Default Cat eye colour

It seems like cats' eye colour is about as variable as human eye colour. I've seen everything from dark brown to amber to yellow to green to bright blue.

Coda, my tabby girl, has beautiful bright green eyes, and Cal, my grey-and-white boy, has eyes that seem to change between green and yellow. (I think he looks the most striking when his eyes are bright yellow...something about a blue-grey cat with bright yellow eyes just gets me every time.)

I know cat eye colour is genetic, and seems to be linked to colour and breed. Of course, with most cats being such a mix breed-wise, I think it's always neat to see such a diverse mix of coat and eye colours.

What colour are your cats, and what colour are their eyes?

My cat's eyes were brown when she was a kitten, but now they're yellow. Have the pics to prove it, too.

She's a gray tabby shorthair.

I have every conceivable shade of yellow and green but no blues!

See color chart to match:

Lacey - her eyes are blue, but then again she's a fancy schmanzy purebred Balinese.



Azalia - her eyes are light seafoam spray and her coat is a brown patched classic tabby (torbie). She is quite lovely if I say so myself, but I may be biased



Sasha - has marsh fern eyes and he's an all black moggie. He doesn't have a single spot of anything pure but jet black on him.



Egypt - her eyes are somewhere in between spirit whisper and key lime now. They used to be a sparkling champagne color 2 years ago, which was kind of odd since she was already 2 years old when I got her. She is a blue mackerel tabby. Here she is in the Summer of 2011:

Yuki's are a light blue. My eldest daughter has one of her sisters and I'd say Pixel's eyes are slightly more green. These pics are both Yuki Cat eye colour-imageuploadedbypg-free1357597811.073256.jpg

Dark brown cat eyes? I'm curious if that's actually a color cat eyes can come in...

You usually only see amber, green and blue eyes in cats, and in that spectrum there's a wide range... like aqua blue, which is very rare. There's also Persians and a few other breeds that have the very orange/copper type eyes, but that's also quite rare and pretty much breed specific.

EDIT: Ok I went looking and found a picture of a Persian with brown eyes. I think it's pretty rare though.

My cousin, Becca, recently adopted an orange tabby female. Her eyes are very dark amber, and look kind of brown - kind of the color of maple syrup, or burnt caramel. She's very cute.

Beautiful "eye" pictures, dweamgoil!

As for my girls, Abby has green eyes and Muffs are a beautiful shade of blue.

my both kitties are black and like most of black cats their eyes are greenish-yellowish, depending on light shining on them.
Blackberry's eyes are more green that Josie's though.

My mom has black cat and her eyes are yellow, but just different then any other yellow i see in black cats. very intense yellow, stunning.
One of my black cats that I used to have before moving to the US has green-blue eyes, they are very unusual, I love it.
