Yeah. He's been an outdoor cat roaming the block since before we moved in 8 years ago. But the last couple of years he's really been showing his age. And come to think of it, I haven't seen him for several months now.Jeanie said:That's really unusual, isn't it? Tom looks as if he might have had an interesting life, but look at the dignity in that face.
Yes, Ojos Azules have blue eyes and it's believed to occur due a dominant gene, If that's the case there shouldn't be a problem producing black cats with blue eyes. Just breed an Ojos Azules with another black cat (I don't know if Ojos Azules can have black coats). This "blue-eyes-gene" isn't linked do deafness as the regular one is.Majicou said:Pretty cat! I heard of a naturally occuring blue eyed gene in cats which is called 'Ojos Azules' (I think this is Spanish for blue eyes). I've recently come back from Kefalonia, where there are lots of feral cats. Many of these had blue eyes, but they obviously weren't pedigrees. Of course, with ferals, there are so many genes getting mixed up, so you get some really unusual looking cats. When I get the photos back I'll post some up here.
