Mette says: Gucci is my tiny, odd-eyed Norwegian Forest cat. I stumbled upon her one day while randomly browsing the Net and instantly fell in love with her. She is from a small cattery near Copenhagen, Denmark. She's from a litter of four and all her siblings were reserved/sold long before her. I can't believe no one went and picked her. She's the prettiest little thing I have ever set my eyes upon!

There are a lot of rumors about odd-eyed kittens, I'll try to clarify some for you. Many believe that blue-eyed or odd-eyed cats are always born deaf. This is not true! The dominant white gene (W) however, the one that colors the cat completely white, is connected with the hearing gene. The white gene is also connected to the gene that colors the eyes. This is why you often see white cats (especially blue-eyed) being born totally deaf, and why odd-eyed cats are either completely deaf or only deaf on the ear on the side with the blue eye. Deaf cats come in any color but white cats in particular have a higher chance of being born deaf because of this gene. Gucci is hearing on both ears and the mother who has given birth to three litters total has never had a deaf kitten. Another cattery I've been in contact with though just had a litter where three of the white blue-eyed kittens were deaf.

Gucci is a very loving, attention-seeking, and talking cat, speaking back to you when you chit-chat with her or when she thinks you aren't giving her enough attention! She will purr very loud if she sees you come towards her or if you are close to her, and she loves licking you everywhere where skin isn't covered up. She once licked my elbow so much while I was sleeping that it hurt when I woke up! Ever since the first day I got her, she's been full of energy. I have to keep newspaper under her water bowl because she will flip it over to search for food or simply just sit there and hit the water so it gets everywhere till there's no more water left. She looks a lot bigger than she is at the moment because she is developing her winter coat. Fact is that she is still small enough to fit inside my armpit. I love her to bits :) <3

Gucci is absolutely gorgeous! It was hard to pick a favorite, since he's so photogenic that all the photos were great. But I love this one because I adore pink kitty toes!

Gotta love the expression here- the only one where she is less than 200% elegant! She is still completely gorgeous and adorable though! What a stunner.

Gucci is perfect! She looks like a plush toy that I loved as a child; but how much better she is - a purring, snuggling, mischievous version!

Gucci is an astonishing beauty and sounds like a real lover. Obviously you two were meant to be together since no one else grabbed her. Love your pictures of her!

Gosh, it was SO hard to pick a favourite photo as I love all of them! I can see why you wanted her immediately - she is just gorgeous. I love seeing other people's loved kitties and hearing the stories of how they came to be together. Love you Gucci!

What a lovely heart-stealer. She's just a beauty and in that last pic, it would seem she belongs to the Fae realm dancing with the wee folk. Long and healthy life, sweetie. Tummy tickles from Texas.

I had to laugh. Bunny is a cat, as you may have noticed and, just like my two, brings destruction and entropy all over my house. You can usually tell a cat lover by the tears in her sweaters and the fur on her jacket. Best not to look closer. The guy who invented cat litter used to have a commercial in which every chair and sofa in the background was covered with raggedy towels. Enough said.

I love her different eye colors! I have a little white cat with a few gray patches/spots on his left side & he hears/see's just perfectly. I also heard that little wives tale as well about white cats. I'm glad you spoke about that urban legend :) White cats seem slightly rare especially if they have those unique different eyes. You have a beautiful rare jewel :). The reason why nobody had picked her up at the shelter is because she was suppose to be yours & one can see the love in her eyes which she definitely has for you. Enjoy your little love one!
