Two faced kitten found in a wall now has a large family to cuddle with

An adorable two-faced kitten was found in a wall with her brother. Now they have a large family of cats to love.

Nashville Cat Rescue

A family from Nashville, Tennessee were working on a construction in their home when they noticed a couple of tiny kittens in a wall. Thinking that the mother cat might be nearby, they decided to wait for her return.

After many hours there was still no mother cat to be seen. The kittens were very hungry and in dire need of care. The family reached out to Nashville Cat Rescue and asked if they could take her with them.

The kittens were only 2-3 weeks old. At their age, they would do better with a nursing mother cat. Kiki, a rescue volunteer, learned of her plight and immediately stepped forward to help.

She happened to have two mothers of cats (Olive and Pickle) rescued from a cat colony. They only had kittens and were excellent candidates for raising the new babies.

As it turns out, the two orphans are about the same age as the cats’ kittens. Kiki took them into their care so that the little ones could be done by two mothers and had siblings to cuddle and wrestle with.

One of the kittens was born with a perfectly split face, with one half being black with orange spots and the other half covered with orange tabby stripes.

It’s hard to tell if the little calico is a cat chimera – a cat whose DNA is different from one side of the body. “Technically, only a DNA test can prove that,” Kiki told Love Meow.

Either way, the calico is a special little gem that is so happy to be safe and warm with her brother. She was called apricot and her brother is pretzel.

Kiki brought the kittens to Olive and Pickle and slowly tried to introduce them, but one of the cats took matters into her own paws as soon as she heard the kittens screams.

“Olive took it right from my hand, brought it to Pickle, and they just started grooming it.”

The two fit perfectly into their large family. The other kittens took them in as their own and began to cuddle with them.

Apricot spends most of its time sleeping in a large mustache. She continues to doze even though the other kittens crawl over her.

The brother and sister love their adoptive family and are already putting on weight and gaining a lot of energy.
