From Geekologie: "A chimera is one individual organism, but genetically its own fraternal twin. A chimera is typically formed from four parent cells (either two fertilized eggs or two early embryos that have fused together). When the organism forms, the cells that had already begun to develop in the separate embryos keep their original phenotypes and appearances. This means that the resulting animal is a mixture of tissues and can look like this gorgeous (but bizarre) kitty."

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Chimera Cat:
I've known a few of those little checkerboard kitties and they've all been real tiny (as adults) and wicked, whip smart. I wonder if the size and extreme high intelligence tend to go with the condition?
Just imagine - strikingly beautiful, quirky, jewel-eyed, brilliant, petite......I wish I was a kitty.
