What’s even better than having a gorgeous face? Having two of them.
Both sides of Quimera the cat’s face have completely different coloring — a phenomenon that is quite rare, although the explanation is likely fairly simple. Columbia University Professor of Genetics and Development Virginia Papaioannou believes that cats with this unusual color pattern are simply calico cats. Calicos possess genes for different colors, which may be expressed in random ways.
Quimera is living proof that beauty comes in all colors — or sometimes, in many colors on the same face.
