Eye Colors

 

This page is to show different eye colors. All kittens are born with dark "muddy" blue eyes. The eyes then change to a lovely blue color. I have found around 6 weeks the eyes start to change into their adult color. If the kitten will have blue eyes as an adult, then the eyes will stay the blue color. These are photos of cats we have bred or cats that were brought into our home. 

 

A "full color" cat is born with their lovely body colors.

They have deep gold eyes, but occasionally they can have green eyes.... 

"Sepia" cats are born with color, but it is very soft and pale. These are called "thermals". They have amazing seafoam green eyes! Occasionally they can have a goldish tinge to the green. Sepia's are my favorite....

"Mink" cats are born white, but their color starts appearing within hours of birth. They are also called "thermals". They will continue to darken for up to a year, although most of their color is obvious by the time they are about 4 months. Minks usually have baby blue eyes, but they can also have a goldish-green color....

"Points" are born solid white. These are called "thermals". Their color will start coming in around 1 week of age and will continue darkening for up to a year. Siamese are "pointed" cats. Points can have various shades of blue eyes. Dark blue eyes are rare in Sphynx...

White cats can have blue eyes, gold eyes, green eyes, or "odd" eyes (one blue eye and one green eye). There is no way to know what eye color a white is going to produce. There is no known "odd eye" gene. As far as the research that has been done so far, getting odd eyed kittens is completely random.We have found that certain cats do produce more odd eyed kittens then others though...

Note- There are rare occurances of odd eyes in cats that are "full color" and "non-white". This also appears to be random. Also, there is a new breed of cat called "Ojos Azules" and they have dark blue eyes. They are neither white nor thermal. Their eyes are due to a special gene found in the breed.
