Hey guys! Just curious if anyone knows anything about this. When he was a baby, Jasper's eyes were bright blue like most Himalayans'. I've seen this in pictures the breeder showed me before I got him. When we first met, his eyes were sky blue. Not nearly as vivid as in his baby pictures, but striking in their own way.
Now, depending on the lighting I catch him in, his eyes look gold, green, or sky blue. It's absolutely wild, and unfortunately difficult to capture with a camera, which really brings out the green for whatever reason. My vet said he could end up with either gold or green eyes when she last saw him. To me, it still looks like it could break either way. However, I've noticed in the last few days that they are becoming super vivid again, albeit while retaining the mix of colors in his unique ratio. It's like their saturation is slowly being dialed up, if you know what I mean.
All of Jasper's littermates, his parents, and his adult sister (who was returned to my breeder for behavioral issues - they spayed her and kept her as a pet since she was happiest living with them) had standard vivid blue Himalayan eyes, so he's unique in his family in having the off color, which I think is really interesting from a genetics perspective. I'm not sure if eye color is a single gene or multi gene trait, but I think it's cool that he seems to have unique pigmentation for the breed and I wondered if anyone knew more about this than me? Thanks
