Name Ideas for Odd-Eyed Cats With Heterochromia

Does your cat have one gold eye and one green eye? One blue eye and one brown eye? How special! You cat has heterochromia, a term that means two different colors ("hetero" means different; "chromia" means colors). Melanin is what determines eye color, so it's possible that your cat has the following unique eye colors:

  • Complete heterochromia: One iris is a completely different color than the other.
  • Partial heterochromia: Partial heterochromia refers to an iris with two tones, while the other iris is the predominant color.
  • Central heterochromia: The color change is mostly around the center of one pupil and radiates outward.

i named my minecraft cat opal. i have all 10 cat breeds tamed. you should tame them they're so helpful! they scare away creepers, aswell as hissing at phantoms. they even sleep with you and they sometimes bring back treats but its very rare. tbh they are better than dogs in my opinion, and i'm a dog person.
