Stunning Cat Called Joseph Has Two Different Coloured Eyes

Stunning Cat Called Joseph Has Two Different Coloured Eyes

A stunning cat called Joseph has been wowing social media users with his unusual eyes - one of which is blue, while the other is yellow.

Joseph, a two-year-old Scottish Fold cat, was adopted by owner Evgenii Petrov back in 2019.

Petrov, 29, had 'almost lost hope' that he would be able to find a kitten he had a connection with, but then found the animal that would change everything.

Petrov, who lives in Saint Petersburg in Russia, said when he first saw a photo of Joseph on the internet, he 'didn't believe' the cat was real, as the eyes were two completely different colours.

And it seems many other people had some reservations as well, as Joseph's breeder was unable to sell the cat, despite trying to flog him for five months before Petrov came along.

Petrov said: "It definitely was love at first sight.

"When I saw his photo I didn't believe he was real and I also didn't believe he hadn't been sold for five months.

"I called and I was happy when I heard that the photo was real, and a day later Joseph was at home."

Petrov said that Joseph's eye condition, which is called heterochromia, thankfully doesn't cause the feline any health complications.

He continued: "Heterochromia is a rare condition especially in Scottish Fold cats.

"The cat still has sharp sight though, he just looks different."

Rare Genetic Condition Leaves Cat With Dazzling Two-Tone Eyes

Petrov shares photos of his unique cat on Instagram under the handle @who_is__joseph.

Joseph has a small but loyal online fanbase, with his 585 followers regularly commenting on his pictures to say how beautiful he is.

One person wrote: "He is stunning!"

Another added: "Those eyes are gorgeous!"

Of course, cat content will always be a huge hit with the internet, which seemingly can't get enough of our feline friends.

Another moggy recently found similar love online when her owner started sharing photos of her online, proudly showing off her bat-like appearance.

Lucy the cat, who lives in Israel, has a condition called hydrocephalus, which means spinal fluid is not absorbed by her body and instead accumulates around the brain.

Because of this, she has an oversized head, which - along with her hairless black skin - makes her look a lot like a bat.

Owner Zilla Bergamini, 44, decided to celebrate her distinctive look by setting up a social media account for her one-year-old pet, having now amassed a following of 29,000 fans on Instagram.

Computer programmer Zilla said: "Lucy was born with hydrocephalus and it made her skull weird because she had a lot of pressure when she was tiny.

"Eventually, her body managed to keep the pressure to a minimum so she never really experienced neurological issues.

"Right now her life is basically normal."
