Blue eyes

When Michael came to us, his eyes were blue. His whiskers were broken.  The vet said he was about three weeks old at that time. Two months later his eyes turned yellow gold. The housegirl explained to me it was the evidence that Michael has got enough nutrition. But there are healthy cats with blue eyes ,aren't there?


  1. All kittens have blue eyes because the pigment in the iris has not formed fully. This means light is scattered in the iris in the same way light in the sky is scattered making it look blue. The physics behind a kitten's blue eyes and a blue sky is the same.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I learned that blue eyes don't come from lack of nutrition.

  2. Nice blog by the way. It is nice to read about domestic cats in Africa.
