In recent years, it has become increasingly common to find images and videos of strange and exotic cats on the internet. These felines, which stand out for their unconventional appearances, have gained a large number of followers and enormous popularity on social networks.
Among the strange cats that we can find on the internet, those that have unusual coats stand out, such as hairless sphinx cats, munchkin cats with short legs, or Scottish fold cats with ears folded forward.
There are also cats with unusual eye colors, such as khao manee cats with different colored eyes, or Siamese cats with crossed eyes.
Matilda is a cat who has gained a large following on social media due to her large, expressive eyes that have earned her the nickname “alien cat.” This unique looking kitten was rescued from a home where she was not cared for, but she found a loving home with a family who adopted her and cared for her ever since.
At first, Matilda was a normal, healthy kitten. But as she grew older, her owners noticed something strange about her right eye: she squinted frequently. Initially, they thought it might be a simple eye irritation or infection, but then they noticed that her pupils were enlarging and constricting irregularly. This condition seemed to worsen over time, and soon Matilda began to look different from any other cat they had seen before.
Matilda’s veterinarians initially diagnosed the condition as a lens luxation, which is a condition in which the lens of the eye shifts from its normal position. It was recommended that she undergo surgery to correct the problem, but Matilda’s owners decided to look at other treatment options instead of having her undergo surgery.
For several months, Matilda’s owners searched for alternative treatments to help alleviate their cat’s symptoms. They tried different types of eye drops, oral medications, and other therapies, but nothing seemed to help reduce the size of Matilda’s pupils.
Finally, after many months of treatment, the lenses in Matilda’s eyes became dislodged and her pupils became permanently enlarged. It was then that her owners realized that her cat had developed a rare eye condition that gave her an unusual appearance.
Before long, images of Matilda began appearing on social media, and people were fascinated by her appearance. Her quirkiness and adorable personality attracted the attention of people around the world, and Matilda quickly became an online viral sensation. Her popularity on social media allowed her family to raise funds for her care and treatment.
But Matilda seemed to be having a very bad time, her condition was evident and her eyes looked bigger and bigger. For her ophthalmologist, the next step was clear, her eyes had to be removed as soon as possible.
After a successful surgery, Matilda’s owner posted a photo of her current condition that said: “The face I remembered from when she was a kitten returned, all sewn up and decorated with a cone and a ribbon.”
Despite her health challenges, Matilda is a happy and playful cat who enjoys life with her loving family. Her owners are grateful for the love and support they have received from around the world, and hope that her story can help educate people about the unique medical conditions that can affect cats and other animals.
