The feline’s owner, Marty Stevens, revealed that Frank and Louie had been feeling a “little down” around the Thanksgiving holiday. Frank and Louie was raced to the hospital after he got sicker.
He was euthanized after veterinarians told her that he was suffering from cancer.
The feline made history and into the 2012 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest Janus cat, which is named for a Roman god born with two faces, according to the Associated Press.
Frank and Louie was a miracle cat. He lived life pretty much like a normal cat. His most challenging problem throughout his life was only neutering and teeth removal. Janus cats usually have a low survival rate and suffer from congenital defects.
Despite her loss, Marty is open to adopting another Janus cat.
“I would love to do it again,” she told The Telegram.
Our thoughts go out Marty and her family during this difficult time. Rest in peace, Frank and Louie.
