Quimera the cat may just be one the rarest of her kind in the entire world. Residing in Argentina with her dad, she possesses a very striking and unusual appearance. One of her eyes is yellow and the other is bright blue, while the color of the fur on her face is split right down the middle, with one side gold and the other black! The fur split even extends to her chest and front legs, only the colors are reversed in the lower portion of her body. Quimera is very likely a Genetic chimera, a natural genetic phenomenon in which an individual is made up of cells from at least two different eggs.

She could also be a mosaic, which occurs when one egg has different active genetic expressions in its cells. Mosaics are far more common in felines, but only a DNA test could tell us for sure.
