Cat with Two Color Eyes

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I have always dreamed of being owned by a cat with two different color eyes, and I also love black cats - so if it could be a black cat with different color eyes, I'd be in heaven!

Any medical issues associated with multi colored eyes?

I never herd of any sickness related in two color eyes befor . Also most white cats have two color eyes and I have never seen or herd of a black cat with different color eyes

I've never seen a black cat with 2 different color eyes...I've only seen white cats.

The color of eyes doesn' t make a difference, I don't think, but white cats are more prone to deafness.

I've never heard of a black cat with odd colored eyes. Maybe someone asked that question in the Genitics forum? Might be worth checking out. However I've seen other colored cats with odd eyes, like Turkish Vans, Japanese Bobtails, which aren't white. So I wouldn't say it was impossible, and our dog who is a Black Bicolor.. She's Greyhound/Border Collie cross, has odd eyes(copper & blue) Hedi, that's not true, orange eyed whites are much more common then odd eyed whites, and I'm pretty sure(even google searched) that no problems come with odd eyes, it's actually the blue eye that causes the deafness.


Hope this helps.

Sam what I meant was , that in white color cats it is more common to have two color eyes ( odd eyes ) . Maybe I said it wrong or I missunderstand now . Sorry about that .

All cats with blue eyes (one or two) have one of the following genes: Dominant White (solid white cats), Piebald White Spotting (cats with white and other colors), Colorpoint (Siamese, but not Burmese or Tonks), or Ojos Azules (Only found in the Ojos Azules breed, causes deep blue eyes in any color of coat, and is exceedingly rare). Odd eyes typically only occur in cats with the Dominant White or Piebald White Spotting genes (odd or blue eyes typically occur in white spotted cats when the white region includes their eyes).

I once had an all white cat who had one blue eye and one green eye. I was told this had happened because she was half Siamese half something else. Perhaps who should look for a half breed, one of which should be black and one with blue eyes. But I have never seen a cat with blue eyes. Perhaps you could find a black cat with one amber eye one green eye.

Talon I have just had another idea Why don't you get one black cat and one white that has two colour eyes. Then you have a bonus

white cats with two different eyes...sometimes the blue eye side has a deaf ear..but it is not always the case (deafness is heredity/genetic). that is all I know. I have a white munchkin male that has been neutered, he has a blue eye and a gold eye. not deaf but VERY shy. If you are close to Michigan he is available... I have heard of odd color eyed black cats but do not know of any.

Catfur: Thanks for the details, I am always curious on how these things can occur.

What intrigues me is humans that are odd-eyed. There's a man on The Bill (a British police show) with two different coloured eyes and I'm not sure if I find it spooky or OK LOL.

Tania - I know a maori girl with one bright blue eye and one brown eye. She looks really scary - two her sisters have the same thing and one of her sisters has bright blue eyes.

If you like odd-eyed cats, take a look at the Meowhoo photo contest this month on www.meowhoo.com - there's a pretty bicolor cat with odd eyes.

The trouble with those photo contests for me is that every one of those cats is precious - I have a really tough time choosing.
