Venus The Chimera Cat Attains Viral Fame (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Meet Venus, the 'two-faced' cat who's taken the Internet by storm.

Her face is divided between black and calico as perfectly as if it was drawn with a ruler, and she has heterochromia, which means that her eyes are different colors -- in this case blue and green.

"This little split face cat looked like a combo of the 2 cats I currently had (and still have)," says Venus's owner on the cat's Facebook page. "As tiny as she is she likes to pick the giant pieces of food from the dog food bowl rather than eat her cat food and when the dogs come up she looks at them like ‘um yeah don’t even think about it.’ She’s the smallest animal of 5 but rules roost & doesn’t take any crap from the other animals."

Venus, who is known as a chimera cat because of her genetic composition, went viral earlier this month when someone posted a photo to social news site Reddit. A few days later, the cat was a bona fide internet celebrity, according to lifewithcats.tv. Venus's Facebook page has already gained over 14,000 fans in less than two weeks.

"She's as sweet as can be....gentle, loving, and has this little tiny kitten like "meow" even though she is 3 now. She acts like a big baby in the way that she loves to be babied. She doesn't bother any furniture with her claws and uses a scratching post. She does not have one single bad habits......she's perfect!" says a post on Venus's Facebook page.
