sitting motionless in the teacher’s chair. Two girls tried to touch the apparition but were met with an odd resistance and were unable to penetrate the air surrounding the entity. Yet, one girl, stepping between the teacher’s chair and the table, passed through the apparition, which then slowly vanished.
Sagée was absolutely unconscious of what was happening and she only knew about the phenomenon because of the expression on the faces of the people who were there. It was by seeing their frightened faces, their eyes staring at something invisible which seemed to be moving near her, that she understood. But she had never, herself, seen her double; neither had she noticed the stiffness and slowing down of her movements when her double appeared.
