The Eyes Have It

Angel - with light green eyes
Spike - with his amber eyes. In real life, these are a deep gold colour.
Sebastian - with an odd mix of color. One pure blue eye..the other a greenish gold with a ring of blue around the iris
Sadie - with her tilted green eyes. They are similar in color to Angel's eyes but the shape is so very different and she has a thin white hooding on the inside .She actually tilts her head to look at us so I wonder if she has difficulty seeing clearly.

A couple of weeks ago I saw a great shot of Casper's eyes on Cat's blog. http://catscats-catrina.blogspot.com/2010/10/wordless-wednesday.html
I asked hubby to take photos of our four furries and it surprised me to see how very different each set of cat's eyes look when the rest of the cat is not in sight. For regular readers...can you figure out who is who? Hint...photos have been added in the order each cat joined our family. Nov 15th postscript...names now added!

Angel, Spike, Sebastian, Sadie? What a fantastic post, such great pictures :-) They all have beautiful eyes and yes, so different.

Ben has green eyes and Archie has the deepest golden amber in addition to Casper's baby blues. Ash's eyes change depending on the light and I can't really get a handle on what colour they are!

Beautiful! You should frame those and put them up.

Now I'm going to have to try and get close-ups of my cats and see if they look as nice. Maybe if I remove the eye gunk first...

Angel, Spike, Sebastian, and Saide...such beautiful and unique eyes!

I will try to get good close-ups of my boys too. Question - Did you try to get just the eyes, or did you do a bit of cropping afterward?

@SuziQCat: Hubby used head shots and then cropped down to just eyes. (Except for Spike..he had to keep Spike's pink nose in the pic or would have had to crop part of an eye!)

So fascinating to see how different they all are! And impossible to say whose eyeas are the prettiest - I love them all! White cats are so lovely, their snow white fur, their jewel-toned eyes, and their sweet pink noses!

Aw, what gorgeous eyes! I'm going to have to do that for a post...of course I'll have to shoot Scouty with a zoom!

Angel
Spike
Sebastian
Sadie

OK, let me guess. Sadie, Spike, Sebastian and Angel. Am I right?

I was looking back at some of the pictures, I have to admit, but it's hard to see Sadie's eyes in any of them. They could be green or gold, but this is what I came up with.

Great idea!

Theese are THE coolest pictures ever! And Sebastian's eyes, theese are so unique!
