It was delivered at the Swan Veterinary Clinic after its mother had endured complications during the birth.
The feline can only use one of its two faces to eat because of a cleft palate, but both of its mouths can miaow at the same time.
The grey and white cat was one of three born in the litter, but its siblings were born without deformities.
Nurse Louisa Burgess, who successfully delivered the remarkable cat with veterinarian George Huber, said that in her 12-year career' she had never seen a two-faced cat.
"I have seen cats with two tails and extra legs, but not this," she said.
And despite its irregular birth, Burgess said the cat appeared healthy.
"It has a full tummy and it survived the night so that is a good sign," she added. "It seems content, it meows and purrs.
"This is the result of a congenital deformity. Something has gone wrong in the early embryonic development."
