Meet Matilda – This Mysterious Condition Makes This Cat’s Eyeballs Look Alien-like

Each cat has something special that characterizes them, whether it’s the looks or behaviors, but one very special cat in particular that stole our attention is Matilda. This adorable feline has a rare genetic condition that makes her eyeballs look very alien-like. Unfortunately, the cat is now blind but still seems like she’s enjoying her life nonetheless.

Matilda was born in 2013 and found a home 12 weeks after that. When she was a baby her eyes were normal, but later on, she started showing some symptoms of spontaneous lens luxation. Her eyeballs would get so big, it would feel like she’s staring right in your soul.


Not knowing anything about this condition, Matilda’s owners consulted with a veterinary ophthalmologist who diagnosed her with spontaneous lens luxation. After that, the owners reached out to the rescue center from where they adopted her, where they found out that her siblings share the same condition.


It was a very tough moment for the owners to decide whether they should put her under surgery. But after a lot of consults with the veterinary ophthalmologist’s, they decided let Matilda’s eyes do what they naturally would, and would not intervene with a traumatic surgery that did not appear to be helpful.


They helped Matilda feel more comfortable with eye drops to relieve the pain and pressure she was feeling, and after a little while she went back to her old self. No matter how Matilda looked like, her parents loved her no matter what. Sharing her story in Instagram, Matilda won the hearts of many other people, where now counts around 140k followers.


A GoFundMe started for this adorable feline’s eye care, including eye drops and the surgery she will need to have eventually, met its fundraising goal and raised over $2,500. The page says that a quarter of the money will go to animals in need.


Same Crocodile, Same Place 15 Years Apart- Steve Irwin’s Son Recreates His Father’s Most Iconic Photo

We are living in a world that nothing is guaranteed forever. due to extreme pollution and global warming and harmful thing happening the earth is becoming a big mess. Not only for humans but also for animals. They have been massively going on extinct and unprotected by human harm and evilness.

Nonetheless, the rates of extinction that are currently taking place are actually comparable to the rates that took place when dinosaurs were wiped off of the face of the planet.

However, there is still a ray of hope when it comes to people who actually care about other beings except themselves.

I bet Everyone knows the late, great Steve Irwin. He left behind an incredible legacy. He was a crocodile hunter with a heart of gold. Now, his loved ones are doing their best to carry on the tradition. His children Robert and Bindi have continued their conservation efforts. Irwin’s wife Terri is also heavily involved.

When we remember steve we see that all he ever wanted was that all the animals in the Australian Zoo where he used to work to be treated with the utmost respect. If these animals are not given the chance to hunt down moving prey, they are more likely to become extinct. That’s why the efforts of trained handlers are important. Without their assistance, the crocodiles are unable to feed in the proper manner.

His son Murray made a recreation photo like his father did but 15 years after a very iconic photo of his father feeding the same crocodile. Now, Robert is the one who is responsible for his welfare. The Instagram post went viral and was liked by every animal lover out there. And Robert hopes he can shed light to everyone about animal rights welfare.
