Bowie the cat got his name thanks to his unusual appearance.
The beautiful kitty was born with different colored eyes and when his adoptive mom Maria Lloret first saw him, she knew that she had to name him after the famous singer David Bowie, who had different colored eyes just like him.
While David Bowie’s mismatching eyes came from a condition called anisocoria, in which his pupils differed in size, Bowie the cat’s dual eye color is due to a condition called heterochromia.
Lloret shares beautiful pictures of Bowie and his striking eyes under the handle bowie_the_ cat and we just can’t get enough. Take a look at our favorite pics below.
