Two Faced Cat Venus - It’s hard to imagine a two-faced cat with different eye color and fur. These felines are rare, so meet Venus. This adorable stray cat has black fur with a green eye on one side, and brown fur with a blue eye on the other.
“One theory about Venus’ appearance is that the two-faced cat is her own twin,” News Max reports. “Venus is thought to be a chimera cat, with cells containing two types of DNA, caused when two embryos fuse together,” the site said. This feline is so popular, she has her own Facebook page with more than 225,000 fans.
Two faced cats aren’t really all that strange to see, but what about a two-toned cat with two different eye colors and a face that looks like two cats were combined into one? She was a stray cat before her owner found her back in 2012 wandering around a North Carolina dairy farm.
Venus quickly became a viral sensation. She, along with her owners Chris and Christine, even stopped by NBC that year to put to rest any rumors that Venus’s coloring wasn’t authentic. “Skeptics out there saying you painted her face,” Chris said. “We’ve heard everything from Photoshop to that we dyed her face,” said Christine. “We can verify, she’s 100 percent authentically all kitty, no dye.”
So then what type of cat is Venus? It turns out, that this two faced cat may be a mixture of a lot of different breeds of house cat, according to Christina.
Venus’s veterinarian believes she is calico-haired underneath, with tortoiseshell fur on the top, and then a mix of orange tabby and black tuxedo thrown in for good measure.
Now Venus hasn’t been DNA tested, but that conclusion would mean she is a “chimera” cat.
