10 Adorable Photos of Heterochromia Cats


Heterochromia cats, otherwise known as odd-eyed cats, are felines with different-colored eyes. Heterochromia iridum occurs both in humans and animals, especially cats. It is a condition in which the two irises are different colors. For example, an animal or a human may have one blue eye and one brown eye.

The condition occurs mostly in cats, which makes heterochromia cats even more special. However, heterochromia does not only occurs in the eyes but can as well extend to hair color and skin color. Venus the Two-Face Cat is an example of a feline with complete heterochromia. The adorable and Instagram-famous cat has one blue eye and one yellow eye. Over and above the different-colored eyes, Venus also has a different-colored face: Black and Orange.
