Matilda, the Alien-Eyed Cat

Matilda, the Alien-Eyed Cat

Matilda is a Tabby cat who has gained a bit of fame on the internet because of her alien-like eyes. Her eyes are the result of a painful genetic eye disorder called spontaneous lens luxation. The condition causes the lenses to detach and the eyes to enlarge and stretch.

Matilda was born with normal sized eyes, but as she grew older she began to squint with one eye. Her owners nicknamed her Quasimodo. Several vet visits later they were informed of her genetic condition. She is now blind, but still manages to pose for her 145k Instagram followers.



If you like cute cats, be sure to follow Matilda on Instagram. Her owners often raise money for her continued care.
