    here she is,,,unlike normal albino cats that have blue eyes and are def,blind...mine has green eyes and is not blind or def.

    it sounds really strange but when its really hot outside we have to put suncream on her ears and nose..as she gets burnt easily.

    pictures not on here yet unable to upload..but pic on profile

    She is lovely, but not an albino :)

    A true albino cat would have pink eyes. (like any albino animal)

    Your cat's white colouring is caused by a dominant white gene (albino is recessive). The white "hides" whatever colour the cat would have been without this dominant gene.

    We have 2 white cats and both are polydantics.
