What to Call Your Double-Faced Cat

So Gawker today has a post up on Frank and Louie (“Frankenlouie”) a double-faced cat that holds the world record for longevity for having evaded death for twelve whole years. The lifespan is remarkable because most such cats die fairly quickly, apparently missing out on the eighteen lives you’d expect they’d get.

The technical term for these little experiments of God is Janus cat, so-called for the two-faced Roman god from whom we get the name for January, the month when we’re looking back on the past year and preparing for the new year to come. But I say a better term is Regina Delvecchio cats, after that two-faced bitch Regina Delvechhio. She knows what she did. And she’s not welcome around here anymore.
