OT: non-iris Chimeras

This is Solkatz Pretty Boy Floid, a red white & blue Maine Coon cat. I've lost track of him so don't know if there are any new theories about his genetic makeup but when I saw him at a cat show a few years ago, the opinion among the genetics mavens I knew was that he was a chimera, having two sets of DNA- which was the story on a recent episode of the TV show, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION.<g>
A cat shouldn't ever be red white & blue, especially not a fertile male. Red white and black male cats exist but they are rare and usually sterile.
