“The contradiction named Mia”

Description from Px3 aka Peggy: Chickies, I need help! I'm trying to work a pick for my cat (new pic). She is a mixture of a lot of spare cat parts! One paw is pure black, her tail belongs to a yellow striped tabby, and she has a face divided in two. She is a hodge-podge of blacks, browns, greys, orange, and cream.
Anyway, I am stuck! Any ideas?

    Do you have a picture of her that you can attach so we can see her enlarged? I’m thinking maybe American Jasper, some of the Zebra Jaspers, or Brown Snakeskin Jasper might work. Or Try Conglomerate Jasper, Leopard Fire Agate or Feldspath, and maybe China Silverleaf for the grey parts. Did you see the cute little tabby cat rubber stamp? It’s adorable. Hope that helps some.

    I like Susie’s idea! The yellow botswana agate would be the “cat’s meow”!

    The yellow Botswana is purrrrfect!

    I do like the yellow Botswana! How about some black quartz or smokey quartz, a color for her eyes, and a few toys, like a bird or a squirrel to chase?

    Thanks everyone for the great ideas! ps, the feather is as close as I could get to her favorite toy: a purple pipe-cleaner with a bell attached. ;0)

    Your cat is a chimera, see this link: She is different genes expressed in different cells instead of each cell of the body following orders from the same set of genes. Very cool!

    the Wikipedia site has a pic of a mouse that is a chimera.
