An "odd-eyed" white cat named Apollo is the second Cat Picture of the Week for February, 2013. While white cats with blue eyes are often deaf, odd-eyed cats (cats with one blue eye, and one green, brown, or hazel) are deaf only on the side with the blue eye.

Apollo stored up a lifetime of loving memories during the short time he lived here on Earth with Lena, her other cats, and her dogs. She adopted him from a rescue called CAPS, in Houston, although she had only gone there to accompany a friend. Lena writes, "Po was more godlike than catlike or even animal like. I say this not to be cute or mythic, but because I have never shared time with such a fabulous creature such as this...white cat. Even people who didn't like cats liked Mr. Po."
