Take a look at Matilda – the alien cat, which is taking over the entire web!
Check out one of Instagram’s latest stars – the alien cat, named Matilda, which has taken over the Internet.
Matilda was brought into her owners’ home looking like your average kitten. Nowadays the two year old cat has been dubbed as “alien” because of the extremely rare condition she developed. The kitty is suffering from lens luxation – a condition, which is making her eye lenses detach. As a result, her eyes appear to be abnormally large and glassy and making her look like an alien creature.
The “alien” cat’s owners decided to set up an Instagram account for their kitten and show her off regardless of her disability. The fact that the cat is blind and her condition is getting worse doesn’t stop her owners from loving her or taking care of her. In fact, they are even urging people to help other animals, who have similar conditions. Thanks to the huge interest people from all around the world have been showing to the cat, Matilda’s owners have been able to tell her story and reach animal lovers, who are willing to help other animals suffering from lens luxation. According to Matilda’s Instagram page, which currently has more than 40,000 followers, the vets have advised her owners to either put the kitty to sleep or to opt for a dangerous operation – neither of which sounds appealing to them.
The alien kitty is making headlines in news agencies from all across the globe these days. Apart from her official Instagram page (AlienCatMatilda), she also has her own website (AlienCatMatilda.com), on which you can read the kitty’s full story or donate some money for her cause on her CanadaHelps page.
