White Cats Deaf Eyes

White cats deaf eyes. Another common feature of white cats to highlight is the fact they can have eyes of almost any color. Black and white cats with blue eyes have a much more common type of hearing and vision problem that may be related to their eye color. Many cats are born with congenital deafness which causes deafness in the cat as it ages instead of later on.
And if the white cat has a different eye color for each eye heterochromia. Statistically white cats with blue eyes with congenital deafness make up around 1 to 15 of the total cat population. Another thing about blue-eyed white cats is that they are photophobic.
First of all it can be said that not all white cats are deaf but they are more likely to be deaf since they carry the so-called gene W White of white in English especially those that have one eye of each color or blue eyes. 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. 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.
If a white cat has 2 blue eyes it is 3-5 times more likely to be deaf than a cat with 2 non-blue eyes and a cat with 1 blue eye is about twice as likely to be deaf as a cat. About half of all white cats are deaf and people numbers improve in cats with blue eyes with deafness typically discovered on the identical facet because the blue eye left blue eye deaf in left ear. 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.
These cats are three to five times more likely to be deaf than white cats with non-blue eyes. When one or both eyes are blue anywhere from 60 to 80 of white cats will be deaf. 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.
