Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


What is the process of kitten eye color changes?

Ok so I hi guys! I'm new and have just adopted a kitten that is now between 8-10 weeks old. He weighs 2 lbs. Anyways, when I got him they said he had Chrystal blue eyes. His eyes appeared to be dark blue to green around the iris to me tho. Not very noticeable. His blue seems almost purply blue around the edges. After studying this I could tell it was an illusion from his veins in his eyes. He is solid white btw. So after a couple of days the green was more pronounced and it was a definite line dividing where the green stopped and blue color began. It doesn't gradually fade to blue. So now last night looking at him the green is darker and the blue has lost the purply hue to it, but it's still a definite edge. My question is.. During the color changing process kittens eyes go thru, is it a sublte all over color shift that slowly fades to another color? OR... Does the color change start around the iris until it takes over the whole iris to the edges? Or will my cat have dichronic irises?
