White Cats Deaf Eyes
Theres a key difference.
White cats deaf eyes. Researchers found that only 17 to 22 percent of white cats with non-blue eyes are born deaf. Another common feature of white cats to highlight is the fact they can have eyes of almost any color. Photo by Echo on Unsplash.
White cats simply have a gene for white fur while albinism is a genetic condition that results in a complete lack of color pigmentation in the skin fur and eyes. When one or both eyes are blue anywhere from 60 to 80 of white cats will be deaf. Once again the brilliant scientist was right since between 56 and 90 of cats according to different studies with white coat and blue eye color are deaf from one or both ears.
Whereas there isnt a fact that every one white cats with blue eyes are deaf science has confirmed that the variety of deaf cats with at the very least one blue eye is. However they do have a higher chance to be deaf and the chance increased when the cat has blue eyes. And if the white cat has a different eye color for each eye heterochromia.
This percentage is even higher up to 40 in cats that have only one blue eye and somewhere between 65-85 of all-white cats are born deaf. Many cats are born with congenital deafness which causes deafness in the cat as it ages instead of later on. However in white cats with two blue eyes roughly 60-80 are likely to be deaf.
White cats do not typically have visual or reproductive de- fects but they are prone to the occurrence of blue irises one or both and deafness either unilateral or bilateral. In those cats with eyes of another colour only 10-20 are likely to be deaf. In those with only one blue eye 30-40 will be deaf so the majority will have normal hearing.
If the cat is a ForeignOriental White it carries the gene for Siamese Blue Eyes which is not linked to deafness the gene for Siamese Blue Eyes is linked to cross-eyes instead. Thus cats which are entirely white and have blue eyes are generally deaf. White cats have white coats because the gene for white fur trumps all other potential colors.
