Different eye colored cat


Heterochromia refers to a difference in coloration, usually of the iris but also of hair or skin. Although infrequently seen in humans, complete heterochromia is more frequently observed in other species, where it almost always involves one blue eye. These species include the cat, particularly breeds such as Turkish Van, Turkish Angora, and (rarely) Japanese Bobtail. These so-called odd-eyed cats are white, or mostly white, with one normal eye (copper, orange, yellow, green), and one blue eye.
