Meet Venus, The Amazing Two-Faced Chimera Cat [Video]

Meet Venus, the ‘two-faced’ cat who’s gaining his popularity in the Internet.

The three-year-old cat’s face is perfectly divided between black and calico. Besides, the new Internet star has heterochromia, which means that her eyes are different colors – in this case one is ice blue, the other is green.

Janus, the Roman god who had two faces, would have perhaps been a more suitable name  for the unusual cat, even if she is a female.

“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.”

The cat, who is known as a chimera because of her genetic composition, was first seen in the Internet this month when someone posted a photo to social news site Reddit.

As The Huff Post writes, in a few days, Venus was a bona fide internet celebrity, according to lifewithcats.tv. The chimera cat’s Facebook page has already gained over 14,000 fans in less than two weeks.

Venus has several YouTube videos which have been seen about 154,000 times and have received thousands of ‘likes’.

“She’s as sweet as can be….gentle, loving, and has this little tiny kitten like “meow” even though she is 3 now,” says a post on Venus’s Facebook page.

“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!”

There’s a chance that Venus will soon become as popular as pomeranian  Boo, The world’s cutest dog’.

Boo’s Facebook page was launched in 2009, and since then it has gone viral, receiving thousands of new fans a day, writes The Daily Mail.

His first post on the Facebook account was the next one: “My name is Boo. I am a dog. People love me!” Yet, there is more to his story.

The dog has also attracted the attention of Hollywood ladyes such as TV-star Khloe Kardashian, who posted a picture of the dog on her blog last year and singer Ke$ha, who Tweeted that Boo was ‘her new boyfriend.’

The pooch’s fans wish him good luck in his new occupation: “I love you Boo and keep up with you online all the time.I also have your book and plush dog.I also have pictures of you on my living room wall.Keep up the good work!!!”

“Awww Boo you are the cutest little sell out ever! Haha only joking! His little face will brighten up the airports anyway!”

The adorable Pomeranian has recently become the Official Pet Liaison for Virgin America Airlines.

“As a pet-friendly airline we want our guests — those on two legs and those on four — to have as comfortable and enjoyable experience as possible on Virgin America,” Virgin America spokeswoman Abby Lunardini told reporters.
