Twin White Cats Born With Heterochromatic (Two Different Colored) Eyes

August 8, 2016


These are several shots of Iriss and Abyss, two twin cats born with blue and brown heterochromatic eyes. You know I used to know a girl with two different colored eyes. I asked her out on a date once. You know what she told me? I don't date losers. I almost argued with her, but deep down I knew she was right and deserved better.

Legend says that different coloured eyes allow people or animals to see into both worlds - of the living and the dead.

Whoa -- different colored eyes allow you to see in the worlds of the living AND dead? That's terrifying. I can barely stand seeing in the world of just the living, the last thing I need is ghost vision. X-ray vision, absolutely, but only to remind myself I'm wearing women's underwear and deserve to feel sexy.

Keep going for several more shots including one with red foam balls on their heads because they forgot how to clown.







Thanks to lizzy, who sometimes puts one colored contact in to pretend her eyes are heterochromatic and convince people she can talk to their dead relatives for a modest fee.

    Their mother was probably a Khao Manee cat, and they inherited their colours from her (even their heterochromia, typical of this breed).
    I read that their father was instead a black and white cat, and I think it's true, 'cause in other photos we can see some dark spots on their heads.
    In any case, they're truly beautiful!

  • Trevor Thieme

    I had a cat that had 2 colored eyes like that 8 or so years ago.

  • Terry Bennett

    All my cats have 2 coloured eyes. But my white cat, Frank, has one blue and one not. He also had the little black streaks on top of his kitten head which disappeared on his cat head.

    Aren't they just more likely to be deaf on the blue side?

  • Ziggy & The Thin White Duke back on earth?

    Bowie wasn't heterochromatic, actually, he just had one pupil larger than the other. True story.

    Look at my eyes, Faye. One of them is a fake because I lost it in an accident. Since then, I've been seeing the past in one eye and the present in the other. So, I thought I could only see patches of reality, never the whole picture. I felt like I was watching a dream I could never wake up from. Before I knew it, the dream was over.

    Trying super hard not to read it in his voice. Good work.

  • Jenness

    They are gorgeous but it probably would freak you out even more than normal with the whole "sees both world's" thing when the cat just meows for no reason as cat's do. "Mittens...stop scaring me ....what are you looking at...there is nothing there....stop that....." GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH *you're dead, ghost got you, Mittens is a beauty but also a DEVIL CAT!*

  • I'm in love.

  • Meh

    Add 10 pounds and imagine two brown eyes and thats one of my cats. God i love cats. I wish i could get more but it would be awkward with 10+ cats.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Pair these cats with Sarah McDaniel and a hologram of David Bowie and you've ruled the Internet via heterochromia!

  • Thinger

    Pretty sure David Bowie just had a paralyzed pupil.


  • Thinger

    Oop. anisocoria...and things.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    If by "things" you mean "heterochromia," then yes.

  • Thinger

    His one eye just appears discolored because of the permanently dilated pupil.

    It is not heterochromia as both his eyes are blue.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    I saw he was listed as heterochromatic in lots of places, but I guess there's a bit of "debate" about it. I understand what you mean now.

  • Thinger

    Yar. I actually thought he had heterochromia alongside the permanently dilated pupil (still looks slightly brown or green in some images) until I saw a documentary or interview on TV and heard the story of the fight.

    They're quite beautiful. :)
