SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft Animals: BEAUTY is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to these beautiful twin cats, who have mismatched eyes. Named Iriss and Abyss, both sisters have a genetic condition called heterochrmomia, which produces a difference in colouration in both eyes due to a lack of melanin. Pavel Kasianov, 31 from Saint-Petersburg Russia, adopted the crossbred 10-month-old kittens after seeing an advert online. As well as their hypnotising eyes, the cats also have snow white fur adding to their unique look. Since having the cats, Pavel has set up an Instagram page for the twins which boasts more than 70,000 followers.

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft Animals: IN A small pool of water in an Indonesian back yard, lives Kojek the crocodile. Kojek spends his days in a small channel of water at the back of Irwan’s garden. The family's washing hangs right next to it and Irwan’s three children are free to play ballgames on the turquoise-green ceramic tiles parallel to the croc. Because he’s been with the same family for 20 years, Kojek, according to Irwan, poses no threat to humans. In the whole time he’s lived with Irwan, there have been no accidents or injuries – to humans at least.

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft Animals: In this episode, Houston SPCA Investigator Randy Farmer is called out to a trailer home out in the country. An elderly couple are said to be living in a tent because their house is overrun with cats. It requires some delicate negotiations, as the woman doesn’t want to let her cats go, but it’s clear that the situation is out of control and harming the cats’ health. Investigator Trischa Price joins forces with Deputy Constable Christine Kendrick to rescue two dogs whose owners are failing to get medical treatment for them, even though one has a serious case of mange and the other is flea-infested. And the SPCA team is called out to a dilapidated lot alongside the highway in Liberty County, where an assortment of livestock is being neglected, including two horses that are emaciated but still being ridden, as their severe saddle-sores testify. The animals are carefully nursed back to health, and the search for new homes for them begins. CREDIT: ITV Global Please note this content is not available for licensing from Barcroft Media Ltd.

Babette De Jonge, 50, founded Wild Cats World in 2010 to help conserve endangered big cats, such as leopards, black-footed cats and African wildcats. Based in Kirkwood, South Africa, the sanctuary, started in 2012, is home to four leopards, and one cub, cheetahs, servals, caracals and Africa’s smallest cat - the black-footed cat.
