Meet iriss and abyss- two «eye-catching» sisters from Russia

Humans are quick to judge based on appearances. But differences are what make us unique! Take, for instance, these eye-catching twin kitties from Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Iriss and Abyss are two gorgeously eye-catching cats who live with their owner Pavel Kasianov in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Thirty-one-year-old Kasianov discovered an advertisement for the kitties while he was cruising the computer online.

“I was blown away by their appearance and the fact that they’re twin sisters,” he said in an interview with Bancroft Animals.

The moment Kasianov laid his eyes on the twins’ beautiful set of peepers, he knew he had to give them a home.

Iriss and Abyss have a rare genetic condition called heterochromia which affects the levels of melanin in both of their eyes. Because melanin controls coloring in human and animals, the different levels in each cat’s eyeballs result in a stunningly “eye-catching” effect.

“It’s not a defect, it’s just a genetic lottery,” Kasianov said. “Because their parents are domestic cats. Their father is a black and white cat, and the mother is a white cat.”

Heterochromia can be associated with conditions like blindness and deafness, but fluffy twins Iriss and Abyss are 100% fine.

“They hear and see perfectly well,” their owner explained. He also jokes that they have no trouble hearing a can of food being opened from across the house.

Although Iriss and Abyss give the impression of importance and regality, “My cats are not spoilt,” Kasianov told the Daily Mail UK. He does admit that you do have to curry their favor before they warm up to you, however.

On a typical day, the twins spend their time adventuring around their home and making sure everything is to their liking.

“They wake up as I wake up, have breakfast and then investigate the house.”

“They investigate birds behind the window, each other and stuff like phone chargers, chewing gum, or any other small things left around the house.

Although the twins may look alike, Kasianov assures us they have very different personalities. In an interview with Barcroft Animals, he says Iriss is very easygoing, while Abyss is a much more stubborn and “will communicate with you only when she wants.”

Although these cats may not look like the others, it’s their differences that make them special.

Is maru at it again? Good, because he’s my favorite!

Maru, known for his ability to fit anywhere, especially tiny boxes, is at it again and this time he’s sitting in a glass mixing bowl. I don’t know how it does it. I know he has bones in there somewhere… LOL! This fluffy, lovable goof ball is sure to make anyone’s day a little better. Because seriously, how can you watch this and not smile? That face is just too cute! I love Maru!

Loved this and need more? Of course you do! Meet the sweetest Golden Retriever that is totally obsessed with her toys. So much so that she brings a different one to bed with her every single night. HOW CUTE IS THAT?! I know, I’m totally in love with her too!

Most dogs love their toys so much. Once you match them with one that they really, really love, they form a bond with it. A lot like a child would.


10+ times cats made no sense

There’s no argue that cats are unreasonable most of the time. But that’s not really a bad thing, since they make everything so hilarious.

Of all the nice things you can have, you choose this damn paper bag. Get it together, kitty! It’s not a blindfold!

 It’s roomy here. Why stare at the wall?

Stop it!

 Pancakes hater.

Hatred of pickles.


Why do you have to stand there?

 You’ve come to the wrong neighborhood, kitty!

“Studying? Not in my watch!”

View blocker.

“It’s not your towel anymore.”

 The love for bags and boxes.

“If only I could get there…”

They love to attack your stuffs.

 Or they’ll see an open tank and think: “Hey, that’s for me.”



25+ hilarious photos that prove cats are the biggest assholes

Our pets can, just like us, be assholes. Dogs are a bit clumsy, mischievous, and often motivated by greed. They will rip up your couch cushions just because it’s fun to do. But there’s no malice involved and they really do love you, they are just idiots sometimes.

Cats, on the other hand, are something else entirely. Sometimes it seems like they know exactly what they are doing, and they take a kind of perverse pleasure in pissing you off. They are cold, calculating assholes, and they aren’t shy about it! Why else would they poop in your sink or sit on your pizza?

We asked our readers to send in pics of their cats being mean for no particular reason, and were amazed with the hilariously evil submissions we received. Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and don’t forget to upvote your favorites!

30 amazing cat facts that you probably never knew

Did you know that a noted physicist once made his cat the co-author of his paper because he’d accidentally written “we” instead of “I” throughout his work and couldn’t be bothered at all alto change it?

Also, whether you believe it or not, the British Government has a position called “Chief Mouser To The Cabinet Office” that can only be assigned to a cat. And although this probably won’t surprise you, a study once proved that cats are more than capable of recognizing their owner’s voices, however, simply choose to ignore it.

Here’s the reason why cats rub against legs

Cat lovin’ folks: this is for you. So much can be said for your sweet kitty who loves to take loud indoor jogs at dawn, fights for her right to taste your food, and enjoys smacking other creatures – including you.

Don’t you just love it? Out of all the unique, weird, and cliché cat behaviors your furry friend engages in, one of your favorites has to be the rubbing. Right? Cats love to “hug” your legs with their whole bodies, prompting you to hug them back and go “aww”.

Since you’re so adept at understanding the language of felines, you are positive this means your cat is gaga for you. You can see the cartoonish hearts dancing in her eyes and around her head. And you give the love right back. We get it. But affection isn’t the only reason for the leg cuddle.

Your cat is marking you! Yes, you. It’s Mr. Fluffy McFluffenstuff’s funny way of saying “I hereby declare you to be my one and only piece of property from now until eternity.” And then they do it again just for good measure. Uh huh. It’s the special mark of your beast.

Cats have scent glands located all over their heads and other parts of their bodies which secrete pheromones. They want you to carry their signature scent. Called bunting, a kitty will rub up against you not only to stake their claim, but also to say they feel safe and secure with you.

In order to keep up those vibes, you should smell like them, and then a little bit of you rubs off on them too. As you well know, these special animals have a bevy of other habits that can sometimes make you wonder what planet they dropped in from.

Does yours like to bring home carcasses? Dragged in as either a fresh kill or the tattered remains of whatever it once was, somehow it ends up in your cat’s jaws. Vets say it’s not a gift, but rather an exercise in honing their killer instincts. It’s just prey-hunting at work.

There’s also the glare-stare thing they do that makes you feel like they’re looking deep into your soul. Is it intimidation? Is it true love? Is it zoning out? Honestly, it could be any of those things depending on what’s going on in your environment. Are there other cats who need to be dominated? Are you dishing out enough attention? Is Kitty angry about something? Your guess.

Take a look at this video from New York Magazine to learn more about your adorably purr-fect pet’s communication tactics. Chances are if you’ve have your cat for a while, then you’ve probably figured out most of its cues. If you’re a smidge baffled by your fur baby’s antics and want some insight, then you definitely want to press “play” down below. Enjoy your nuzzled ankles!
