Picture of tortoiseshell kitten with Milky Way eyes

This tortoiseshell kitten has amazing eyes. She is female as are nearly all tortie cats. It’s the eyes which amaze. They remind me of photographs of the Milky Way. The Milky Way is the galaxy that is our home. It is gargantuan. The eyes are glittering, star-studded blue orbs against the fiery red-orange of the tortoiseshell coat. I think this cat lives in Russia. I don’t know why the eyes are so inky blue in colour but I sense that there is a health issue although I hope not. It is the reflections from small light sources behind the photographer which creates the Milky Way eye effect.
