We’ve fallen in love with these cat twins who have different coloured eyes

We’ve fallen in love with two adorable twin cats who have contrasting blue and green eyes.

Iriss and Abyss live with their owner Pavel Dyagilev, 34, in Russia.

Pavel says that most people ask whether the cats are real due to their unusual appearance.

The white cats have a condition called heterochromia iridis which causes each eye to vary in colour.

Pavel said: ‘When I found an ad on social media that two kittens were seeking a new home I never imagined that I’d end up with two.

‘But I looked through the pictures of kittens and saw two twins, always together on the photos. And my heart melted.

‘Heterochromia by itself is not such a rare condition. This is a condition most commonly seen among white-colored felines but may appear in all other cats who carry the white spotting gene too. It is really seldom where there are twin cats from one litter who both have heterochromia, especially when their parents do not have this condition and the other kitten also has no heterochromia.’

Pavel adds that most people are wowed by Iriss and Abyss’s appearances, and even those who aren’t ‘cat people’ are mesmerised by their eyes.

The cats have even become online celebrities with their own Instagram accounts, where followers love looking at photos of their pretty eyes.

Pavel added: ‘The girls don’t feel starstruck by their online following. But they have all the features to be real stars.

‘They do not go out to exhibitions or crowded places because it is a huge stress for them. So our Instagram is a perfect source for the world to meet the unique beauty of Iriss and Abyss.’
