Chimera Cat was issued from two dads and has a double face

Im-paw-sible! Chimera feline whose face is half ginger half black fur is a walking sensation after being fathered by TWO tomcats

  • Luna, two, from Wythenshawe, Manchester, is a mix-up moggy cat with dual fur  
  • ‘Chimera’ cats born when two embryos fertilised by two males merge into one
  • Striking Luna gets compliments wherever she goes and receives gifts from fans 

This incredible two-faced cat stuns onlookers with her unique half-ginger-half-black face, thanks to a rare birth condition.

The mix-up moggy, Luna, two, lives with owner, Janet Bell, 62, in Wythenshawe, Manchester, where they are often stopped and quizzed about the feline’s features.

The legal secretary adopted Luna from a friend after her cat had escaped while the pair were on holiday and fell pregnant.

The quirky kitten is officially known as a ‘chimera cat’ meaning Luna has two sets of DNA because two different embryos fused together in her mother’s womb.

The fascinating cat, pictured, lives a life of luxury and gets complimented wherever she goes, her owner said 

Jan said: ‘Luna was the first kitten to be born and when she came out I told my friend “I want that one”.

‘I thought she was beautiful, we couldn’t believe it, I’d never seen anything like it.

‘Whenever she goes out of the house people will stop in the street and double take when they look at her.

‘People will say how beautiful and unusual she looks or ask me why she looks like that.

Jane has revealed fans of the feline have even been sending Luna gifts. Jane admitted she used to be a dog person, but was converted when she laid eyes on Luna as a kitten 

‘They can’t believe she has a half-and-half face.’

Chimera cats: the feline with three genetic parents  

Female cats can carry embryos that were fertilised by different male felines at the same time. 

Chimera cats are born when two embryos that were fertilised by two males merge together. 

Instead of two separate cats with one set of DNA each, only one kitten is born, with two sets of DNA.  

Female cats can mate and conceive children with more than one male partner at the same time, allowing them to give birth to kittens in the same litter but with different DNA.

When two embryos with different DNA fuse, a chimera kitten is born instead of two separate cats with one set of DNA each.

Now Luna lives a pampered lifestyle enjoying cuddles from Jan and her three grandchildren, Reece, 14, Kai, ten, and River-Lucia, four, whom Luna shares a special bond with.

Jan said: ‘We were away on holiday when my friend Tara’s cat escaped and mated with another cat.

‘I’ve always been a dog person and never liked cats normally but my friend promised me one of the kittens.

‘When I saw Luna’s face I fell in love with her and now she lives a very pampered lifestyle.

‘People online think she’s beautiful as well.

‘She even gets sent gifts from people who are fascinated by her face.

‘She’s a lovely cat, she’s so well-behaved even when she has a bath.’ 

Cat’s in the basket! As well as being a stunner, Luna is also a lovely cat who is extremely well-behaved, Jane boasted
