Eye Colors

Here I've compiled a list of eye colors that are natural for cats, complete with pictures. Just click on the numbers to see the pictures. I found all of the images on Google; they are not my own. The categories go in "rainbow" order, from orange to yellow to green to blue. I also have some genetic information in some of the sections.

Orange Eyes

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5]
All of the warm eye colors, including orange, amber, yellow, and hazel, are technically all part of the "orange" category, genetically speaking. Orange eyes are very dark and warm eye colors, verging on brown. The brighter oranges, particularly the first three, are on the left, while the browner colors, such as the last two, are on the right.

Amber Eyes

[1] [2] [3]
Amber eyes fall under the "orange" category. Amber is a golden brown color. The paler amber is on the left, and the darker, more orangey amber is on the right.

Yellow Eyes

[1] [2] [3] [4]
Yellow eyes also fall under the "orange" category, genetically. The brighter yellow is on the left, while the ones toward the amber end of the spectrum are on the right.

Hazel Eyes

[1] [2] [3]
Hazel eyes are amber eyes with tints of green. Once again, hazel eyes fall under the orange category. The pictures range from paler hazel on the left to darker on the right.

Green Eyes

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5]
Green eyes are in their own category. The pale green is in the first couple of pictures, while a deeper, denser green is shown in the last couple of pictures.

Blue Eyes

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]
Blue eyes are also in their own category. Lighter blue in the first pictures, darker blue in the last ones. White cats with blue eyes are often, but not always, deaf. Pointed cats ALWAYS come with blue eyes; see the Fur Patterns section for more information on pointed cats. Regardless of what these pictures show you, cats that aren't white or pointed cannot have blue eyes. The one exception is "Ojos Azules" cats; this is a rare cat gene found in Mexico where deep blue eyes were dominant and independent of coat color.

Odd Eyes

[1] [2] [3]
Odd-eyed cats are cats with two different colored eyes. Most commonly, this is seen in white cats with one blue eye and one other-colored eye, as in the first two pictures. In the last picture, the cat has one hazel eye and one amber eye. White cats with odd eyes are often deaf in the ear that corresponds to the blue eye.
