Venus, the “double-sided” cat

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Meet Venus – the fascinating feline with the world’s most interesting face. The five-year old tortoiseshell not only has two different coloured eyes (known as heterochromia), but she also has two starkly different fur colours split exactly down the middle of her face.

Venus’ rare appearance has earned her the nickname Chimera cat (a single organism composed of genetically distinct cells), although the validity of the claim has yet to be proven.

Not surprisingly, Venus has amassed a large following online and her Facebook page alone has over 575,000 fans. Venus lives in a loving home with two other feline siblings plus two canine siblings. For more pictures and info check out Venus on Facebook.
