Cat Breeds With Blue Eyes

Ragdoll cat breed

Want a closer look at the Ragdoll’s striking baby blues? You probably won’t have to work too hard to make that happen. This cat breed is known for his affectionate (and floppy) nature and tends to get along with the whole family — including the family dog.

Tonkinese Slideshow

Although not every Tonk is a blue-eyed beauty, the breed is quite well known for having eyes of aqua. However, the breed can also be found with sky blue, violet or greenish-gold eyes that are just as lovely.

Four Birman kittens

The Birman’s eyes have been described — aptly, we might add — as piercing and sapphire-colored, and that long, soft coat, which comes in all pointed colors, only makes them stand out more.

Balinese, a cat breed you've probably never heard of

It’s hard to pick a singularly distinctive feature on the Balinese — her silky hair, plumed tail, large ears and wedge-shaped head are all notable. Her stunning blue eyes only add to her beauty!

The Siamese is one of the world’s best known (and most recognizable) cat breeds. His striking color points and distinctive blue eyes are almost as famous as the breed’s endless curiosity.

Turkish Van

The Turkish Van is most renowned for his love of the water, but those familiar with the “swimming cat” know that she can be found with brilliant blue, gold or odd eyes (one of each color).
