A little feline named Matilda has become an Internet sensation thanks in part to a medical condition that has caused her to develop "alien eyes."

The Instagram account started by her family has garnered Matilda some 56,000 followers.

Born on Valentine's Day back in 2013 and she was adopted by a couple shortly thereafter, this otherwise normal cat has a condition that makes her eyes resemble flying saucers.



Matilda's unusual look has made her a regular feline celebrity. Matilda's owners have set up a fundraising page to raise money to help care for her.
