Rare Genetic Mutation Makes This ‘Chimera’ Kitten One Of The Cutest Accidents Ever

Quimera is a gorgeous cat from Argentina whose unusual features have taken the internet by storm.

Quimera is known as a genetic chimera, a rare natural occurrence where an individual is made up of cells from at least two different original eggs. They fuse together to become a single organism, whose DNA is from two completely different individuals.

There is also the possibility that she is a “mosaic” which is much more common in felines, the result of one individual egg that has different active genetic expressions in its cells. Only DNA testing would give the answer.

Either way, she is just a gorgeous feline! Her blue eye looks like precious stones, bright and beautiful and an utter contrast to her other eye. The color split continues down her chest to her front legs, with the sides reversed.
