The Cat With Gigantic Alien Eyes Is Rapidly Taking Over Instagram.
If you caught a glimpse of Matilda the at from behind or from the side, she's look like you average, run-of-the-mill cat. It's only when you see her head-on that you realize that this cat has something special about her appearance.
“We’re still unsure as to why this made her eyes grow,” owner Meghan said in an interview. "It has something to do with her collagen structure.”
Sure enough, Matilda's eyes are enormous and alien-like, blacked out with a few milky shadows. She's totally blind, but her owner says she reacts to people's presences so swiftly that it's hard to tell she can't see them at all.
Though they might look strange, Matilda's unusual eyes cause her no pain or discomfort. Plus, her photos have made her an Internet celebrity: She has over 46,000 followers on Instagram. Check out this oddly charming cat below.
My eyes grow steadily worse and I can't see anymore 😿 but I'm still a happy little alien who loves to purr and snuggle and eat and get into trouble! And I'll keep posting.
