Scottish Fold kittens with blue eyes

Scottish Fold kittens with blue eyes are the number one discussion topic!
Many people want to have a Scottish Fold kitten with blue eyes. The dream of such people is feasible.
But there is a feature that must be considered when you make the final choice about buying such a kitten!
In many cases, you are given the opportunity to choose a kitten at a young age (when the kitten is not yet three months old). You look at the pictures of kittens at this young age and see that the kitten has blue eyes. Yes, but there is a catch: all kittens of all colors at such a young age have blue eyes! As they grow older, the kittens' eyes change their color, and, over time, the kitten will have an eye color that matches its color. In adulthood, a fold-eared kitten can have yellow or orange eyes, green or emerald, and in rare cases, blue eyes!
If it is important for you that your adult cat has blue eyes, then you need to read this article and make the right choice 🙂

Why do all Scottish Fold kittens have blue eyes at a small (young) age?

You know from the course of mathematics that there are theorems that require proof, and there are axioms that we accept as a fact, which does not require proof. 
In order not to go into an extensive course of genetics, let us take the fact that all Scottish Fold kittens of absolutely all colors (at a young age, up to 3 months) have blue eyes. This fact will be considered an axiom 🙂
¿ Will the eye color change as the kitten grows?
• Yes, definitely change! In the process of growing up, a pigment that paints the eyes with color appears. Eye color will match the color of the kitten.
¿ Do all Scottish Fold kittens change their eye color as they grow older?
• No, not at all! Scottish Fold kittens that have a color-point gene and are born from two ponted parents will have blue eyes in adulthood.

Which kittens will have blue eyes when they grow up and become adults?

Only adult Scottish cats that have the color-point gene and are born from parents who also have the color-point gene will have blue eyes!
How does it work?
As it was already written above, the “color-point gene” gives a blue color to the eyes for the whole life.
If a Scottish Fold kitten has such a gene, then the likelihood that the eyes will be blue is great.
For a 100% guarantee that the eyes will always be blue, it is necessary to fulfill one of the conditions:
Condition 1. Both parents must have a color-point gene and must be of pointed colors (the color of the parents must be a color-point, tabby point or chinchilla point). In this case, when both parents of a kitten are not just carriers of the color-point gene, but also are owners of the pointed color, then in the litter of such parents only ponted kittens will be born that will grow up and turn into magnificent cats with blue eyes! 🙂
Condition 2. One of the parents must have the pointed color (color-point, tabby point or chinchilla point), and the second parent may be of a different color, but genetically it must have a color-point gene (must have a pointed parent in the pedigree). In this case, the probability of having a Scottish Fold kitten that grows up and becomes handsome with blue eyes, of course, exists. But there will not be very many such kittens in the litter. Therefore, before buying a kitten from such a breeding pair, it is necessary to determine exactly what color the kitten has. If it is determined that the kitten has one of the color-point, tabby-point or chinchilla-point color variations, you can buy such a kitten as its eyes will always be blue.
In the event that one of the parents has a pointed color, and the second parent of the kitten not only does not have a pointed color, but does not have pointed parents and ancestors in the pedigree, the probability of having a pointed kitten will be zero!
