Meet Matilda the Alien-Eyed Cat and Instagram Star
No, this picture is not photoshopped. And this cat is real.
Matilda is a two year-old tabby cat that has some unique, beautiful orb-like eyes. This has led to her nickname of Matilda the Alien Cat. Her ocular issue began when she was barely one year old. Her owners explained that "the lenses in her eyes spontaneously detached, and since then her eyes have grown and she has lost most of her sight." Matilda has been to multiple veterinarians and eye specialists who have no idea how this condition happened. Specialists believe that an eye enucleation, or eye removal, may be the next step. But for now, her blood and ocular pressure tests have come back normal. Her owners have also said that Matilda doesn't seem to be in any pain from her condition.
