Why are kittens’ eyes blue? — 6 Comments

  1. i had a white deaf cat one eye all blue. the other looked like a line was drawn straight across it top was copper bottom ble.

  2. Hi Michael,

    Super interesting and well-explained.

    I’ve always wondered why kittens were born with blue eyes.

    Melanin is the same stuff that makes a person get tan after being in the sun for a while. I had no idea it was behind the coloring.

    The occurrence of a cat having one eye a certain color and the other eye a different color always intrigued me. But the coolest part of the post was at the very end where you said, “Deafness in white cats is a result of a lack of pigment on internal ear structures”. I was amazed to hear that deafness had to do with pigment!

    Cool stuff.

  3. I used to get excited, waiting for the day the kittens eyes would change. I was surprised when one kitten’s eyes never changed. In fact, they became such a beautiful color of blue. It’s the feature that sticks out all these years later as clear as when I was a boy. What a beautiful cat he grew into. Loud and big! Thanks
