Oliver the Albino(?) Cat



I have been pet sitting a gorgeous white cat named Oliver since Monday (Today was my last day, unfortunately). He is such a sweetheart! Oliver is said to be a Siberian, and I am thinking that he may be Albino as well because of his light blue eyes and the fact that his pupils appear to be a reddish color. However, I can't be sure if that alone means that he is indeed Albino.

Anyhow, here is a video I captured of Oliver today. He was moving around a lot so it was difficult to keep up with him. :)

  2. What a beauty! And so affectionate and loving. I can see why it'll be hard to let him go. :(

  3. normally animals with the albino strain have ruby eyes as there is no clolour pigment at all not even light blue and the reason they look ruby in colour is the blood vessels in the eye are reflecting the light,so he is probabley not a true albino but has some of the ruby effect because he has only a light pigment in the Iris,but he so cute!xx Rachel

  7. He's adorable! I actually wrote about something similar, with the blue eyes thing. Well, more specifically when animals (or people) have 2 different colored eyes it's called heterochromia. It has to do with pigmentation and stuff.

  9. Awww... Oliver seems to be a really nice guy. Maybe you'll get to sit with him, again. That would be nice, huh?
