The World Puppet Carnival, a competitive festival with professional and amateur puppeteers performing plays and street shows, is underway in Kazakhstan; models get ready backstage at the Giorgio Armani fashion show in Milan, Italy; and in Worcester, Mass., a two-faced feline, named Frank and Louie, is of two minds but takes a stroll anyway. The animal is known as a Janus cat, named for the figure in Roman mythology with two faces on one head.
