    Venus, a 3 year old chimera cat. Chimera cat is one individual organism, but genetically its own fraternal twin. A chimera is typically formed from four parent cells (either two fertilized eggs, or two early embryos that have fused together). When the organism forms, the cells that had already begun to develop in the separate embryos keep their original phenotypes and appearances. This means that the resulting animal is a mixture of tissues and can look like this gorgeous (but bizarre) kitty.

This is a chimera cat, who is it's own fraternal twin. (When two fertilized eggs fuse together)

If a dog jumps in your lap, it is because he is fond of you; but if a cat does the same thing, it is because your lap is warmer=))

Anna's Hummingbird. They're all over our backyard. When we lived in the Tenderloin and they visited us on the 16th floor we used to joke that they had little tough guy denim vests on.

This is Venus, she's a Chimera cat and technically, her own twin! She's the result of four parent cells (two fertilized eggs or two embryos fused together). The two separate organisms had already started to develop, so that's why some features of both remained in this one amazing kitty!

Venus is most likely a "chimera" -- an animal composed of two populations of genetically distinct cells that originated from different zygotes. This means one would have two different sets of DNA. She is also, relatedly, heterochromatic -- her eyes are two different colors.
