Sometimes, it takes cat-ness to be an internet sensation! Here are 15 of the world’s most famous cats popular for being extremely unique.
1. Venus the Two-Faced Cat
With a single glance, you can understand why Venus is special and famous. One half of her face is solid black with a green eye—the other half has typical orange tabby stripes and a blue eye.
She has an extremely rare condition called “chimera.” This means that her cells contain two types of DNA, caused when two embryos fuse together.
2. Lil Bub, the Perma Kitten
Bub was born with a plethora of genetic defects. She is called a”perma-kitten” for having an extreme case of dwarfism, which means she will be kitten-sized her entire life.
Also, Venus’ lower jaw is significantly shorter than the upper jaw, and her teeth never grew in which is why her tongue is always hanging around.
The perma-kitten also have extra toes to make her more special.
3. Honey Bee, the blind hiking cat

6. Garfi, the World’s Angriest Cat

7. Shironeko, the Happiest and Sleepiest Cat in the World
