Cats have some of the most beautiful eyes in the animal kingdom, but when they're blue they're particularly striking. Because they don't develop eye pigmentation until they're about six weeks old, all kittens are actually born with blue eyes, but it is rare to have them as adult cats. Perhaps, why they are so intriguing?
If you want to adopt a cat that keeps those baby blues into adulthood, your best bet is to pick one of the following breeds: Balinese, Birman, Himalayan, Javanese, Ragdoll, Siamese, Snowshoe, Tonkinese, Turkish Angora, or Ojos Azules. However, it's worth keeping in mind that not all these cats are necessarily guaranteed blue peepers, according to Catster. Much like humans, a feline's eye color can change over time, especially while your pet is young.
But no matter how long our beloved kitties stay blue-eyed, we can't help but be captivated by this (sometimes short-lived, sometimes long-lasting) feature. Check out some of our favorite cats and kittens with blue eyes and see if you don't agree!
