Default Why are the holes in cats fur always in the right places for their eyes?

Here is an example, incase you have never seen a cat before.

That is not at all true. There are often cats born with one eye, or no opening for their eyes.


You only tend to see cats where the eyes line up with the holes in their skin. Thats because they are out having a good time. Its a basic concept of something called "the Theory of Evolution" which I dont really expect you to know anything about.

But be assured that the holes do not always line up with the eyes even if those other cats dont come out to play.
You owe me multiple ThankYou's.

Thank-you for sharing your wisdom with us.

I hope that cat has a good home and loving family because life has been hard to him. If he is yours then I respect you for taking care of a disabled animal.

Hah! You think that beast has it rough? Look what the void spat out, last time I looked in:

I love that picture. Id have loved to have owned that animal.
There are also winged cats (they cant fly but they look great). And two headed snakes. And many others.

One of the sites I registered and never got around to making a webpage for is MutantPets.org
I wanted to set it up like the pet rescue sites for persian cats, or great danes, or pitbulls. A pet rescue site for mutations. But then I have a personal reason for being pushed heavily into that subject about 30 years ago.
