Ojos Azules is Spanish for “blue eyes”. And that’s what you notice first when you see an Ojos Azules no matter if it’s for the first time, or any time!
The deep blue of their eyes against coats of any color – but mostly with white patches typically on their feet and tail tip – creates a striking contrast that you won’t forget. The Ojos Azules, a medium-sized, shorthaired cat, originated in a New Mexico feral colony and a tortoiseshell female named Cornflower.
In 1992 only 10 Ojos Azules were counted for, and today a New Breed program and a group of dedicated breeders are working to expand the gene pool and help the breed compete for Championship status.
