Meet the Adorable MATILDA, the Cat with the 'Alien' Eyes

Meet Matilda, the tabby cat with the alien eyes. She lives with her loving servants who include The Bearded Man, The Lady, and Dog.


Matilda, born on Valentine’s Day in 2013, was saved by the rescue society and after much searching for answers to her eye problems by her owners, it was discovered she suffered from spontaneous lens luxation, a condition where the lens spontaneously detach.



It started with her right eye, then her left.


From their website:

When the left eye followed the right and the lens luxated, she became withdrawn and sad for a couple of days and her servants were extremely worried. They used the eyedrops that the veterinary ophthalmologist had prescribed to reduce pressure and pain, which Matilda hated, but they kept at it. After two days she came around, and became her regular self again. Those days were the hardest ones! It has been life as usual since then.

Matilda’s servants take her to see a vet regularly and to see the ophthalmologist when necessary. She is always up to date on her checkups and shots, and they watch her very closely to notice any changes in behaviour that might suggest that she’s uncomfortable. No matter what happens, her servants think she’s perfect and beautiful and will love and care for her the absolute best way that they can for however long this little alien is here.

A gofundme page has been set up for Matilda to help with her ongoing medical expenses that has already surpassed its goal:

We are so happy and grateful to be able to say that we have reached our goal. It is a true gift to know that we have the resources readily available for Matilda in the event that she needs emergency surgery. It also means that we can pay for her ongoing need for medicine and veterinary ophthalmologist visits. We are also so happy to be able to donate a healthy portion of the money raised to people that need help paying for medical needs that their animals need right now. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who has donated. We are so touched by your generosity.
