Meet Quimera, a beautiful kitten from Argentina who has an unusual face and the internet is loving it!
Quimera’s face looks like this thanks to a genetic condition called chimera, a rare occurrence that happens when an individual has cells from two or more original eggs. In other words, she shares DNA from two completely different individuals and it surely shows.
Another possibility is that she is a mosaic. This is much more common in cats and it happens when one egg accidentally has different active genetic expressions in the cells. We can’t know for sure without a DNA test.
But does it really matter? We can all agree that Quimera is beautiful and it’s no wonder she has nearly 50k people following her on Instagram. Scroll down to enjoy this natural beauty.
