This Chimera Kitty Is Taking The Internet By Storm Thanks To Her Rare Condition

The word “chimera” comes from Greek mythology, describing a creature with the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a serpent.

However, the chimera kitten you’re about to meet doesn’t sound as hideous as this creature and, in fact, she may be one of the cutest kittens you’ve ever seen.

Genetic chimera is a rare natural occurrence where a being (human, animal, or plant) is made up of cells from at least two different original eggs that fuse together to become a single organism. Instead of one DNA, chimera animals have two.

Quimera is a gorgeous cat from Argentina who is becoming quite an internet star largely in part to her genetic chimera.

This pretty lady has nearly 50,000 Instagram followers and the number is steadily growing.

Quimera isn’t the first famous feline to have chimera and take the Internet by storm.

About five years, a cat named Venus became quite popular for her chimera, but Quimera has moved Venus off the top of the cat tree.
