Meet This Stunning White Cat With Rare Genetic Condition That Has Striking Two-Colored Eyes
Hailing from Derbyshire, England, Olive is no ordinary cat. This four-year-old feline has mesmerized social media users with her strikingly dual-colored eyes that are set off by an all-white coat.
Olive has a rare genetic condition called sectoral heterochromia, a form of heterochromia in which each of her eyes is divided into two different colors, half yellow and half blue. However, this striking feature has given Olive a huge following on Instagram under the moniker Odd Eyed Olive. According to Caters News, Olive is an Oriental crossbreed and has some Siamese features, including almond-shaped eyes and a white coat. However, her eyes are one of the most captivating features. Olive was bought to her owner Kim's house when she was only a kitten. At that time, the color of her eyes wasn't all that visible. "I didn't chose [sic] her for her eyes," Kim explained. "It was quite dark and when I picked her the lady lifted her in to the light and said she may have odd looking eyes." As Olive started to grow, her dual-toned eye color started to surprise everyone. "I didn't know how her eyes would turn out," Kim recalled.
