Great pictures, everyone.

Dweamgoil, Egypt is absolutely beautiful. I am, admittedly, biased towards tabbies, having a lovely tabby girl myself, though her eyes are green.

I don't have any great pictures of Cal's eyes, but I have a couple where you can see the difference in his changing eye colour.

Here, you can see that his eyes appear to be pretty bright yellow.



But here, his eyes appear to be more of a grey-ish green.



I can't seem to figure out any rhyme or reason to what causes his eyes to change colour, but I think it's pretty neat all the same.

Yes they do!

I've always loved tabbies, even before I was a cat person. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't tabby markings sort of like human fingerprints, as in there are no two that are exactly the same?

Coda has very distinct markings on her face, legs, and tail, and a very dark stripe down the centre of her back, but the markings on her body are much fainter, and many of the faint stripes that she does have are broken, giving her coat a really beautiful ticked/spotted appearance. Her belly is spotted, too. She's such a pretty princess.

I have 3 cats a siamese mix whose eyes are blue (surprise), my tabby girl has green eyes and my maine coon mix kitten has bright yellow eyes. I don't know about when my older cats were younger as I adopted them as an adult. But my kitten started off with green eyes and they have turned a bright yellow as he got older, it's interesting to see a orange cat with bright yellow eyes in the morning he looks like a lion!

My Gazoo is an orange tabby with one amber eye and one blue eye. He's unique.

So far it is still a myth how gene affect cats eye colors. Personally I like green eyes best.

My Meatball is a Siberian. She is a golden cat, one of the rarest color in cats. However, her eye color is the most common: yellow eyes with a hint of green around pupil. My Metoo is a Birman. Same as all colorpoint cats (she is chocolate point), she has blue eyes. It was sky-blue when she was a kitten, but the color darkened a lot when she grows up

My two youngest dsh's had yellow eyes as kittens but now they are both greenish around the pupil and yellow surrounding that(no they arnt real siblings ). My other is a blue point ragdoll and of course has blue eyes. We got her at six and her eyes are dark blue so not sure what they were as a kitten.
