Meet Bowie the rescue cat who has charmed the internet with his incredibly unique blue and green eyes.
The beautiful kitty was born with two different colored eyes and was named after David Bowie who had different colored eyes just like him.
David Bowie’s mismatched eyes came from a condition called anisocoria, but Bowie the cat’s dual eye color is due to a condition called heterochromia.
Heterochromia causes changes to the body’s pigment which often results in two different colored eyes.
“Bowie is very playful, sometimes too much! He loves playing with other cats, but sometimes the other cats don’t want to play with him!”
Like any proper cat, Bowie loves a good nap and of course eating. “We haven’t found a food he doesn’t like,” Maria said.
“When he sees the bag of treats he always starts purring instantly. Oh! And his favorite toys are little mice
Cats with heterochromia are sometimes referred to as “odd-eyed cats”
Odd-eyed cats are usually white, but they can be any color as long as they carry something called the “white spotting gene”.
Bowie is an adventurous and charismatic kitty whose personality matches his dramatic look.
He lives in Alicante, Spain, and loves going on adventures with his mom.
This unique kitty was originally living on the streets, before being taken into a vet’s office.
There he was adopted by Lloret and has been living with her ever since.
“Rescuing an animal from a shelter instead of buying always saves lives.”
“There are so many animals looking for a second opportunity, for a family to love them.
