Cats that look like tigers


facial-masks that make cats look like tigers are popular around the world. Cats that look like tigers

(also known as "tigereye" cats) are not a new idea. The name comes from the striped patterns

in the eyes of the feline with big eyes, such as tigers. The "tiger eye" phenomenon was first described

by a Chinese veterinarian (who also helped to identify the underlying cause) in 1909. It was first

popularized in the United States by Dr. William Castle and his book "Tiger: A Cat's Eye View."

There are several variations of this concept. Many are very realistic looking, and can be quite

popular and popular, some less so. Many are quite expensive, ranging from US$100 upwards. Others

are much more realistic in appearance and are more expensive (many in the US$300 range). Some

variations can be purchased online as well.

History of the "tiger eye" phenomenon

The earliest reference to this feline phenomenon was described in 1909 by a Chinese

veterinarian, Mr. C.C. Li. He noted that in an area of Shandong province, which is in the northwest

of the country, there was a peculiar breed of cat that had a distinct white "tiger eye" in its

eyelid. He described that they were found in the area and he noted the breed's ability to run and

climb trees. He observed that the cats were "very fond of jumping into wells or creeks and

were never captured by their owners." He was particularly fascinated by the color and pattern of

their eyes.

His observations led him to conclude that the cats' markings were caused by a congenital

disease. He thought that the disease was similar to the albinism in humans. He wrote that the eyes

were "light blue and of very large size." He noted that the cats' eyes could be removed, but the

"tiger eye" remained. He noted that the eyes of all the animals that he had examined looked

remarkably similar. His conclusion was that this was a congenital, inherited disease with

"similar results in the eye" and that it was very unlikely to be a disease of any current use in

medicine. His conclusions were later confirmed by another Chinese vet who examined the same


Dr. William Castle was born in Scotland and came to the United States at the age of 10. He

became a very successful doctor in New York City and was a pioneer in the use of anesthesia for

surgery. He was a prolific writer, and his books were widely popular. He was a vegetarian and

believed that cats were not cruel. In his book "Tiger: A Cat's Eye View", he described the

phenomenon of this unusual eye color in cats. He described that the cats' eyes were "like

diamonds," and noted that they were "of an intense and vivid blue with a golden sparkle." He

said that they had a "sparkling effect when the sunlight fell upon them." He said that they

were a "curious optical phenomenon" and that he was not aware of their existence when he was

a boy. He said that the name "tiger eye" was given to the effect because the eyes of a cat with the

phenomenon were "of a tiger-like color" and were described as looking like a tiger's eyes.

In his book, he described a case that he had seen of a "tiger eye" in a cat. He wrote that it

occurred in the eyes of "a small, spotted, tabby breed of cat, born in a family of 10 cats. The cat

was of unusual size and disposition, with a tendency to jump into well or running water. It was

extremely agile and was fond of playing with the other cats. This cat never attacked them, never

barked, and never growled. It was never held, and it seldom, if ever, came to be called. It was of

a golden color, its eyes were light blue, and its fur was a soft, sandy brown, its ears erect and

large, its nose dark and prominent. At birth, the eyes were so large that they were almost

closed. The cat grew rapidly in size, and, at about 10 months of age, the eyes became much

larger and the irises of a bright, yellowish gold. The eyes themselves remained of a brilliant

blue color and sparkled with a very unusual effect."

Dr. Castle was fascinated with this unusual color and he wrote that he spent "many sleepless

nights of research" on the matter. He spent considerable time searching for the underlying cause

of this color in the cats. He tried numerous remedies and spent a considerable amount of money in

the process. In his book, he described that he spent US$100 of his own money to do so. He wrote

that he experimented with a number of chemicals and treatments for the effect. He noted that

some chemicals were dangerous and he wrote that this is the reason he "preferred to be guided

principally by nature, in order to avoid harm to the eyes of the animals." He tried to use the

chemicals and treatments that were safe for the cat's eyes. He said that the cat's eyes would not

become yellow even when he had treated them with chemicals that made
