Ojos Azules History
In 1984 a feral cat colony was discovered in New Mexico. One female, a tortoiseshell with stunning eyes named Cornflower, was rescued and bred to unrelated males. The resulting kittens all had her stunning blue eyes showing that the eye color gene is a dominant one. Current investigation is underway to see if the blue eye gene can be preserved and the breed further developed and eventually released for public consumption.
