Zephyr <3 White odd-eyed Turkish Angora kitten. He's 5 months old at the moment :)

ZEPHYR'S FACEBOOK FANPAGE


. . FAQ:
Are his eyes photoshopped?
No, his eyes are not photoshopped. Zephyr has a condition called heterochromia, also known as odd-eyes. This causes him to have two different eyecolours.

Is his eye naturally this blue?
Yes, I don't edit his eyes apart from the general editing of the whole picture. I don't make them more vibrant or anything. The exact shade of blue kinda depends on the lighting, but his eye is extremely blue for Turkish Angora's and other white cats anyway. Normally they're very light and you only see this kind of blue on pointed cats like Siamese.

Is he blind in his blue eye?
No, he isn't.

I heard that dominant white cats with blue eyes are deaf. Is Zephyr deaf on the side of his blue eye?
Again no. Zephyr has perfect hearing. It's a common misconception that white cats with one or two blue eyes are always deaf. However, this is not true. About 70% of the white odd-eyed cats can hear. The chances of hearing are even bigger if the cat was born with has any speck of colour in his coat even if this fades with age. Zephyr was born with a few dark spots on his head [picture]. He has perfect hearing.

He's real... right?
Most definitely, and I love him and his half sister Aella to bits! ♥

I want to tell you something: Last night I dreamed of him. Or at least of a cat looking exactly the same (:

His blue eye ohmygosh:heart:



Hey I wanted to buy a nice photography camera, and I have a Nikon right now which I had for awhile, but I am in need of a new one. I am looking for a canon camera. I saw you use a canon eos 450d, correct? Do you have any recommendations camera wise? I do like the 450d and I would also be taking pictures of animals like my cat. c: Do you have a link or something to the 450d?

Thank you so much!

Hellooo,

I wouldn't recommend the 450D anymore. It's a GREAT camera and it has served me well but there are newer and better ones out there (last one is 700D or 750D). I do recommend the Canon EOS cameras though, but the 450D is pretty old compared to some of the better ones out there. I actually want to get a new camera myself.

I don't have a link, sorry.

Okay, thanks for the thoughts! I'll have to have a look at the 700-750d cameras, but thank you!

Hmm, do you know a good camera that costs a tad less?

And also, do you prefer Nikon or Canon?

Sorry to bother with the questions.... ._.

Esveeka Featured By Owner May 5, 2013   Digital Artist
I prefer Canon, they're easier to use. Canon EOS 1100D might be a bit cheaper.

:iconfahliadne:
Fahliadne Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Student Digital Artist
So, the higher the numbers, are they cheaper?

Esveeka Featured By Owner May 5, 2013   Digital Artist
Basically, but that has to do with quality. Canon EOS 1000D series are amateur cameras, Canon EOS 100D series are semi-proffessional, 10D series are proffessional and 1d series are just really superduperexpensiveawesome cameras.
