chimera kitty cat

Meet chimera cat. She recently went viral on the internet - for obvious reasons. 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.
She also has complete heterochromia, a condition when the eyes are different colours.

She's not a Chimera, god dammit. She's just a calico with really lucky markings. Until they get a gene test to prove she has two DNA's she is NOT a chimera. Orange, white, and black can happen on the same cat.

Actually, heterochromia isn't just for eyes, it's for skin and hair pigmentation as well.
