Genetic condition: Olive, an Oriental cross breed bought from a pet sale website by her cat-loving owner, has 'majestic' two-tone eyes caused by Sectoral Heterochromia iridis

Genetic trait: Olive, a unique mix of Oriental cat breeds, was adopted from an online pet marketplace by her devoted feline enthusiast owner. Olive’s striking two-tone eyes are considered ‘majestic’ due to a genetic condition known as Sectoral Heterochromia iridis.

The condition typically affects white cats because of its connection to low melanin levels

White cats are usually prone to this condition due to their low melanin levels. This genetic trait often affects them more than other cats. Kim got the kitten to join her family of four other cats without realizing the uniqueness of Olive’s eye color when she was still a kitten. As Olive grew, her eyes gradually changed color, surprising everyone with their distinctive two-tone appearance.
