SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— If you’re like me, you may be fascinated by the fact that some pets’ eyes can change colors. With puppies it’s normal, according to Dr. Jennifer Scarlett with the SF SPCA.
“They’re born with yellow or amber eyes and those will change to a dark brown by about eight weeks of age,” she said.
Scarlett said cats’ eye color changes with age and it’s something called iris atrophy. “Literally you’ll see this kind of cobwebby appearance to the iris.”
