Hello guys!
so my kitty is roughly 10 weeks old.I got her when she was around 5 weeks old. Her eyes have not changed since she was about 6 weeks old. When I first got her, her eyes were a bluish green but they were pretty uniform in color. At around 6 weeks her eyes started to get more yellowish green around the outside. Now at 10 weeks, she still has the blue in the center and the yellowish green around the outside as she did at 6 weeks. I am posting it here because I mainly would like to know if it is likley that they will remain this color or if they are still changing. Also, Is there any cause for concern? Her eye site seems to be just fine. The first photo is her eyes at 5 weeks, second is at 6 weeks and third is eyes now at 10 weeks.

Very pretty!

At this age, kittens' eye color is still changing. Most cats have their adult eye color by around 8-10 months, but eye color can keep developing for up to two years. Take lots of pictures as your kitten develops, it's fun to look back at baby pictures!

Was there a reason your kitten had to leave her mother so young? Or was she a rescued foster baby without a mom?

On the third photo, we do see somewhat of the third eyelid. To see a tiny hint is common, but this is more than just barely a tiny hint...

So its possible there is some inflammation going on in her. Often its "just" worms. Has she been properly dewormed?

She was falling asleep in the last photo! That’s why her third eyelids were out so much.

mom not sure what she was taken from her mom so young. A homeless lady gave her to my friend in a Walmart parking lot at 5 weeks old so I have no way of knowing her past.
