You could be mistaken for thinking that Photoshop has played a major part in these incredible pictures.

But Venus the cat is actually real, despite her striking appearance. This adorable five-year-old tabby has been taking the Internet by storm because of her unique face, black on one side and orange on the other. Notice that her eyes are different too, her black side has a yellow one while her orange side has a blue one.

Her humans, Christina and Chris, say that when they saw Venus they fell in love with her right away. They brought Venus to the home they share with their three children in Florida, and were astonished that the line down her face was so distinct. Even her whiskers were white on one side and black on the other.

Christian and Chris fell in love with Venus at first sight because she looked like a mixture of their other two cats, an orange tabby cat and a black tuxedo. They have since turned Venus into an inspiration for millions of people to celebrate diversity and have large followings on Facebook and Instagram. They recently posted: “No matter how different you are, love yourself and all of your perfect imperfections! We all have them. Be true to yourself and don’t change for anyone! We’re not all supposed to be the same. Our differences are what makes us unique which makes everyone one of a kind.”

Venus’ motto is “0% Photoshopped, 100% Born This Way!”

Finding comfortable places to sleep & jumping on Mommy’s lap every opportunity!
