Her name is beauty just to look at her , her eyes look black if you look really close up they appear three colors but when she gets her picture take they are either sky blue or teal. How common is this.
- Nearly all blue-eyed (adult) cats owe their eye colour to Siamese genetics, the blue eye colour resulting from a mutation that affects tyrosinase, one of the enzymes involved with melanin production, linked with the cs gene. Because of this pigment restriction, the eyes appear blue because the top layer of the iris is not covered in another color, allowing the blue show through. The back of the eye is also lacking in pigment, giving these cats' pupils a strange red reflection in the dark, and allowing the eyes to change shades of blue with varying lighting.
Blue-eyed black cats are an example of incomplete genetic dominance - an hypermelanistic cat who carries, and partially expresses, the temperature-sensitive albino gene found in the Siamese - and the Tonkinese is the best possibility for immediate ancestry in blue-eyed black cats. The word, "rare," is so overused on today's world that it has almost no meaning, but in the case of a blue-eyed black cat, the word, "rare," can be used without a second thought.
There's a second possibility, even rarer, however - the Ojos Azules Cats of New Mexico have naturally-occurring blue eyes which aren't linked to the cs gene, and which are, now and then, seen in solid black:
This is so awesome to see and read! I never thought twice about my cat's blue eyes other than how beautiful they are and how I never could get a picture of them without them reflecting red!! Her pupils are always huge unless she is sun bathing and then they are still fairly large. 1CatOverTheLine
do you know if her baby blues causes any sight issues? She is the only cat I've ever known to hardly ever land on her feet! Her name is Figaro and she is mostly black with some white. And one of the most people loving affectionate cats I've ever known or seen!
Figaro makes my daughters' and my life so happy! They love her so much they fight over who can touch her!
I found a few pics to add of her. One is on the day we found her and her sister (her sister is mostly black).
Hope y'all enjoy!!
She also loves to sit on my upper back while I'm busy with something and LOVES bringing me her "babies" like our dog's toys, socks, slippers, her toys, etc. Just glad it's nothing that was or is alive...
