The mystery and beauty of albino cats
What makes albino cats unique? Here's what you should know
An albino cat lies on a white backdrop. The cat has one pale blue eye and one pinkish-red eye.

With their striking white fur, pink noses, and often pale blue eyes, albino cats are a unique and rare breed that has captivated the attention of many cat lovers around the world. That being said, there's a lot to learn about these felines beyond their stunning appearances, such as their genetics, health concerns, and even their significance in popular media. Here's what you should know about these incredible cats.
Health and genetics
Albinism is a genetic condition that results in a lack of pigmentation in the skin, hair, and eyes. In cats, the condition is caused by a mutation in one of several genes responsible for producing melanin, the pigment that gives color to the hair, skin, and eyes. Unlike other white cats, which get their pristine coats from a dominant white or white spotting gene, albino cats lack melanin altogether.

While albino cats are known for their icy blue eyes, their lack of melanin can also result in pink or red eyes. However, albinism in cats is sometimes more than just a cosmetic issue. It can also affect their hearing, as the absence of pigment in the eyes can result in deafness, with roughly 40% of white or albino cats with at least one blue eye being born with congenital deafness. Not only can their hearing be affected, but albino cats also exhibit an increased sensitivity to light. (Contrary to popular belief, albino cats aren't more prone to color blindness than other cats.)

What you can do to help your cat after surgery and show your pet how much you love them
Here's how to keep your kitty feeling safe, comfy, and calm post-op

You love your kitty. Sometimes, that means agreeing to send them in for cat surgery. Whether it’s a standard spay or neuter procedure, necessary dental work, or something more worrisome like removing a cancerous tumor, you’ll want to ensure you give your furry friend some extra TLC post-operation.

Your feline friend may also need you to be patient with them. Cat behavior after surgery can vary from pet to pet, but they may be slightly shyer, lethargic, or easily irritated for a while. The good news is that your cat should go back to normal — and hopefully wind up as an even healthier version of themselves soon. Knowing what to prepare for can ensure your cat feels safe, loved, and comfortable after surgery.
