Watch this senior cat's beautiful eyes change from gorgeous blue to emerald green (Gallery)
This beautiful cat had always had the bluest eyes until about a year ago, when one of his eyes began to change its color.
Meet Biggie the cat!
"Our neighbors found him as a stray and asked if we wanted to take him," reddit user rbend said. They couldn't say no.
Though he's a bit of a scaredy cat, once he's warmed up to you, he a very affectionate, loud purrer, and a big cuddler.
Biggie had the bluest eyes, until one of his eyes started to change.
It happened gradually over a year. His eye changed from blue to emerald green.
They took Biggie to the vet to get him checked out, but the vets couldn't find anything abnormal.
"They said it's nothing. I guess it's something that happens with age. I'm not completely sure why it changed but vets have never been worried about it."
Eye color change normally occurs in kittens. "Most kittens are born with blue eyes. As a kitten's sense of sight develops over the next several weeks, his eyes begin to take on a variety of other colors," according to vetinfo.
For older cats, eyes changing color could be a sign of an underlying medical condition or eye damage.
But Biggie is as happy and healthy as can be, so his condition is a mystery.
"This guy just turned ten and he only gets prettier with age."
