Viral star Venus the cat is a chimera. Her different colored eyes and the spilt coat color on her face are expressions of her different genetic codes. Tiger the Labrador Retriever also is a chimera. Her owners discovered this after their two purebred Labs produced a puppy that was spotted. In purebred Labs, the entire coat is usually one solid color, usually black, brown or yellow.
Venus the black-and-gold chimera cat recently went viral on the Internet. Not only is her face color split perfectly in half, she also has complete heterochromia, a condition in which the eyes are different colors. What an exceptional cat!
