I'm digging into my mental archives here, I think either I also had a cat with two different eyes or a good friend of mine had one. This was back in the 80s, when everything was cool anyway. LoL. Bowie!

I had the fortune/misfortune of growing up in a house where we didn't spay/neuter in time. Got one white stray. At one point we had over 20 cats, more than three-quarters were all-white with short hair. Several of them had one blue and one brown eye. Also, almost all the white kittens were born with a smudge of black on their head (which they outgrew... very cute while it lasted though).
