Um, what do you do when you are speechless but you need to say something? This is the pickle I am in. I feel like I should have a lot to say about this, but my mind is blown. THERE ARE NO WORDS.
Yes, this cat is real. She is a “chimera“, which, according to wikipedia, means “a single organism that is composed of two or more different populations of genetically distinct cells that originated from different zygotes involved in sexual reproduction. If the different cells have emerged from the same zygote, the organism is called a mosaic. Chimeras are formed from at least four parent cells (two fertilized eggs or early embryos fused together). Each population of cells keeps its own character and the resulting organism is a mixture of tissues.”
That sounds complicated. All I know is that I want this cat!
Have you ever come across a Chimera animal?
