This Week's Theme.....
Shades of Brown
Libby - age 14
Once an indoor/outdoor cat and a terrific hunter, for the last (3) years she's been indoor only and still love to stalk mice (furry ones that smell like catnip - Very spry for her age. She does have (2) different color eyes since about the age of about (8), but it doesn't affect her vision. The vet says that sometimes happen with calico cats (something about the pigment).


Not sure of age, but I'm guessing young ~ he was pretty fearless and tiny.
My SIL's Dog - Mica
(he's about 3 and a puppy mill rescue from GA - very sweet)

  1. I didn't know cats' eyes could change color. We're convinced our younger tuxedo cat is slowly changing to try to match the older tuxedo cat. He keeps adding white patches that match the older cat. His eyes are still darker though. Maybe that will change too.

  3. Wow, the browns in all their glory...fabulous.

    I love calico cats, and that one's eyes are gorgeous. My daughter used to have a calico she named Cleopatra, for her "snooty attitude."

    Mica's brown is wonderful, too.

    Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT

  7. I love Libby! I just want to snuggle her. My sister's cat has one green eye and one blue eye, but he was born that way. He doesn't look as striking as Libby does!

  9. I love pet photos!

    I have a white cat with one blue eye and one green eye, but I did not know that a cat's eye color could change with age. Very interesting!

    Hooray for puppy mill rescues. Mica's a cutie!

  13. Those little guys are all so cute!

    I have a friend who has different colored eyes, but it's so much a part of her that I don't notice anymore unless I'm thinking about it.

  14. Oh my goodness Diane, what cute little creatures! I didn't know cats could have 2 different color eyes but I don't know why I am surprised because I grew up with a boy who had one brown and one blue.

  16. You already know I just love nature and animal shots. The eyes are striking on both Libby and Mica. The chipmunks in my yard have been driving me crazy. This one looks like he's taunting you.

  19. Libby is beautiful! I can tell from the photo that she has a great, vibrant personality! I love that she stalks fluffy ctnip mice...when she was an outdoor cat did sahe ever brings the "gift" of a dead mouse?!

    Mica is beautiful. It's wonderful that's a rescue, I'm so glad your sister adopted Mica. Do you know what kind/breed of dog Mica is?

  20. Mica is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They were bred as companion dogs to royalty long ago. Pretty docile, and just loves be be with their master and/or part a family.

    Libby, when she was indoor/outdoor left birds, chipmunks,mice, moles, a rat, and snakes at our door step (sadly). I am glad she is just indoors. On a good day we would have 2-3 different gifts from her LOL
