A Beautiful White Feral Cat
by Jan Plant
Spook Eyes - Odd Eyes - this is because the gene that takes colour from the coat also takes colour from one eye (the blue one)
Out of all the 11 cats in the "Wild Bunch", this beauty really stands out. I know cats groom themselves but even with all the mud and rain we've been having, Splitter, manages to keep his beautiful white coat immaculate.
He's about 11 months old now.I found him and his two litter mates eating out of trash cans across the street one early morning. So me being me, I came home grabbed some food and dumped some out for them.
The next morning I went out with my coffee on our deck fed the "wild bunch" and kept hearing a cat calling. Went to the edge of the deck and the resident old tom was calling those three kittens.
I just sat back and watched the show. After several days I noticed something different that I've never seen in a cat. Splitter has one blue eye and one yellow eye. His brother has yellow eyes and his sister has blue eyes. What an odd group they are.
Splitter will come greet you if you stand still and rub against your legs but the second you make any move to touch he's gone.
I'll miss him and his litter mates. Come January they'll be going to their forever home further in the country to live on a farm with horses and cattle. But I know they will be well tended and loved.
