A Truly Mixed Cat [Pics]

I know it’s not Saturday, but this is such a feat of biology I thought it was worth posting.

This is Venus. This is not a photoshopped picture. She’s what they call a “chimera”, which according to Wikipedia (all hail Wikipedia) means that she “is composed of two or more different populations of genetically distinct cells that originated from different zygotes involved in sexual reproduction.”

To me, she’s just a really unique and awesome looking cat. People still think it’s photoshopped/faked, but the owner of the cat has uploaded many more photos and vides on Facebook for all to see. She’s real, and she’s beautiful.

It’s funny, because she looks just like a mix of her housemates – which is why her mum got her in the first place. Look at em all cuddled up:

  1. Lyrics to Blues In The Night :
    (Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer)

    My mama done tol' me, when I was in knee-pants
    My mama done tol' me, " Son a woman'll sweet talk"
    And give ya the big eye, but when the sweet talkin's done
    A woman's a two-face,
    A worrisome thing who'll leave ya to sing the blues in the night

  2. I've a cat that looks pretty much the same, although both eyes are orange. We thought about trying to call her some variant of harvey dent but it didnt really fit her.
