Venus The Chimera Cat

DON'T call me two-faced! This amazing chimera cat is called Venus. Her  face is divided into black and ginger, giving her an odd but striking appearance. Venus, from North Carolina, also has one blue eye and one green. Her unusual colouring is due to a genetic mutation. People have accused her owner of dying half her but Christina told the Today show:  "This is just the way she was born, that's it. We have an orange tabby and a black tuxedo [cat] at home, so when I first saw her, I said, 'Oh my gosh, she looks like a combination of both our cats'. Venus has now been spotted by Lady Gaga and could well be in her next video. You can follow Venus on Facebook at www.facebook.com/VenusTheAmazingChimeraCat 
The word chimera is from Greek mythology and is a fire-breathing female monster with a lion's head, a goat's body and a serpent's tail. It has come to refer any animal with parts taken from various animals.
